CSW Weather: Frost- Freeze Likely Over Much of Kansas City MetroRegion
As the rain and clouds moves out of the area this Tuesday morning- clearing skies and lightening winds will produce the fall season's first widespread frost and freeze Wednesday and particularly Thursday mornings.
National Weather Service (NWS) offices throughout the Central States have issued anything from "Frost Advisories" to "Freeze Watches" and "Warnings" in their forecast areas.
Only areas immediately spared from the season's coldest temperatures will be eastern Missouri through southern Arkansas- those areas will feel the cool Thursday into Friday mornings.
Rainfall-wise- once again most of us in Metro Kansas City saw little to virtually no rain.
The heaviest (?) amounts are shown on the accompanying Johnson County STORMWATCH Metro map- less than a quarter-inch fell anywhere since early Monday morning.
As we undergo a warm-up in temperatures by the weekend- our next chance for any measurable precipitation will come again Sunday- and that chance will only be for small rainfall amounts.
