« A windy day and LUNAR ECLIPSE! |
| February 28th Severe Weather Outbreak »
Good late evening everyone,
Nick, one of our St. Joseph bloggers, describes the next hour or two as a "microblizzard". I will have to agree. It is going to snow and heavily for a about 30 minutes. Hopefully you will be up to experience this as it is accompanied by 50 mph winds or stronger. This is a wave rotating around the same storm that brought us the severe weather outbreak Wednesday night. Expect 1/4" of snow, or just blowing snow as this band moves through.
Below is the latest radar showing the band of snow coming in. This is along the Arctic front that developed during the day across Nebraska. What a week we have had.

Have a great weekend.

What time do you think it will hit the Lakewod area? (Northern Lee's Summit)
I would say around 12:40 AM or so.

That was cool snow was blowing all over the place! It was worth staying up for!
Any more snow tonight, looks like something up north, Thanks
The snow didn't last long or amount to much...but it did look like a mini blizzard for a short time.

My interenet service was out for about 48 hours so I did not have a chance to look at anything weather related!!!! Maybe I should do that more often as I woke up to a dusting with some snow still blowing around!!!! Very nice winter morning outside this morning!!!! I am enjoying it as this may be the last true winter hurah???? Have a great day!!!!

Well, I think we got the last tiny snow of the season.I have a few light flurries. But nothing is on the ground.Is the wind supposed to die down this afternoon?
Winds will ease up this evening and tonight...but not quite go calm. Tomorrow winds will likely be over 10mph in the afternoon.

It's fairly white up here now in Shoal Creek. We had some pretty good spurts of snow.
Will we be able to see the lunar eclipse now? Will it clear up?
Also, enjoy your much-deserved days off.
Look for the moon as soon as it is visible this evening around sunset. We only get to see a partial eclipse in this part of the world...but is still worth checking out!

Thanks for the snow report. I have a cool timelapse of the snow to show at 5pm...check it out!

So far the severe weather season has been active and very early! Already 4 tornadoes in the viewing area just in February.
Gary's spring forecast is coming out soon. He'll have the details on how active the severe weather season will be...so look for that very soon.
