City says its preparing for record frigid weather

forecastThe city is preparing for winter weather including cold wind chill temperatures and possibly the coldest weather we’ve experienced in 20 years.

According to the National Weather Service, Kansas City will experience light snow beginning Saturday, Jan. 4 afternoon through Sunday, Jan. 5 around noon. Local accumulations of 1-4 inches are possible. An extreme cold front will move into Kansas City on Sunday, Jan. 5. Below zero temperatures combined with a brisk north wind will create wind chills between -20 and -35 degrees overnight and into early Monday, Jan. 6 morning.

City snow crews assigned to primary/arterial routes will begin checking routes for slick spots on Saturday, Jan. 4 at 3:30 p.m., before snow starts falling, and will work around the clock. Residential snow crews will work in neighborhoods on Sunday, Jan. 5 from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
