Skew-T Meteorologist in Kansas City

Blizzard

A strong winter storm Sunday brought many hours of blizzard conditions to Kansas City and about half a foot of snow, the second highest one day day November total. Roads have gradually improved though many areas have melted and refrozen with chilly overnight temperatures. Many flights were canceled at nearby Kansas City International and I lost power at the house for about an hour, luckily with the gas fireplace already lit.

A mid-afternoon KCI observation shows the storm had quite a punch:
