Clouds and Snow

What a "yucko" day yesterday. Yes, "yucko" is a meteorological term. (kidding) Lots of clouds and rain yesterday.

It could have been worse as some areas of Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana saw snow. Some locations in southwest Missouri and southeast Kansas saw upwards of 8"-12" of snow.

You can see where the snow fell on a visible satellite image. The below image was taken at 11:15am CT.

Here is a more detailed image of where the heavy snow fell in Missouri and Kansas.

You can also see how we are stuck under a cloud shield. Eventually we should start to see the clouds move off to the east although it might take a while.
