CSW Weather: NWS Watches Already Issued for Dangerous Winter Storm Threat

Not to scare anybody with weather like some K.C. media-types tend to do- but I do NOT like ICE...

The National Weather Service (NWS) forecast office in Pleasant Hill- as well as other regional NWS offices- have issued Winter Storm Watches for Metro and (will eventually include all of) the Kansas City MetroRegion starting tomorrow (Sunday) night.

These WSW's also include other areas in our Central States.

The precipitation appears to be starting out as dangerous freezing drizzle- and/or freezing rain.

Amounts as of yet aren't forecast to be that great- only about "a tenth of an inch-" but it doesn't take much to create a glaze on roads and such...

The comes the snow- and it appears to be another heavy snowfall.

Early forecasts around the Metro and MetroRegion are anywhere from 6 to as much as a FOOT of snow by Wednesday morning- when these WSW's are set to expire.

I'll keep you updated here at CSW and please- help me pray for a blown forecast.

Yes, no ice. Would rather have a foot of snow than ice.

But still, my response to the forecasts was on the order of "Oh for crying out loud." Especially concerning Tuesday since finally there was a mayoral forum that I could attend! :-P
