Mesoscale Discussion 0002
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0947 AM CST Fri Jan 05 2024

Areas affected...Central Kansas

Concerning...Heavy snow 

Valid 051547Z - 051845Z

SUMMARY...Heavy snow with rates up to 1 inch per hour are expected
through early afternoon.

DISCUSSION...A band of heavy snow is lifting north across central
Kansas this morning to the north of a surface low currently across
northwest Oklahoma. This snow band is primarily triggered by
warm-air advection centered around 850mb. A 25 to 30 knot low-level
jet is currently present across northern Oklahoma and southeast
Kansas, per RAP mesoanalysis. However, these winds are expected to
weaken by mid afternoon as the 850mb height gradient relaxes across
Oklahoma due to a deepening cyclone near the Gulf Coast. Therefore,
expect a few more hours of moderate to heavy intensity snow before
this band begins to weaken by early afternoon.
