KANSAS CITY 2018 BLIZZARD OPEN THREAD!!! WILL IT BE YET ANOTHER WEATHER NEWSIE BUST?!?!
Already we notice the local National Weather Service working to lower expectations . . .
"Some questions about the definition of a blizzard...it a common misconception that amount of snow is a criteria but, here is the definition by NWS standards... .A blizzard means that the following conditions are expected to prevail for a period of 3 hours or longer: Sustained wind or frequent gusts to 35 miles an hour or greater; & Considerable falling and/or blowing snow (i.e., reducing visibility frequently to less than ¼ mile)"
Important stuff for air travel and possibly providing more perspective on recent Kansas City weather newsie panic.
You decide . . .
