Winter weather marches across Kansas

November 2, 2011

— A winter weather system is marching into Kansas, bringing the first significant snows of the season to western parts of the state.

The Kansas Department of Transportation's website indicated Wednesday morning that some sections of Interstate 70 were becoming snow-packed as the system moved across the plains. No road closures were reported

The National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings and winter weather advisories for western Kansas. Strong, gusty winds coupled with snow are expected to make driving conditions dangerous.

Forecasters are calling for as much as 5 inches of snow in some parts of Kansas, with some locations picking up larger amounts. Precipitation in central and eastern Kansas will begin as rain and mix with snow as the day progresses.

I hate it when people say that there is a "100% chance" of snow [or rain, or a tornado]. There can never be 100% certainty that ANY THING will happen. Anything right up to that percentage, okay.

100% chance of the weather changing off and on for a really long time. That is pretty certain I would think

0.66" in BC thus far. Better than nothing. 39 as of this post from a high of 59 this morning. Wind is howling. No ducks from hunting at Clinton lake today. Passed on the usual resident wood ducks. It was a wonderful day to be free and out. I'll take a listening walk & see (hear) what migrants are passing overhead here in a bit.
