CSW WEATHER: Snow Has Begun in Metro Kansas City- Wrecks Galore

A band of light to moderate snow is moving through Metro Kansas City at this time.


A National Weather Service (NWS) "Winter Weather Advisory" remains in effect for the Metro- as well as the eastern tier of Kansas counties along the Missouri border eastward across much of the northern half of the Show Me State.




Within the past 30 minutes prior to this post time- numerous vehicle crashes (13) have been reported from the Kansas side into the Missouri Northland.


Many of these crashes have been on Interstate highways- particularily I-35 from Downtown Kansas City south toward Gardner KS..


Thus far- no reports of serious injuries.




Please SLOW DOWN as elevated roadways and bridges are icing up first as temperatures have dropped into the upper 20's- heading toward a morning low near 20.




Watch the video- supplied by the Traffic Division in Overland Park from our last light dusting of snow in December.



You can see for yourself- many of the crashes shown in these traffic camera video clips were due to motorists simply going too fast and not anticipating intersections in advance.

Light snow here way less than half an inch but a lot of wind.
