MD 0014 CONCERNING HEAVY SNOW FOR NORTHEAST KANSAS INTO SOUTHEAST NEBRASKA

Mesoscale Discussion 0014
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0927 AM CST Mon Jan 08 2024

Areas affected…Northeast Kansas into southeast Nebraska

Concerning…Heavy snow

Valid 081527Z – 081830Z

SUMMARY…Rain will transition to heavy snow across northeast Kansas
and vicinity late this morning into the afternoon.

DISCUSSION…Several observation sites across northeast Kansas have
switched from rain to snow in the last hour as the column cools from
increasing isentropic ascent across the region. Expect this to
continue for the remaining areas across northeast Kansas where rain
is still falling. This strong ascent will also lead to very heavy
snowfall rates in excess of 1 inch per hour. In addition, the
heavier snowfall rates will lift into southeast Nebraska by midday
with some snowfall rates approaching 2 inches per hour amid a deeper
DGZ and colder surface temperatures. Winds will increase to around
15 mph with gusts to 25 mph this afternoon which will lead to an
increase in blowing and drifting across the region.
