The (Accurate) Perception of a Missed Forecast
Take a look at this radar map of the snow falling over eastern Kansas this morning.
The forecast last night was for 1/2 to 1" of snow across the area (at least the forecast I saw). However, if you are living under the dark blue band from Herrington to Paola, chances are you are going to end up with 2-3" inches, maybe more in a couple of spots.
The exact position of these sub-county width snow bands is extremely difficult to predict. And, that is a cause for a lot of snow busts in the Great Plains.
