Kansas City's Weather: Back In The Saddle Again

This Saturday evening - looking at both a Flood Watch and a Snow Advisory in effect for our Kosmic City - I drift back to a warm- sunny Thursday morning sunning in beach chairs with Ms. Lady Di Rittenhouse on the Texas Gulf shore.

Right now- those parts of the Missouri and extreme eastern Kansas portions of the MetroRegion south of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers are under a Flood Watch for possible rainfalls of up to 2-inches for the next 10-12 hours or so.

Current Doppler weather radar image from NWS Topeka. General movement is north-northeast at 35 m.p.h..

This Flood Watch includes the K.C. Metro.

Then- the weather turns decidely wintry with a Snow and Blowing Snow Advisory Sunday for the Metro. There's been the mention by the local NWS office of near-whiteout conditions during heavier snows and winds.

That's the situation in the K.C. MetroRegion at this hour- updates here as needed.

Four Shot In Lawrence-KS Overnight

The first call came in just before 3am at the Last Call- that controversial Larryville bar at 729 New Hampshire.

Two victims were reported here- one shot in a leg- but only one victim was taken to the hospital from here.

Within minutes- another victim arrived at a convenience store in the 4800 block of West 6th Street- then it was said yet another victim was enroute to the Lawrence hospital by a private vehicle.

One person was flown to an unknown trauma center by medical helicopter.

Police have no details yet as of this posting as to the victims' conditions nor any possible suspects.
