Good early morning bloggers,
We are now done with looking at models. Well, most of you are likely asleep as it is 2:30 AM. Snow is about to start falling in Kansas City for the first time this season. It isn’t quite a Christmas miracle, but I will take it. I just glanced at the models to see where the vorticity was located, and we are lucky to be getting what we are getting. The new “vort max” is forecast to develop over eastern Kansas and western Missouri between now and 10 AM, and then zip east over Missouri and out into the eastern states later today. This transition is different than what was being forecast, and as I said, we are just fortunate to be getting this early morning snow at all. It will move by fast. Here is the 2:20 AM radar image:
Here is the 2:40 AM Radar, as it is about to start. It will likely go from one flake to billions of flakes within minutes:
I will check in later after I get Sunny The Weather Dog up and out for a walk in search of the first snowflake. Have a good morning. And, go to Weather2020.com to join in the conversation over there.
