Mesoscale Discussion #2380- Heavy Snow (Kansas Affected)

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a mesoscale discussion concerning heavy snow for Kansas this evening. It appears that the most widespread blizzard conditions will be in Western Kansas, which is logical as sustained wind speeds are over 20 MPH at this time. Farther out east, the precipitation type will be becoming all snow as the cold air being pulled south is pulled into the system and producing snow. This means that the East Kansas area will have a very sharp cutoff for the biggest snow accumulations. As the system make its way to the northeast, these blizzard conditions should die down overnight as the precipitation continues to move northeast as well.
