CSW WEATHER: Unprecedented Late-Spring "Winter Weather Advisory" for KC- St. Joseph Areas

Unprecedented as in this hasn't happened before in Kansas City's 125 years of weather records.

Oh yeah- we've had ONE accumulating May snowfall- a little more than an inch on May 3- 1907- but there was no NWS or 'Winter Weather Advisories' issued then.

The NWS forecast is "one to three inches of snow" overnight for the Metro areas of KC and St. Joseph.

Although most of that accumulation will be on areas with natural cover- vehicles and other elevated outdoor items- there could be slick spots on bridges and overpasses during the Friday morning drive.

The cold and precip (not all snow by any means) should continue- off and on- through at least early Sunday.

It looks like late next week before temperatures rebound to "seasonable" averages of highs around 70 and lows around 50.
