November Goes out in Style!! (12/1/2004)

By: Andy Kleinsasser/Robb Lawson

Second snow storm of the season strikes the region as November was on its way out.

A slow moving but persistent upper level low pressure system tracked out of the Rockies and into the plains on Sunday November 28. A band of snow first formed over extreme Northern Kansas and Southern Nebraska during the afternoon hours Sunday. By Sunday night this band of snow finally made its way into Central Kansas. Image 1 is a radar image from about 2 am Sunday night.

This weather system was unique in that it was slow moving and thus affected Kansas for quite a while. Light snow occurred off and on across Central and South Central Kansas on Monday and finally made it to Southeast Kansas by Tuesday morning. Image 2 is a map of snowfall from Sunday night (Nov. 28th) through Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 30th). Image 3 is a visible satellite image taken on Tuesday afternoon. The white areas indicate areas of more significant snow cover.
