Yes, that was light snow mixed with other precipitation that fell across the Kansas City area Sunday morning, continuing our winter roller-coaster ride.
After a week of temperatures climbing to almost 80 degrees, winter made an appearance this weekend with temperatures falling below normal on Saturday. The high Saturday reached 41 degrees, a few degrees shy of the normal temperatures in the upper 40s.
The light snow Sunday was not expected to accumulate or turn roads icy. Temperatures were in the mid-30s, melting the snow and making the pavement and the ground wet.
The snow is expected to change to rain by midmorning, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo.
