Factors That Might Impact Snow Totals

After southern KELOLAND has been enjoying days with highs in the 50s and 60s, it's time for winter weather to return with a lot of wind and the potential for a lot of snow.

There are many factors that go into how much snow we will receive.  When looking at one particular point on a map, I've seen models vary from a couple of inches to over a foot at the same location.  Throw in other factors as to when the rain switches to snow, how much moisture is in the storm, and thunderstorms that can steal some of the moisture, and I'll lose even more hair!

This is such a vigorous storm system that a severe weather outbreak is likely from southern Iowa to the Gulf Coast.  If these storms blossom, they could cut-off our moisture supply for KELOLAND and give us lesser amounts than the ones in the forecast.

It's a messy forecast indeed, but that's our job.  We'll see how we did on this one by Sunday morning.  Stay safe.
