A massive winter storm promises to dump up to 18 inches of snow – or more – on Kansas.
The biggest threat of heavy snow lies in parts of Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri, with the possibility of whiteout conditions in some places, said CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller.
The National Weather Service was predicting as much as 18 inches of snow in Kansas, while parts of Nebraska could see more than a foot of snow. Drifts could make some roads impassable.
Meanwhile, Chicago could receive its largest single snowfall of the year — 4 inches, said Miller. The city usually gets up to 4 feet of snow a year. So far this year, only about a foot has fallen, he said.
Snowy, dangerously icy conditions are also possible in parts of northern Arkansas and southern Missouri, Miller added.
Tuesday night, the same storm forced closure of stretches of highway northeast of Los Angeles, stranding some motorists until highway crews and police were able to battle through the snow and clear the backlog.
“The snow came in hard and heavy,” said Officer Ed Smith of the California Highway Patrol.
In all, parts of 18 states were under some form of watch or warning on Wednesday related to the storm.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry continues his prattling about global warming.
I wonder why it is that people like to retire in warmer climates? Do you suppose that “global warming” isn’t quite as bad as some people would have you think?
