Quick Burst of Snow over Southwest Kansas / Northwest Oklahoma Today...

A swath of light to moderate snow is setting up from the Oklahoma panhandle on up into southwest and northcentral Kansas this morning:

This is taking place as a strong cold front moves Southeast across the region.  Light snow will spread Eastward into southcentral and northeast Kansas back into northwestern Oklahoma later this morning and into this afternoon as the temperature falls behind the cold front.

The last full run of the experimental, high resolution HRRR computer forecast model is calling for widespread 1-2 inch snows, with localized amounts of 3-6 inches in some areas:

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for most of this region today.  Use caution if you must travel across the area.  Gusty winds will also create blowing snow which will further reduce the visibility at times.
