Heavy Snow Warning.....8 PM update
The radar trend is looking like a long duration heavy snow event just north of Kansas City. I still think this area will drift and develop south overnight. But for now it appears 6 to 10 inches will fall in some spots.
Snow is increasing over central Kansas. This is still tricky as new areas of snow will be likely developing south and west later on tonight.
The new NAM model has just come out. I like the radar trends and it looks like 4 to 8 inch amounts will be possible by noon Tuesday. This has a lot of potential and with the radar trends this evening I am confident that we will end up with heavy snow for hours in some spots. There will be bands of heavier snow. So, many areas could still end up with 3 or 4 inches and others closer to 8 inches or more.

Thank you so much for the continuous updates. It is so nice to have weather forecasters that care so much about the weather that they share it with their viewers on a constant basis. I live in Eudora and hope that the heavy snow makes it here. It is just starting to sleet here mixing with some snow flakes. Once again thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication. For snow lovers like myself it is fun to follow.

Gary it is sleeting in Topeka right now. I am hearing from some sources the heavy snow warning may be extended south and westward. So I take it the low and storm is forming right now and it is south of where it was supposed to be. This reminds me of a storm back in February 1982 in Wichita where all of a sudden they posted a winter storm warning out of no where and we ended up with 9 inches. Keep watching that radar.

Will the delay of the rain changing to snow affect the final snow totals or will it just snow longer here in Warrensburg? I want snow!! :)
Posted by: Samantha at February 12, 2007 7:55 PM
snow starting to mix in at 68th and north oak
Posted by: kurt at February 12, 2007 7:57 PM

What would be a good time to drive the roads in the Cleveland MO area to determine if we should have school?
Posted by: Paul at February 12, 2007 8:00 PM
It's snowing at 152HWY and N. Indiana in the northland! Looks like it is coming down at a pretty good rate too. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Posted by: Julie at February 12, 2007 8:04 PM
I hear sleet bouncing off windows in OP!
Posted by: CJ at February 12, 2007 8:04 PM
How does the morning commute to Topeka look from Baldwin City? About 5 minutes ago (8:00pm) it was 35 degrees in Baldwin City. Please keep us updated. Much appreciated.
Posted by: Ryan at February 12, 2007 8:04 PM
Do you have any idea what time you expect the snow to stop tomorrow?
Posted by: Rebekah at February 12, 2007 8:05 PM
We have sleet falling with rain in south Blue Springs! Sleet is sticking on walk.
Posted by: Josh K at February 12, 2007 8:07 PM
wow so the data doesnt stay the same this close so some people in the area will wind up with 8 inches and others with 3 so anywere from kc north and east could get hammered still
Posted by: jacob wellington at February 12, 2007 8:09 PM
Since the new NAM model suggests 4-8", do you think that KC Metro will be included in the heavy snow warning?

Nick--Enjoying the snow????
Posted by: Brian at February 12, 2007 8:15 PM
I'd be happy with just a snowflake in Roeland Park, KS! Rain, rain, very brief sleet, rain...

Posted by: Donald Schuler at February 12, 2007 8:20 PM
SNOWING in Independence at 815.
Posted by: Andy at February 12, 2007 8:21 PM
Does it look like us down south could get in on the 4 or more inches of snow.
Posted by: Daniel at February 12, 2007 8:21 PM
Is it just too difficult to guesstimate which areas could receive the heaviest snowfall? I know you've been leaning towards north of KC but with the newest info, what does south KC, west KC, and east KC look like? I'll be watching at 10pm to hear all the latest!

Gary and team,
At 8:20 we are sleeting in Blue Springs, and now snow mixing in. This on the south edge of Blue Springs. Sleet is coming down moderately and wind picking up. This is really intensifying quickly as we go through the evening. You can hear the sleet on the roof, bring on the snow, enough ice.
Posted by: Keith at February 12, 2007 8:22 PM
Big flakes, snow starting to stick on grassy surfaces! 8:15 I-29&64th street
Posted by: Rick at February 12, 2007 8:22 PM
What's your prediction down around the Lee's Summit area??
Posted by: Jenny at February 12, 2007 8:22 PM
It began mixing with sleet and snow here in the Shoal Creek area of KC around 7 p.m. Hope we get lots of snow.
Posted by: Matt P at February 12, 2007 8:24 PM
The rain has transitioned to a heavy sleet/sonw mixture in Blue Springs as of 8:08
Posted by: Matt Maisch at February 12, 2007 8:24 PM

Posted by: zack at February 12, 2007 8:24 PM
Coming down Very Hard in Atchison. The satellite is out and visiblity is very low.
Posted by: JC at February 12, 2007 8:26 PM
Hello Gary, I know you're swamped with comments but could you PLEASE TRY to answer this one?? If the snow has been increasing that should mean higher snowfall totals right? Right. I can see you guys udateing the Wyandotte area to atleast 4-7 inches of snow. THATS ONLY WHAT I SEE. You may not. I do. I also see the drifting like you said.I do think--know-- it will drift up to a foot or even more in spots. If I was a Bus Driver, I wouldn't want to drive in that. I do see massive school closings. Do you? I too am keeping a watch out for this. I may not have the tools you guys have but, I think that the snow will increase FURTHER YET and even more snowfall amounts and school closings. Has the Upper Low formed? If so,I willhave and update later. PLEASE try to answer this. Its sleeting here in Wyandotte near Piper.
Posted by: Alden at February 12, 2007 8:26 PM
Gary and the team:
Good evening to all of you!!! How are you all holding up-what an incredible fascinating day!!! We are in the process of changing over-have mostly sleet and snow now temp. slowly falling to near 32-getting close!!!!!
One of the great things is that the surface low is still in Texas and the 0z NAM-man-just man-somewhere in this area is going to hit the jack pot!!!!!! As they would say on Yugio: It's Go Time!!!!! Just changed to all snow!!!!
Thanks again for reading and updating-I hope you all can get some rest tonight-I'm sure I'll stay up watching so I may bother you again later!!!
Bill in Lawrence

Finally a snow event this year for north of the river. Well at least when we got more than anyone. Let it snow! Let it snow!
Posted by: ShawnP at February 12, 2007 8:45 PM
8:47 and it just started snowing at 67th and Ward Parkway. Pretty heavy flakes. Could this mean that the change over is sooner than expected and the heavier snow could be further south?
Posted by: Joe at February 12, 2007 8:48 PM
We are really getting slamed now, and the radar echo's are starting to take on that "snow" texture if you know what I mean.
Nick (VERY HAPPY) in St. Joe.:)
Posted by: Nick Rau at February 12, 2007 8:50 PM
It has pretty much changed to all snow in Blue Springs... Heavy Snow at that. The ground and street is already white. Huge flakes falling... very windy!
Posted by: Brian Kirk at February 12, 2007 8:52 PM
It's snowing in Western KCK near the Legends since 8:30. Large wet flakes at this point.
Posted by: Paula R at February 12, 2007 8:56 PM
I just noticed humungous flakes (8:50pm). It is already starting to accumulate and accumulate fast. I live in Olathe. How long do you think it will keep doing this? Also, how much snow do you think we will get in North Olathe.
Thanks, Jack L.
Posted by: Jack L. at February 12, 2007 8:57 PM

Snowing heavily in PV- Has been for about 30 min. Looks like almost 1" already. If it snows at this rate all night.... wouldn't we end up with about 10 in?
Posted by: Patrick at February 12, 2007 9:16 PM
