A fast moving storm system strengthened during the day as an area of low pressure sped from southeast Kansas through central Missouri. A band of wet snow formed far to the northwest of the track of the low pressure leaving behind a 1 to 2 inch swath of slush about 90 miles wide from just northeast of St Joseph to Grant City and Bethany. A couple of isolated 3 inch snow amounts were reported in Cameron and Kingston where a narrow band of heavy snow fell for 1 to 2 hours. Since temperatures were above freezing during the entire event the snow quickly melted and left area roads mainly wet by early evening. Locations east of a Kansas City to Kirksville line received rain with brief pockets of light snow mixed in as temperatures stubbornly remained in the mid to upper 30s. By late afternoon temperatures cooled just enough to allow for a brief change over to snow as far south as the Kansas City area and points along the Missouri River.
