A very shallow Arctic cold front pushed through Kansas on February 5th. By very early February 6th warm air and moisture just above the surface started surging north. This set the stage for widespread freezing drizzle, freezing rain along with some sleet. Warm air above the Arctic airmass at the surface also provided a great setup for scattered storms, with many of them producing sleet and hail.
