Good Morning Weather2020 Bloggers,

schools

Well it finally happened. Kansas City Missouri Schools are having a snow day and over 100 other schools are closed today as well.  We were forecasting 1 to 2 inches of snow and it is very cold out there. Many secondary roads are snow covered this morning while the main highways have slick spots. This weak storm system is moving by this morning. There was one last band of snow moving in at sunrise and this could produce an additional 1/2″ or less in areas near KC.

Radar as of 7:15 AM:  Between 7:15 and 7:45 AM this band had shifted east by two counties!

This radar image shows a band of moderate snow west of Topeka trying to work its way east. Let’s see how this tracks this morning, but it looks like it will bring an additional dusting to 1/2″ of snow to the south side of the KC metro area.  After this moves by some sun should work its way out this afternoon.
