Kansas City area drivers have had 8 months—to the day—to forget what it’s like to drive through 12 inches of snow falling in a single day. That February 21, mammoth fall was followed by an identical one four days later.
So, as we gear up for winter again, how ready are the metro Kansas City highway departments for 2013?
The National Weather Service has cut its forecast for snow accumulation to one or two inches--about half of what it was earlier. A winter weather advisory remains in effect through Wednesday morning. Some school districts in outlying areas have cancelled classes.
Daily highs have hovered at or near the 100 degree mark for more than a week. The sweaty days are expected will continue through the weekend. The heat can be dangerous, but many people are finding ways to avoid the high temperatures.
