Travel impacting Winter Weather tonight into Friday AM….WHERE IS IT? WHEN WILL IT START? WHEN WILL IT END?
Hi Weather Watchers?
Here are current radars…
Dodge City Radar:
The Dodge Radar shows freezing Precip… HOWEVER…It is NOT reaching the ground! The lower levels are not saturated…we can tell that by the dewpoints and relative humidities.
Let’s looks at current conditions:
Remember– the Red numbers are the current temps…the Green temps are the current Dewpoints.
The closer the two are the more moisture is present.
Here are a couple satellite images:
It shows we have a ways to go before we should see moisture falling in South Central KS….
Western KS is also saturating quicker… Snow/Graupel is being reported in Garden City.
The entire system is moving SW to NE as the evening continues the moisture will increase and rain, every some embedded thunder will continue to develop.
We will likely see freezing rain and sleet across South Central KS…
This is the area we think will see the GREATEST amount of ICING- EXPECT UP TO .25″ of Icing in the area circled.
Icing should begin between 7p-9p across the SW 1/2 of the State.
We will have to watch the total amount of Precip.
UNTREATED SURFACES AND ELEVATED ROADWAYS WILL BECOME SLICK & HAZARDOUS!!
Icing will turn to rain from the SW to NE. It should be ALL rain across the SW 1/2 of the State no later than NOON tomorrow….
PLEASE KEEP US POSTED ON WHAT IS OCCURRING IN YOUR AREA-Very important!!
Temps will slowly increase overnight….
