Rain to change over to light snow Thursday


The rain moving across the metro will change over to light snow by late morning into the early afternoon.

This comes after quarter-sized hail fell across the metro early Thursday morning after a winter storm hit. The storm even knocked out power in several areas. 

KCTV5 chief meteorologist Chris Suchan says by mid-to-late morning, a rush of cold air and strong wind gusts will move into the region.

"Temperatures will plunge toward the mid-30s by midday to early afternoon, and this will create a rain-snow mix and even ending as a period of all wet snow from the Kansas City metro to Iowa," Suchan said.

At this time, there is little to no accumulation expected for the metro. However, areas further up Interstate 29 into northwest Missouri may see a coating to 1″ or 2″ of snow in far northwest Missouri and extreme northeast Kansas.

"Any mix or snow in the area would quickly lift north into Iowa, which keeps the chances for accumulating snow limited," Suchan said.

Winds will strengthen from the northwest, and a few gusts between 35–45 mph are possible.
