AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO 1103 PM CST Wed Feb 19 2020
Discussion. Issued at 323 PM CST WED FEB 19 2020
Widespread cloud cover has overspread the area, with regional radar imagery showing a blossoming of echoes over Nebraska and Kansas this afternoon. Dry air in the lower atmosphere will continue to prohibit the eastern progression of this activity, with virga initially occurring over eastern Kansas into western Missouri. By mid-evening, deeper ascent/banding may allow some of this activity to saturate the column and reach the surface near the KS/MO border. Snowfall totals over east central Kansas into west central Missouri will be light, generally under a half-inch of snow across Linn KS, Miami KS, and Bates Counties.
Surface high pressure builds into the region on Thursday into Friday, with a very dry RH troposphere resulting in mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be well-below normal on Thursday in the upper 20s to middle 30s, with readings gradually moderating on Friday back to seasonable temperatures. Strong warm-air advection in advance of the next upper wave will allow highs on Saturday to reach the 50s. This area of low pressure moves across the region on Sunday into Monday, bringing with it widespread precipitation chances. The eventual track and intensity of the system will greatly determine precipitation type - but at this time, rain appears to be the predominant precipitation type Sun/Mon. Any lingering precipitation late Monday into Tuesday would have the potential to be light snow, although confidence in this scenario remains low at this time.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
