The blue shows the Winter Storm Watches, and the green area is a Blizzard Watch. It is going to be tough for us down in Kansas City to watch this unfold as we still sit on around 5" of snow for the season.
Oh boy, the models went in another direction last night. Is this trend going to continue? What do we know, and what do we not know yet on this next storm?
Welcome to the LRC Forecast Experience Blog. We have had some great interaction as we share in this weather experience and I would like to thank all of you for your participation. We are all learning a lot by sharing in such a positive way. In today's blog I am going to showcase why the storm sill likely take the farther south track
This next storm developing later this weekend into next week looks rather similar to a storm from 50 days ago (this year's pattern is close to 50 days).

We aren't being shy, and here is what I showed last night.

For those of us in Kansas City we can't even fathom what just happened. Definition of fathom: Understand after much thought. Here in Kansas City we keep getting the small part of winter storms, and the wet part of the warm side of storm systems this winter. In the past week KC had three winter events totaling around 2 to 3 inches of snow. A few spots had more, but you get my point. It just doesn't seem fair.
While parts of the eastern seaboard are getting blasted by this current winter storm, the next major winter storm has shown up. A few of you have discussed the likely storm due in around the first of February, well, here is last night's depiction, and again, this is just a first look:
