CSW Weather: Snow Chances Increase Early in Week Before Christmas

As mentioned here at CSW last Tuesday- a storm system is forecast to produce more widespread precipitation across the American Central States early this upcoming week...


Shown is a snow probability forecast map by a National Weather Service (NWS) forecast office issued early Saturday morning for the period from Monday morning December 19 through Tuesday morning December 20.

The map shows upgrading chances or probabilities of at least four inches of snowfall in the colored areas: red is an at least 70% chance- green at least 40% and blue at least a 10% chance of a 4-inch snowfall.


Metro Kansas City is in the green or "moderate" probability of getting our first significant snowfall- but probably not beginning until  Tuesday evening and lasting into Wednesday morning.


CSW will be covering the event as it approaches and arrives Monday.
