Teachman’s Take: Winter Weather Advisory In Effect
We are under a Winter Weather Advisory for today. The atmosphere is moistening up and patchy freezing drizzle is possible through noon.
There is a nose of warmer air — with temps around freezing trying to work northeast. It’s going SLOW!
After lunch, the majority of the area will see drizzle and have damp roadways. HOWEVER, there will still be light snow and freezing drizzle north of 36 Highway where slick spots will continue through evening. The metro’s evening drive is expected to continue to be wet as drizzle continues. We’ll continue to warm to the lower 40s in the afternoon.
After midnight on Saturday, temperatures start to drop. We’ll end up in the teens by Saturday afternoon. Any freezing drizzle or showers in the morning will change to all snow by 10 AM across NE KS and NW MO.
This band of snow will shift south/southeast through the morning and early afternoon.
Anywhere from 1″ to 3″ is possible.
I WILL STRESS, a few of the latest model runs have been increasing our snowfall totals through Saturday evening. There are some that want to drop 4″ to 6″ near I-35 on both sides of the state line.
Temps bottom out around -3 Sunday morning. The day will be in the deep freeze in the teens for the Chiefs game.
Sunshine does return and holds strong through Monday. Partly cloudy Tuesday through Thursday. Temps will dig out of the chill and be in the lower to middle 40s next week.
