NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
-It was a snowy start to the morning across Kansas and Missouri 
Thursday. A weak disturbance passing through brought a burst of snow 
to Kansas City and Saint Louis and areas in between. Nearly 2 inches 
of snow fell around Kansas City while Saint Louis saw a light 
coating. Higher amounts of around 4 to 5 inches were observed across 
Kansas and Missouri as well. The snow made for a slow and slippery 
commute for many folks heading to work. Portions of southern Missouri 
saw an icy wintry mix. Farther south into Texas and Louisiana, 
showers and thunderstorms pushed through the area during the daytime 
but did not cause too many issues. 
-Across the Northeast, largely dry weather ruled the region. However, 
was some leftover snow across Maine and a few lake-effect snow 
showers streamed into western New York and northwestern Pennsylvania. 
The main story was the cold breeze that swept through during the day. 
Many locations saw wind gusts peak between 25 and 35 mph. 
Temperatures were not as warm as Wednesday with many locations 10 to 
15 degrees lower.                  
-In the Pacific Northwest, the morning brought some showers but that 
turned into steadier rain later in the day as another weather system 
approached the coast. Mountain snow showers were observed across 
Rockies while rain showers pushed across Arizona and New Mexico.
