Yes, that is snow right over the same location where the supercell thunderstorms formed yesterday. Wow, the second storm this season that has had tornadoes one day and snow the next, and this time it may go from tornadoes to a blizzard. This storm is tracking just a bit farther south, but it will be kicked northeastward tonight. Have a great day. I had 1.60" of rain in south Overland Park, KS. How much did you have? We are currently analyzing the end of the week system and we will continue this conversation in the comments section.
As I am about to broadcast the weather on KSHB.com and on 41 Action News at 6 PM, take a look at what I will be showing:
This weather pattern still has a few features we are identifying, confirming, and determining what these factors will mean for, not just the next three months of winter, but also for the spring and summer seasons. The forecast we issue Tuesday night will include a seasonal snow forecast for Kansas City, which has been within three inches of snow the past couple of years.
The warm beginning to this season continues. El Niño has continued to strengthen. And, the most recent storm system is now about to develop. The Great Lakes just had Lake-Effect Rain, and then it finally became cold enough for some Lake-Effect snow. The weather pattern is now set for the season, and we are continuing our diligent work on figuring out what this pattern will mean for each location.

A strong storm system is now ejecting out of the Rocky Mountain states and out into the plains. This storm is producing an intensifying surface low this morning and snow is falling across parts of the high plains of northeastern Colorado, southeastern Wyoming, southwestern Nebraska, and northwestern Kansas. This area has a Blizzard Warning......
A strong storm system will be moving out into the plains states tonight. This will be drawing in some warm and moist air from the Gulf of Mexico. This is far different than what was happening just one year ago today. Let's start with a look back to last year. Look at this map that I plotted to be valid at midnight on Veteran's Day 2014
The beige area indicates sustained winds of 30 to 40 knots, with gusts to 45 knots, or around 52 mph. Snow is also possible over northwestern Kansas, so we could have blizzard conditions near I-70:
Good afternoon Weather2020 bloggers,
Over 250 people entered the LRC Long Range Forecast Contest last month. We were forecasting the weather for the last week of October, and this is the one time of the year that we barely can use […]
