Snowfall Map for December 23-24, 2008
An upper level storm system, combined with a frontal boundary, produced light snowfall across eastern Kansas and northern Missouri during the overnight and early morning hours of December 23rd-24th. The heaviest stripe of snow fell in a corridor from Kansas City to Unionville, though sufficient dry air above the surface worked into the system to limit overall snowfall totals to 1-2 inches (with a few localized higher amounts). Further south towards central Missouri, temperatures remained above freezing long enough to allow for precipitation to fall mostly as just rain. Many areas saw brief periods of light freezing rain and freezing drizzle combined with the snowfall to produce dangerous road condtions for the early morning drive.
