Will Kansas City get most of its Winter snow in the next week? That’s possible say some forecasters.
You wouldn’t think that possible with temps expected to reach the low 60s today. Car washes are full, folks are setting out annuals and other signs of spring are popping up all around.
But starting Friday, and then again on Sunday, the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill says there are good chances for the white stuff with accumulation likely possible. This comes after record lows were already recorded this week at Kansas City International Airport.
Temperatures dropped to 17 degrees at KCI Wednesday morning, breaking the record of 20 degrees for April 4 set in 1920.
Friday sees the return of winter weather, as the day likely will start out rainy and then change over to a rain/snow mix or completely snow by Friday evening. Highs Friday will be in the 30s and then dip into the 20s that night, according to the National Weather Service.
While Saturday will be mostly sunny, temperatures will remain in the upper 30s.
Snow supposedly returns on Sunday morning and then changes over to a rain and snow mix. But, if temps remain below freezing, we could easily see several inches of accumulation.
Just several years ago Kansas City received four inches of snow on May 4 which caused the cancellation of a Royals game.
