Good morning Weather2020 bloggers,

An upper level storm system is spinning overhead and shifting east over the Kansas/Missouri border early this Saturday morning. This system will be weakening, but creating a risk of severe weather today.  You can see the circulation this morning:

And, here is the radar image from just after noon:

Light rain is in a rotation around the main storm system.  Breezy and Stormy, the weather dogs, got out just in time before the band of heavy downpours moved across earlier this morning.

Here is today’s severe weather risk:

Yesterday was really not active at all. It was a quiet severe weather day for all of the hype from various sources. Just look at the severe weather reports:

It will likely be more active today as the storm, even in it’s weakened state, moves into this year’s hot spot. What is a hot spot? Weather2020 has been identifying the severe weather hot spots for years, and it is a forecast of where the worst severe weather is likely months before we move into severe weather season.  Here is this year’s hot spot forecast from last December:

Let us know if you have any questions.  We will be looking ahead tomorrow. The cold phase is now ending, and in the northeast they are likely looking forward to that. The jet stream will retreat, and we will talk about this tomorrow.  Have a  great Saturday.

Gary

Rip Roaring .22 in Olathe. I am now convinced most of metro is out of play for severe weather or major rain events rest of spring. Gary is leaning towards a hot dry summer and I now concur. Winter storms missed KC outside a few dustings. Enjoy your green lawns while you have them.

Spot on Gary with your severe weather outlook. Several tornados spotted on ground near Wichita and I think out near Salina. Did not hear of damage so perhaps just farmland although I’m sure they can tear up the ground and any planted crops. Sure glad all ingredients did not come together here, especially at night!

PS…Happy Belated Birthday!
