It’s going to be a wet start to the work week with a chance of rain and thunder through much of Monday. The afternoon and evening will hold a better chance of scattered showers and thunder. Morning temperatures in the 50s and 60s won’t budge much until we get into the afternoon when they fall into the 40s.

Winds will be breezy and switch out of the northwest later today. Rain chances continue tonight but we’ll have to watch out for a wintry mix by early Tuesday as colder air advances from the north.

North MO will have a better chance at seeing a mix late tonight and Tuesday with mainly just rain in the Metro. But with freezing rain and sleet just to our north we’ll have to watch out for possible slick spots developing in the Metro too.

Williams’s Wrap: From Winter To Spring Saturday

February 17, 2018 - Leave a Response

Early Saturday morning drivers need to be cautious on the roads as a quick wintry mix moves through the area. This short event will wrap up by late morning, a little earlier in the Metro.

Midday skies will start to clear and turn sunny by the afternoon. Once the sun comes back out, we’ll see a spike in temperatures as they get into the low to mid 50s.

Sunday will provide a warmer end to the weekend with a partly sunny sky, a gusty south wind, and highs in the low 60s. A chance of rain increases late Sunday night and turns into a likelihood by Monday. There could also be a few rumbles of thunder but severe weather isn’t expected at this time. Showers Monday will be around from morning to evening and then change to a chance for a mix or snow by early Tuesday.

Williams’s Wrap: A Taste Of Early Spring

February 13, 2018 - Leave a Response
Quiet weather continues to dominate in the area. Temperatures in the 20s this morning are actually a good sign of warmer things to come. Previous mornings have been a lot colder so that means Tuesday afternoon will be warmer with highs around the upper 40s. A partly cloudy sky and a south wind will help temperatures become more comfortable.

It still looks like temperatures should be able to sneak their way into the low 60s for Valentine’s Day. There will be more clouds than sunshine and a south breeze but 60s in February will be a treat.

February 12, 2018 - Leave a Response

A quiet but cold start to Monday with morning temperatures in the teens and single digits. Even though we’ll need coats all day it won’t be too bad of a start to the work week. Skies will be mostly sunny and highs reach the upper 30s and low 40s. A few more clouds move in tonight and winds switch out of the south. A southerly wind will help highs get up to around 50 on Tuesday. Temperatures in the 60s are looking more and more likely for Valentine’s Day.

Williams’s Wrap: Quiet, Warmer Weather Moving In

February 11, 2018 - Leave a Response

Even though the snow and freezing drizzle has stopped falling drivers will still need to take it a bit slower on the roads today. It won’t be as cold with highs around 30 but many of us will still be reaching for the heaviest coat before heading anywhere.

Skies go from gray to sunny by the afternoon. Monday starts frigid with lows around 10 and it’ll still be a cold day but a mostly sunny sky will help warm highs into the upper 30s. The warming trend continues with the warmest day of the week being Valentine’s Day!

Williams’s Wrap: Wintry Weekend Weather

February 10, 2018 - Leave a Response

Saturday morning and afternoon will be pretty dry before round 2 of our wintry weather moves in later this evening. Early morning drivers will still need to be cautious of isolated slick spots after overnight freezing drizzle and light snow. This has prompted a Winter Weather Advisory for the Metro and south of I-70 until 9am. Another Advisory goes into effect at 6pm for North MO.

Dressing in layers will be a must as highs only the reach the low 20s. Late in the evening a band of snow will move into North MO and move through the viewing area during the night. Dropping up to 3″ north of the Metro and only around an inch or less in KC and points south.

A few flurries will stick around shortly after sunrise Sunday but we’ll end the day with some sun and “warmer” highs in the upper 20s.

Here we go again!  We are on the eve of another chance for snow.  But this time it’s different.  The set up is different.  Yet, it looks eerily familiar. Saturday’s chance of snow resembles a storm that hit us just before Christmas.  Same kind of set up.  An arctic blast, followed by a small spin in the atmosphere that created just enough lift to produce snow.  When will it snow?  The best chance appears to be Saturday night.  Surface 3This is when the moisture and storm come together to create 8 – 10 hours of light to moderate snowfall.  But also notice to the southeast of Kansas City, there is sleet and freezing rain showing up.  We must watch this area to see how far north it comes.  That would certainly cut into the forecast snow totals.  With that in mind, here is what I’m thinking for snowfall; beginning Saturday afternoon and ending Sunday morning.DMA_RPM_Snow_Accumulation With Legend 2DMA_RPM_Snow_Accumulation With LegendAt this point, 10 AM on Friday, 1 to 3 inches of snow fall is a good bet.  But there could be a heavier band that develops within this large area of snow and in that very thin band, probably no more than 20 miles wide, there could be 4 to 5 inches of snow.  Where that band sets up is anyone’s guess.  We really won’t know until it starts happening.  But it appears it will be somewhere very close to the north-side of Kansas City.   Here is a summary of our potentially snowy weekend.  This includes times and intensities. Weather_Hazards_Any WeekendAlso, as of 10 AM Friday, there were no Advisories or Warnings issued but stayed tuned, I expect that to change.  Have a great weekend!

Tuesday starts dry but cold with temperatures in the teens and single digits. Clouds ahead of our next storm system have already started moving in so we won’t get much sun today.

Snow should start to fall during the afternoon and continue through the evening. Amounts will vary depending on where you live.

North MO could see anywhere between 2-4″. Around the Metro and along I-70 as much as 2″ possible. And areas south of I-70 could see around an inch or less.

Roads will be slippery by late afternoon with that trend continuing all the way into early Wednesday morning. We’ll get a chilly but dry break for a few days before our next chance of wintry weather moves in over the weekend.

Williams’s Wrap: More Snow Coming

February 5, 2018 - Leave a Response

Drivers will need to take it easy on the roads this morning after yesterday’s snow. Temperatures start very frigid in the single digits and below zero. You’ll need a coat all day but high temperatures improve quite a bit and reach the 30s.

download (6)download (7)

There’s a chance for snow late this morning and during the afternoon across northern MO, totals should be less than an inch. Some flakes could sneak into the KC Metro but very little accumulation is expected. Accumulating snow returns tomorrow. Snow showers move in from the south during the mid to late morning and then spread into the area through the afternoon, continuing through the evening.

Several inches of snow south of I-70 and a couple of inches in Kansas City possible. Lesser amounts for areas farther north.

Williams’s Wrap: Sunday Snow Update

February 4, 2018 - Leave a Response

Area snow, which will be heavy at times, will continue into the afternoon. Totals will be around 1-2″. Snow is sticking to the ground and causing slick conditions which has prompted a Winter Weather Advisory until 3pm.

download

Snow will be done by late afternoon with temperatures staying in the teens the rest of the day. Another snow chance moves into northern MO Monday to amount to around an inch but Kansas City will more than likely not see any of that snow. The Metro’s next likelihood will be Tuesday with 1.5-2″ possible around KC and 2-3″ possible south of I-70.
