Well over the past 24 hours or so some interesting things have happened in the weather world. Yesterday Chicago finally had more than 1″ of snow in a calendar day (1.1″) which means that a record has been set for the latest 1″+ of snow in a winter season that goes back 128 years and also the longest stretch of consecutive days without at least 1″ of snow (335).
Then there is our storm, which is going to be weakening and zipping by rather quickly. Temperatures for most of the area will be above freezing so we’re looking at a rain event for KC, although the amounts are not looking as healthy as one would like to see. Areas towards NE MO though, will be cold enough initially to have a period of ice and as a result a Freezing rain Advisory has been issued for NE MO.
