...SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION POSSIBLE SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY...

A FAIRLY INTENSE LOW WILL DEVELOP OVER THE FOUR CORNERS REGION
SATURDAY NIGHT, FURTHER STRENGTHENING AS IT MOVES INTO THE TEXAS
PANHANDLE SUNDAY. THIS LOW WILL INTERACT WITH PLENTIFUL LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE, SUPPORTING WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS
WEST CENTRAL, SOUTHWEST, AND SOUTH CENTRAL KANSAS. THERE WILL BE
VERY LITTLE IN THE WAY OF COLD AIR FOR THIS STORM TO INTERACT
WITH, THEREFORE MUCH OF THE PRECIPITATION WITH THIS STORM WILL
FALL AS RAIN, EVEN IN HIGHER ELEVATION AREAS NEAR THE COLORADO
BORDER.

NEVERTHELESS, SNOW IS STILL EXPECTED IN THE COLD SECTOR, MAINLY
AFTER MIDNIGHT SUNDAY NIGHT NEAR THE COLORADO BORDER AND MONDAY
MORNING OVER THE REMAINDER OF SOUTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL KANSAS.
IT IS STILL TOO EARLY TO DETERMINE THE MAGNITUDE OF THE SNOW
THREAT, HOWEVER LIGHT TO MODERATE ACCUMULATING SNOW WILL BE
POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF WESTERN KANSAS WHICH COULD CREATE SOME
TRAVEL ISSUES DURING THE DAY MONDAY.

PLEASE KEEP CHECKING BACK WITH THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN
DODGE CITY FOR THE LATEST FORECAST THINKING REGARDING THIS
UPCOMING STORM SYSTEM.
