Another quick update......
The GFS has a faster solution. If it is correct the chance of snow is much slimmer and mainly across extreme northwest Missouri. I favor this solution at this moment. Look below on my thoughts after looking at the NAM. The GFS has been more reliable so I lean in its direction. We still have the potential for severe weather, and if the GFS is correct the storm is a bit faster and could affect us during the evening.

I have noticed that the winds are strong from the East every time a storm system is about to move in. Is this normal or is it just a coincidence that the few times I have observed wind direction it was happening? If this is normal, why does it happen?
When there is a warm front to your south then you usually have east winds. And the wind will be blowing towards low pressure. There is a strong low forming. So, as a rule when you have east winds with the pressure falling then you know a storm is developing.

What are you thinking as far as amount of snow for extreme NWMO right now? Our local forecast is saying 5-6 inches total as of 6 a.m. this morning. Thanks.
If the NAM is right then 6 inches. If the GFS is right then 1 inch. I don't have a feeling for it at this moment.

Last blog before I go. I think I will be watching the severe threat further south and along the dryline. I should be right there in the mix. I will bring my camera.
Have a safe trip! And let us know how it goes.

SPC has put out a moderate risk of severe weather across parts of Missouri. Not sure how close it comes to KC, but I wanted to know your opinion on this. thanks.
I think it something we have to watch. This storm is stronger than the weekend storm. Right now, Hail is the main threat.

What are your thoughts on severe weather in the northland? If we do get any, I was wondering what time it would probably occur. I was planning to go to the spotters meeting in Blue Springs tonight but didn't want to get caught out in it.
Thunderstorms won't likely fire until after 9pm. I think you should be safe for the spotters meeting in Blue Springs.

Is the viewing area included in this moderate severe threat that noaa just put out?
It looks likes Lake of the Ozarks or maybe Marshall would be the closest cities in the moderate risk area.
