Good morning bloggers,

An area of snow is spreading across Nebraska and South Dakota this morning as a clipper-like system is tracking across the plains into the Great Lakes states this morning. Here is the radar as of 7:45 AM this morning:

This afternoon, the surface storm associated with this wave will be tracking into the Chicago, IL vicinity with a band of rain and a few thunderstorms.  The snow will continue near the South Dakota/Nebraska border, and a cold front will be approaching Kansas City just as the Royals home openers first pitch is made around 3 PM.

Here is the set up for this afternoon:

The Royals then have Tuesday off, and game two at home will be Wednesday night. The latest NAM model has a dry forecast for Wednesday evening:

The rain chances appear they will increase later Wednesday night into Thursday. It is really going to be interesting later this week as some models have some decent rain and others do not.

Have a great day. We will look ahead to the set up later in the week tomorrow.
