Good morning Weather2020 bloggers,

It has been a slow beginning to severe weather season. The most direct reason is the extreme cold that has impacted the United States, but that is now fading away as April approaches. We have targeted the first week of April to have a significant severe weather risk, right around the first two to four days of the month, and it is now showing up on some of the computer models.

March Tornado Stats

There is a storm approaching the plains on Wednesday and there will likely be a slight risk of severe weather over parts of the midwest and Mississippi River Valley on Thursday as this system moves across, but it is the early April set-up that has more of our attention and it has been in the forecast on the Weather2020 app and for our business clients for 100 days now.  How will it set-up next week? Will the conditions come together for an outbreak?  We will be able to answer these questions soon.

Have a great day. For more information you read the Action Weather Blog.

Gary using the LRC we have a big event in early September, is there a guess as to what the first week of September could look like?

Another thing about yesterday’s snow event was that the GFS and the NAM model all weekend showed the brunt of the moisture forecast to fall on the Missouri side up through southern Iowa. The very last run of the NAM Sunday night forecast it to be further to the SW. That was a major shift from the model run just 6 hours before that. All said and done, the richest moisture of this system was from NC Ks. down to SE Ks. That’s why you never give up on storms, sometimes they like to change their minds. KC missed a… Read more »

NAO an AO forecast to crash into the negative…..cold pattern around the second week of April maybe? BTW, KC just missed a quick snow storm yesterday. I saw some reports of 5-6 inches just to our west over parts of NC Kansas. Around Riley KS. That snow fell earlier in the day around day break so the sun angle of March was not in play yet. Once the snow reached KC, the sun angle played a role in the no accumulation. Plus, our snow band was lighter. It was close! Would have been nice moisture. Also, Downtown KC observation site… Read more »

Gary, I just now did as you suggested, looking at the KSHB weather blog. But there is nothing there for today yet. No new blog. Your LRC has been calling for this early April set-up for 100 days ? Is that including the Kansas City area ? I will keep an eye out on that blog to see if you think it will affect us….that is the first week of April, right ? One other question is, since you have called for rainy first part of the week of the Masters in Georgia, can you tell us in Kansas City… Read more »
