KANSAS CITY, Mo. — We’re in for some interesting weather the next several days.
As the Kansas City area prepares for a blast of Arctic air, there was another weather phenomenon in the skies above the metro on Tuesday.
41 Action News meteorologist Wes Peery said that rising, warm air coming from nearby power plants caused a brief bit of snow at Kansas City International Airport Tuesday morning.
The Kansas City office of the National Weather Service also tweeted Tuesday morning it had received reports of “industrial snow bands” leaving a light dusting of snow in locations downstream of power plants.
For those downstream (northwest) of an power plant, we are getting some reports of "industrial snow" bands that are resulting in a light dusting of snow.— NWS Kansas City (@NWSKansasCity) February 2, 2021
