Teachman’s Take: Winter Storm Watch

***WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT:  NOON FRIDAY – SUNDAY AFTERNOON***
We’ve had a few areas of freezing drizzle this morning, but most locations are dry.  Temps this morning will be in the upper teens & lower 20s.  Wind chills will be in the single digits & lower teens.  This is the cold air that will enhance our threat for freezing rain to come this weekend.
Today’s forecast:

From noon on Friday through Sunday afternoon, we are under a Winter Storm Watch.

The majority of this storm will be in the form of freezing rain.  Friday afternoon, south of I-70, is where we could have some patchy freezing rain.

Amounts look light Friday through Saturday morning, but could still cause slick spots.

The heaviest freezing rain arrives late in the day on Saturday and into Sunday.  Below, PURPLE = ICE and GREEN = RAIN.  You can see where the heaviest starts to line up with the ice from southern Kansas into Oklahoma.  That is what will move in Saturday night through early Sunday afternoon.
teach4
Temps may be slower to warm above freezing, which puts the majority of this as freezing rain into Sunday afternoon.  We will see the warmer air arrive during the Chiefs game.

Another wave of moisture moves in Sunday night and into Monday.  This is expected to be all liquid as travel begins to improve.
Take care,
Teach
