Monday System Slowing Down………Will Continually Monitor Track, As Significant Snow Will Be Just Northwest of Our AreaFebruary 22nd, 2013 at 10:25 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Monday system continues to slow down per trends.
In terms of timing, it appears Monday may be largely dry with no rain until evening-night, followed by snow showers by late, late Monday night-Tuesday. 1″ or less of accumulation looks good right now.
If it does track farther south, it would mean the rain could become more of a snow event. It is close with significant snowfall likely in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa & in northern Illinois with anywhere from 6-12″. I looks like hard-hit Kansas City could be a bulls-eye for very heavy snowfall from this system. A shift in the track & that heavy snow band could easily move southeastward.
We will watch.
I prefer rain, then snow showers, however & will keep that wording for this forecast period pending additional data. Stay tuned throughout the weekend as each run of new data is analyzed for any shifts in this storm’s track.
It is High School Sectional basketball time so it has to snow, right?! Seems to always snow then or some big storm pass through.
Still appears overall upper troughiness will create windy conditions with lots of clouds & passing snow showers later next week-right up to March 8.
