Precipitation begins in Lawrence; Heaviest expected to stay north of I-70

December 6, 2009


A mix of rain and snow started falling in Lawrence at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday as temperatures lingered in the mid-30s.

But according to 6News meteorologist Dave Postel, that precipitation could taper off before temperatures start to drop in earnest overnight Sunday.

"I think the precipitation will end by midnight or sooner and we won't see any accumulation," Postel said. "It will turn colder after the precipitation stops."

Postel said neighboring counties would be more likely than Douglas County to see winter weather overnight. The dividing line could fall near Interstate 70 north of Lawrence, with counties such as Jefferson and Jackson receiving more precipitation than Douglas or Franklin.

"It will be a close call along I-70," Postel said. "South of I-70 you might not see a lot."

Postel is the same guy who called for 18" of snow last April. We're better off packing a speedo and beach towel...
