| Oh my.....A surprise, but look at last nights blog »
Good Friday evening,
This snow will last two or three hours. One to a quick two inches could fall and cause major travel problems. There is a good chance of another band of snow after midnight.
Thank you for all of your reports. Please be careful this evening.

Gary and Team:
With regards to the 2nd band of snow thats expected tonight, is there any accumulating snowfall expected from that portion of the storm?
Thanks for keeping us up to date. We're around 1 inch of snowfall (fresh) on the ground here in Lawrence.
Another inch or so is possible overnight.

I don't recall any station forecasted 2-3 inches of snow today... is it really such a big surprise?
Yes it is a surprise, but not that big of one. We did talk about it in last nights blog. If the system goes a bit further west watch out. Well, it has gone a bit further west.

Gary, I just drove from work in Topeka to home in Lawrence. I avoided a six car pile-up just in front of me on I-70. The roads are extremely slick with no visibility.
This is coming at the worst time....evening rush hour.

You are the only station that starting talking about this storm for a few days. If I remember you had a 60% chance Tuesday. Last night you were the only one saying to watch out and it was possible. Everyone else just had flurries.
You have proved again why you guys are the best. That gut instinct worked out to perfection this time. Way to Go!!!!
Thanks! Now call some of these people.

Gary-I've been bragging on you and your weather team all afternoon-people are surprised about the snow, they didn't know this was going to happen, but I did because I watched NBC. I told them they need to watch Gary, Brett and Jeremy, then they would know. Good Job once again, guys!!

Just to help your feelings... I am new to MO this year, up from FL. I look at weather from several stations, but yours seems to be the most accurate of all. I like the way you give ALL the possibilities. Thanks for doing a good job.
PS Glad to know some like this weather... it was kinda fun and interesting at first, but its really getting old. Any chance of getting Spring soon?
