Commute Could Be Messy Today Due to Possible Snow, Ice, Sleet
Most of our listening area is under a Winter Weather Advisory from 4:00 AM CDT this morning through Tuesday morning at 1:00 AM CDT.
The National Weather Service says our area can expect anywhere from one to two inches of snow and a glaze of ice. Additionally, the National Weather Service says "Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute."
So when will the snow arrive? As of Sunday evening here's when the National Weather Service says the snow will be arriving:
- Warrensburg - Rain and snow, turning into all snow at 1:00 PM CDT.
- Sedalia - Rain and snow, turning into mostly snow between 4:00 PM -5:00 PM CDT, then turning back into a rain and snow mix.
- Boonville - Rain before noon, then a mix of rain and snow.
One of the interesting things to do is look at what some of our area television stations are predicting as far as snow fall. As of Sunday evening here's what they are saying:
KMBC TV is saying Lee's Summit and Warrensburg could see two and a half inches of snow. And Sedalia will see an inch and half of snow.
KSHB TV is saying "a dusting to three inches in the Kansas City area."
KCTV is saying the Warrensburg and Sedalia area will see two to three inches of snow.
KOMU-TV is saying the Sedalia and Warrensburg area will see nearly two inches of snow, Boonville will see an eighth of an inch of snow and Columbia a half of an inch of snow.
Based on the information I have from these television stations and the National Weather Service I think it's safe to say most of us will see one to three inches of snow today, with much of it falling after noon. Additionally, I'd expect the Lee's Summit and Warrensburg area to see more snow than Boonville and Columbia.
