Another Storm, Another Miss Part 3

Good Sunday bloggers,

We are tracking a storm system moving into Missouri and it is missing western Missouri, shock. It is not only missing our area, but it will become a big storm for the Tennessee Valley and New England. So, the beat goes on.

Here is Weather Track Radar from 630 AM Sunday. There is a large area of snow from central Iowa to northeast Missouri. Eastern Kansas and western Missouri will see sprinkles and flurries as the storm system tracks southeast.

10

SUNDAY NOON: Snow and rain will be occurring in central and eastern Missouri with mostly wet roads as temperatures will be around or above freezing and the snow is falling during the daylight hours in March. Now, that being said, if you are headed east today, be aware of some slick/slushy spots. The heavier snow areas will cause slush on roads.  Eastern Kansas and western Missouri will see some sprinkles and flurries, but another miss.

1

MONDAY MORNING: The storm system will be intensifying as it moves through the Tennessee Valley. Our area will have lingering low clouds with lows 30°-35°. There may be slick spots in central and eastern Missouri.

2

MONDAY AFTERNOON: The sun will return as highs climb to around 50°, a nice day. Our little storm system reaches the east coast and is ready to rapidly intensify.

3

TUESDAY: Wow!  The northeast is experiencing their third large storm in 10 days. This will likely cause more travel delays across the country as the big airports get affected by wind, rain and snow.

4

SNOWFALL FORECAST: Right now it looks like the heaviest snow will stay offshore of the big cities and affect northern New England the most. Boston still may see 6″-10″ of snow with NYC seeing 1″-2″. A slight track shift and this changes quite a bit. Needless to say, it is another big storm system.

5

As the storm system churns through the Tennessee valley, it looks to target Kentucky with 6″-10″ of snow.

6

And, here we are. We sit in Kansas and Missouri where KC receives no snow and northeast Missouri receives a dusting to 2″ of snow.

7

The weather will be mostly calm through the next week and we will see a major warm up to highs around 70° by Thursday. Our next storm system arrives next weekend, but it is trying to miss us as well. We will have more on this through the week.

Have a great week.

Gary, going to Branson next weekend. What are you thoughts on weather for down there while we are there. My weather app on the phone has rain.

well folks, as many of you may remember, I was focused on the 6th through the 12th for our best chance of a more potent system coming through. I would call this a win/loss. A win for the LRC as it materialized and a loss for me as I felt it would have a greater impact on our viewing area. While it did impact the outer edges of our viewing area, I still claim it as a miss on my part. While there is still always a chance of seeing some frozen precip., our winter is basically over and different… Read more »

The moving ads above, for previous blogs, are dealing my tablet fits. This page keeps jumping up and down.
Normally does not do this unless I go back to look ar a previous blog. But they are really zipping by up there.
Hope it gets fixed for the rest of the week.

Would be nice to get enough rain to green things up, but still doesn’t look promising through end of month. Really need this to change from I-35 West and north into Missouri and Kansas big time

Disappointing, I have 1.25 inches of snow but the really heavy bands have just missed so far. I was really hoping to see some huge snowflakes.

Too bad we can’t post photos here. Would be fun to see those fat, juicy snowflakes.

I personally like the weather stats since they bring added information, context to increasing drought conditions.

According to the NWS, Dodge City has only received 0.53″ since October 1st! That’s 161 days folks. They average 20-22″ of moisture per year. In fact, the current streak stands at 155 consecutive days with under 0.10″ of moisture recorded! Their all-time record is 167 days I believe. Also, Nov-Feb is the driest ever recorded for central, south-central, and southwest climate divisions in Kansas. I know some of you are tired of me pulling up these statistics. Well, I’m tired of the continued parched conditions in central and western Kansas! That and the fact of how remarkable this stretch is… Read more »

Here is a little research I did using my nearest reporting station that has good data over 100 years. Concordia, KS is all time dry for this LRC starting Oct 7. I picked out the top 10 driest years from Oct 7 to March 10 to see how they turned out. Three of them ended above normal with 7 below. Two of those years (89 and 96) had normal rains from May onward but remained dry until that time. All of the years that saw rains improve did so in mid May or early June and not before. Five of… Read more »

If by next weekend there’s no cold in the forecast, the winter tires are definitely coming off my car. Bring in spring!

Just checked the 0z run for both the Euro and GFS for next weekend. Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day. Both models show temps in the middle to upper 60s. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it hit 70 or so. As for rain, the GFS shows scattered rain Friday night into early Saturday with clearing thru the morning. The Euro does not show rain in our area. Since it is still 6 days out, things could change. Kind of chilly this morning here in south PV. Overcast skies. Jeff says temps should be in low to mid 40s today. Maybe… Read more »
