The National Weather Service has scheduled several webinars to discuss forecast detail pertaining to our approaching winter storm. The first offering will be at 3pm today.
Please remember to use our winter page https://www.weather.gov/mhx/winter
because it has some outstanding graphics, including the reasonable worse case scenario which is now more than 5" for part of our area. In addition, this page will have our official or most likely forecast, along with tables and graphics for various snowfall amounts. We highly recommend it. We plan to send our next PDF briefing out by 4 PM today, if not sooner.
One last resource to remember is our hourly weather graph: https://forecast.weather.gov/gridpoint.php?site=mhx&TypeDefault=graphical
You can click on the map, enter a lat lon, or select one of the preset cities. Remember you can turn on and off the variable you want. For example, this is an excellent resource for determining when surface temps will be near or below freezing.
