Record Snow And More Possibly On The Way

Frank Morris

This snowstorm was a record-breaker, dumping the most snow Kansas City has ever seen on a February 21st.  Kansas City got 9.2 inches at KCI, but some towns in the area saw even more snow than that.

Belton and Leawood both got 11.5 inches; Roeland Park totaled 12 inches, and Overland Park received the most, some 13 and a half inches. 

National Weather Service Meteorologist Jenni Leflin and colleagues are looking at the near-term weather and its not pretty.

"We've got another system moving into the region, Sunday night into Monday,” said Lefflin. “The track for that is still pretty uncertain. Some of the models are having trouble agreeing, but it does look like  we could have some significant snowfall across the area again.”

The current round snow is over for now. Leflin says blowing snow should not be much of a problem today with winds expected to average around 10 miles an hour.
