Good morning Weather Watchers!

Here is the latest threat map for the area…most of the moisture associated with this STRONG STORM will be along and East of the US75 Corridor- Topeka KS to Independence KS and East.

  
Here is the Regional threat map:

  
Simulated Radar:

  
If you are traveling, STRONG NW WINDS will be your biggest headache, with up to 60mph gusts, as well as BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ALONG I-70 in Northwest KS-not expecting lots of accumulation but WHITE OUT CONDITIONS are LIKELY.

As fast as the system develops- it quickly moves out…

  
Models show an active pattern over the next 10 days, maybe longer.

Here is the next system which is forecast further South giving Kansas chances of moisture.

   
 

If you have questions- please ask.

We are encouraged with what we are seeing model wise. This portion of the cycle WILL return several times in the next several months – and will likely be a SIGNIFICANT weather maker each time it returns. It will be interesting to watch…

We still believe Jan-Feb-Mar as our Winter (colder) months. Let’s see what happens…..

Have a good day…
