School-cancelling weather possible once again

After five surprise days added to my Christmas break due to the Ozarks' last winter storm, another one could impact us again later this week.

"Low pressure moving from the southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley Wednesday night through Friday will bring the potential of a mix rain, freezing rain, and accumulating winter precipitation to southeast Kansas and southwest and central Missouri," the National Weather Service said in a Hazardous Weather Outlook issued today.

Aside from accumulating snow, ice is a concern due to the anticipated setup of this storm system.

"The upper level low is anticipated to kick into the plains mid week with warm Gulf moisture advecting into the Plains and Ozarks ahead of the low," says the NWS forecast discussion.

Check back for more updates as this system begins to rare up this week.
