The 8th Snow Event of the Winter

Good Saturday bloggers,

We are likely going to have our 8th main snow of the season and we officially stand at 5.4″ of snow for the winter. So, right now we are averaging 0.8″ of snow per event and this next event will have a tough time raising the average.

Here is the weather time line for this next event. If you are out and about 6 PM to 9 PM there will be developing slick spots and after 9 PM is when the roads will get more slick.

1
Now, let’s go through this next small snow event.

SATURDAY 6 PM TO 9 PM: We will see areas of light snow increase with some freezing drizzle to the southeast. The roads will be in decent shape with some slick spots developing.

1

SATURDAY 9 PM TO MIDNIGHT: The snow will be most likely falling north of I-70 with scattered light snow to the south. Once again, this is not a strong or organized storm system.

2

SUNDAY MIDNIGHT TO 3 AM: This is the best chance of snow for all of KC, but just like last time we are waiting for a trailing band of snow. The only difference, is we have a better chance of scattered light snow before the band. It won’t take much to get slick with temperatures between 10° and 15°.

3

SUNDAY 3 AM TO 7 AM: The snow will end and move off to the southeast. Yes, this is one notch away from a non-snow event.

4

SUNDAY: Any snow areas will be over by 9-10 AM and the sun will return during the afternoon as highs reach the 20s.

5

SNOWFALL FORECAST:

Based on the new data we are at a dusting to 1″ of snow for most locations.  1″ to 2″ of snow is possible north of highway 36. This data has KCI meeting the seasons snowfall per event average of 0.8″. It may end up less than this.

7

This is yet again a snow lovers nightmare, but if it is not going to snow, it might as well be warmer. This week we are in for a huge warm up as highs by Valentine’s day should climb to 55°-60°.

Have a great weekend.

Jeff

Heavy freezing drizzle, ice accumulation adding up between 0.05 – 0.10” in Ashland, MO just after midnight. Also saw out to 240 hour no snow on the GFS or the Canadian in the next 10 days other than maybe a dusting for Northwest and Central Missouri. Maybe since the models don’t show anything maybe this go around we see a significant snow that actually adds up to more than an inch

Light snow now accumulating in Prairie Village KS. Freezing mist too.

Some people on this blog need to go. Many of you forget this is a weather blog, and still feel the need to light into people and “troll.”

Gary, you ought to do something about this because this blog nowadays is bloggers arguing over something completely irrelevant to what this blog should be about. Can’t you all find another place to bicker and let us weather enthusiasts be at peace?!

We left Overland Park to head home to Berryton (just SE of Topeka) at just after 7. Went 10-15 mph under the speed limit the entire way because of the freezing drizzle. Windshield was icing up the whole way – thank goodness for the little spot that the defroster could keep clear!

If you’re feeling motivated to train for the next Winter Olympics, I’ll suggest you find a vacant parking lot in and around Clinton, Mo. freezing mist all day basically. It was the only type of precip I didn’t want to see and never expected either. There were district wrestling tournaments all over the state today with tons of people leaving after a complete glaze…hopefully everyone stays safe! For a moment today I couldn’t help but wonder if the lakes had anything to do with the constant drizzle.

Update from Omaha. 2.75 inches fell last night. Snowing again now expecting another inch tonight. I’m so frustrated no snow is falling back at home. It was interesting to see driving up yesterday the cutoff line for snowcover. Just south of St. Joe no snowcover but St. Joe North solid snowcover. We just aren’t in the right spot this year. I’m glad we were able to squeeze out a 3 incher back in December in Lawrence.

Appears we have another troll.

Bcause the real Heat uses Heat Miser ( separated ) , not HeatMiser
And I doubt the real Heat has a mom and cousin that drove up from OK

There is not enough lift to reach the layer of colder air higher in the atmosphere (also called the dendritic growth zone) so the water vapor condenses into supercooled water instead of forming ice crystals

NWS facebook now

Reports of freezing drizzle with some snow mixing in have been coming in across the KC metro & central MO. A light glazing is expected in the KC Metro, with up to one tenth of an inch expected in central MO.

Precipitation is still expected to change over to all snow around or shortly after midnight. 1-3 inches of snow is still forecast, with higher amounts expected along the MO/IA/NE border and less than 1 inch expected for the KC Metro.

Take caution if on the roads tonight!

It’s out of the way, but you might be better heading far west into Kansas, picking up I-35 there, doesn’t look as bad further west. At least right now. My area just south of St Joseph looks to miss another one.

The weather (or lack thereof) is bad enough but the personal sniping on here is even worse.

Looking at the Pleasant Hill radar … looks like the precip (of some form) is moving from south to north which seems odd to me.

Freezing drizzle as the HRRR yesterday indicated could form as the lift is just not there and we are stuck with low level squeeze

Just to put into perspective how challenging this weather forecast has been & how perplexing it is to me, the NWS forecast office in St. Louis had a snow map up at about 3 AM this morning that showed 1-2” for Columbia & Jeff city. By mid morning they changed it to around 1” of snow or less, Then early to mid afternoon around 2 o’clock I looked in their map said 1-2” again & now on their evening update their map says less than 1 inch of snow and sleet for Columbia and Jeff city. Literally changed four times… Read more »

A 4.8 earthquake struck South Korea in the region of Pohang, which is along the eastern coast of the peninsula, a little bit more than 100 miles from where the 2018 Winter Olympic Games are being held. There were no immediate reports of damage, however those in the Olympic Village with their cell phones on did get an alert.

Yes Ryan, but if I had a million dollar I’d be a millionaire, or if a quarterback had only made the pass they would have won the superbowl. The point every single time we bring on models 5, 7, 10 days out that show us getting a snow storm..we don’t.. LoL…so, not exactly sure what you are arguing for…their track record for accuracy when it comes to KC snow is horrific.
