Kansas City To Receive Snow Today, This Weekend

The Kansas City metro has already been rocked by two major snowstorms this year, and it appears that the area will be receiving one final snow fall before spring. The KC metro is expected to receive up to three inches of snow today, with more snow coming this weekend.

Today’s snowfall is expected to start mid-morning and end by the late afternoon. Most snow will fall south of a line from Maryville to Sedalia, with little accumulation north and east of that area. The Kansas City area is expected to receive between one to two inches, while cities to the south such as Gardner, Paola, Pleasanton and Clinton will receive two to three inches. There is also a chance that a bit more snow and freezing rain could hit the metro this evening.

The biggest concern is this weekend, when the KC metro may receive upwards of six inches of snow. Meteorologists are expecting freezing rain mixed with snow to start falling from morning to early afternoon on Saturday, with heavier snowfall hitting Saturday night.

After some mild winters over the past couple of years, Kansas City has been hit hard with snow over the past couple of months. While this weekend’s storm won’t be as severe as the previous two, there will likely still be several accidents and closed roads. Kansas City will be hosting several NCAA tournament games this weekend, and the downtown is expected to be very crowded. The hazardous weather conditions and large crowds could make transportation around the metro very difficult this weekend. Kansas City residents heading downtown for the NCAA tournament games need to prepare for difficulty navigating around the metro.

Winter Storm Puts Bullseye on Kansas City

OK, Kansas Citians, It's time to panic! The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Kansas City and the surrounding areas. Snow is forming to our west, and Kansas City seems to be in the cross hairs of a formidable Snow event. Up to 9" can be expected in parts of the area, but 6-7 is likely for most of the metro. The consensus of reports seems to put heavier snowfall amounts to the northern part of the area. Snow storms are somewhat hard to predict, so really only time will tell.

With the storm beginning right before the evening rush and continuing through the morning rush on Thursday, commuters need to be prepared for the chaos that ensues with every snowfall in Kansas City. Also, make sure that you run to the grocery store - buy all the ice melt, bottled water (in my wife's case, Pelligrino), and canned goods you can fit in your vehicles and drive home and STAY THERE!

Hopefully you are not planning on watching anything on CBS tonight as Katie Horner will be enjoying the sound of her voice ad nausium. Actually, with the weak ass lineup CBS has on Wednesday's - Katie Horner prattling on about snowfall amounts in Maryville might be better.
