Winter Storm Watch Upgraded to Blizzard Watch in Northern Central States
The "Blizzard Watch" issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) includes eastern and southeastern Nebraska as well as a large part of Iowa (see map).
The blizzard watch does not go in effect until Monday afternoon and evening- and will be in effect through Tuesday- so travel to areas around Lincoln or Omaha Nebraska- and Des Moines Iowa should not be affected until after noon tomorrow (Monday).
As I stated on yesterday's weather post- Metro Kansas City should MISS the really nasty winter stuff.
The center of this new storm should go virtually over the Metro- so we'll be between the cold and warm sectors of the storm.
The Kansas City area will most likely start off as rain- changing to a light freezing mix and/or snow later Tuesday.
Metro K.C. should not get more than an inch or two of snow at most it appears right now.
I'll update this situation if any significant change appears on the weather charts.
