Snow is developing early this morning
This is a special weather statement! Snow is developing and growing steadily to our west. It is now down to NOWCASTING. We will keep you updated this morning as the NBC Action Weather team tracks this developing snow event. It still looks like about one inch or less. There is still some potential for a little more than one inch as well. It is cold and the ratio could be 15 or 20 to 1.

Above, you can see the rapid development of the snow to our west. Exciting for snow lovers. Yes, this won't be a big storm system. It is still an interesting weather day!

Thanks for the response!!! Grading papers this morning but was just getting ready to Blog some current observations when you updated-we have clouded up here and our temps. are rising pretty quickly. I did take a peak at the RUC on the 9Z data (about 30 minuets ago) and noticed that it brings up about .05 of precip. here this afternoon-man, if we can squeeze out 2 inches from this it will be great!!! I also notice there is a broader band of snow moving into Wichita-this will be fun to watch for sure!!!! Looks like I will be showing my students cold air plunges as well as radar today!!!! Fun times!!!

The radar echoes continue to increase. When a storm is approaching, even this weak storm, it is always a good sign to see everthing developing as expected. Now, we can look to see if it will be more or less than we expected. With the expectations so low it won't take much for this to produce a bit more than one inch.

My three year old can't wait for the snow to show up. Maybe it'll be here by 9:30 am. Hoping for 2 inches up in kc north.
Don't get your hopes too high, lesser amounts could fall up north again.
Sorry bout that,

Does it look like it's gonna snow very long period of time, (thru all night) Thanks Anne
Maybe 6 or 8 hours. If it starts this morning, it'll probably be out of here this evening.

Pretty heavy snow in Raymore at 1242p with about a 1/2 inch accumulated at this time. Are we expecting heavier amounts down south?
