   Mesoscale Discussion 0030
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK

   Areas affected...North-Central/Northeast KS...Southeast/East-Central
   NE...Southwest/South-Central IA...Far Northwest MO

   Concerning...Heavy snow 

   Valid 251641Z - 252245Z

   SUMMARY...Ongoing heavy snow across southeastern NE and
   north-central/far northeast KS is expected to continue for next
   several hours. Additionally, gradual eastward expansion of this
   heavy snow into southwest IA and far northwest MO is anticipated.

   DISCUSSION...Recent surface observations show numerous locations
   across southeast NE and adjacent north-central KS reporting moderate
   to heavy snow. Satellite and radar imagery show the dry slot is
   currently moving through central KS, suggesting much of southeast NE
   will remain within the band of heavy snow for at least the next
   several hours. Additionally, with the shortwave trough approaching
   the region, lift will likely intensify, resulting in increased
   snowfall rates and the potential for up to 2" per hour (particularly
   across far southeast NE). 

   As the overall system moves northeastward, the area of heavy snow is
   expected to do likewise, bringing snowfall rates over 1" per hour in
   southwest/south-central IA and far northwest MO during the next
   several hours. Once established, these high snowfall rates are
   expected to last for 3+ hours.
