AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO 311 AM CST Mon Dec 16 2019
Discussion. Issued at 311 AM CST MON DEC 16 2019
The final round of snowfall is developing ahead of the main longwave mid to upper-level trough now entering the Central Plains region. A dry layer between 800 hPa and 650 hPa will minimize overall accumulations early Monday morning where lighter radar echoes are noted north of I-70, though a west to east band of more moderate snow is reaching the surface across central to eastern Kansas. This area of precip will continue to lift northeast as the main wave pushes eastward through the afternoon. The axis of precip will eventually lose its northeastward movement and take on a more easterly direction, keeping highest additional snowfall accumulations along and south of Highway 50. With that said, the Kansas City area may be clipped by this axis of heavier snowfall through the morning, which may complicate the morning commute. The more broad area of precip further north will lead to minor snowfall accumulations between half an inch to an inch generally for northern Kansas City and points east of I-35 up to northeast Missouri. Highest snow totals will be limited to areas from east central Kansas through central Missouri, where an additional 1 to 2 inches are possible through Monday evening. Have cancelled the Winter Storm Warning and continued/extended the Winter Weather Advisory across the area with the exception of northwest to north central Missouri.
Sub-freezing highs are expected once again today, while overnight wind chills will dip into the single digits across the area. Will not see any melting of snow/ice on roadways until temps slowly begin to rebound beginning Tuesday. Thus, hazardous travel conditions will continue throughout the area today, particularly for areas which are affected by the band of heavier snow across east central Kansas to central Missouri. Its important to note that though the overall winter storm event is winding down, significant impacts remain possible today for travelers, with quick reductions to visibility and high snow rates possible, despite lower snow accumulations compared to Sunday.
Improved conditions will return tomorrow as the main storm system continues to work its way out of the region and a westerly component to surface winds cuts off cold advection trends. Temps will steadily warm through the week, ultimately rising into the low 50s by the late weekend.

Snow light snow remains in the southern KC Metro, but looks to quickly move out of the area in the next hour or two. A MVFR ceilings has set up over the area that looks to remain through the afternoon. A second wave of winter weather will move towards the area from the southwest in the late morning and early afternoon. The higher snowfall rates look to stay south of the Missouri River which will limit IFR visibilities to only KIXD for TAF sites. A period of MVFR will effect KMCI and KMKC with this snow band, but it looks to remain mostly light with visibility in the 3-5SM range. This wave of winter weather looks to move through quickly which will allow visibility and ceilings to quickly become VFR in the afternoon, which will last through the rest of the period.

If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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 numerious 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.
