Severe Weather Guide & Wx Update
I hope everyone is enjoying their St. Patrick's Day. If you head out tonight to celebrate, make sure to be safe!
Don't forget the NBC Action Weather Plus Severe Weather Insert is available in the Sunday, March 18 edition of the Kansas City Star. We have also been working on our Severe Weather TV Special, which will air at 7pm this upcoming Wednesday. Make sure your friends and family check it out!
This morning's rain, snow, and sleet moved through the area between 4am-9am. We had been talking about this for a few days now. Most of our viewing area missed out on snow accumulation, but just east of here there was a few tenths to about 3" of snow. Columbia, MO reported 1.8" of snow today. Temperatures were also varied greatly from east to west. Chillicothe saw a high near 40, while Emporia, KS topped out near 70. The dividing line of the chilly and somewhat mild air basically divided the metro area. Our WeatherNow temps range from 45 in Liberty, MO to 55 in Overland Park, KS as of 4pm.
The weather should be a little more strightforeward for Sunday. A general south wind takes over for Sunday and will help to push highs in the 60s across the region. A front nearing the area will give us a chance of a few showers and storms by Sunday Night and early Monday morning. Overall next week looks very active with several good chances of showers and thunderstorms. In fact, the latest 12Z GFS is trying to keep the threat of rain around all the way into Friday. This will depend on how fast or slow the upper low moves through the region. There's no way to pinpoint severe weather this far out, so it is something we will monitor as the week progresses and keep everyone informed.
Make sure to tune into NBC Action News at 5 & 10pm this weekend for the latest weather updates!

Let us know if you finally found it. It is not easy to find.
