Welcome to a new week! Our focus in this morning’s outlook is going to be on the twin winter storms that will impact the state through the next 48 hours.
We are still expecting large amounts of snow, 9 to as much as 15 inches, along and north of the Interstate 70 corridor in northern Kansas. Our forecast from 4 pm Sunday is below:
This has the potential to be a high-impact storm for areas of north-central Kansas, especially considering that the snow will be falling at 1-2 inches per hour, and being driven on winds of 15-30 mph, which could create near whiteout conditions.
Here is the HRRR model’s interpretation of what could happen today:
If you’re headed out, make sure you have a winter survival kit with you and alternate plans in case the weather becomes too bad for travel.
After today, attention turns to the third system in the wave train, which will move through tomorrow afternoon into Wednesday midday. With this system, we expect a general 1-3 inches of snow to fall, but for some locations, it will bring insult to injury after the snow they get today.
Here is the HRRR model’s interpretation of what could happen with that storm:
As always, stay with us for updates on the storms as they move through the area.
