Suchan Says: 2:50pm Snow Update

blog

Snow for next 2 to 4 hours in the area before quickly tapering off as system pulls northeast

The expected transition to mainly snow to end this first winter storm of the season is on schedule.  There are still a few sleet reports coming in but the overall final transition to mainly snow is well underway.

Reports of slick roads with slide offs are coming in.  Accumulations thus far range from 1″ to 3″ in the viewing area.  Just had a report of near 2″ of snow and sleet in Olathe.

Metro final totals will range from 1″ to 3″ with the snow and sleet combination compacting accumulations.  A few spots in the northern half of the area may see 2″ to 4″ with only isolated spots of higher amounts.

Roads will be very slick this evening as the sun sets and temperatures cool.  Any slushy areas will refreeze.

Clouds tonight but cold in the teens to near 20 degrees.  Roads will be hazardous overnight into Tuesday morning.
