Good morning bloggers,
The cycling pattern according to the LRC supports five storm systems in the next 15 days. A few of these storm systems will likely be quite strong, and a couple of weaker ones will track across the nation as well. The next storm system is moving into the west coast tonight into Wednesday and it will zip out into the plains on Thursday.
This storm will produce snow close to the Iowa/Missouri border, and possibly a few sprinkles or light rain showers near KC Thursday evening. So, we will not have our 41st date with snowflakes this season. Kansas City has now had 40 days with at least a trace of snow at KCI Airport. Take a look at this incredible number of days with snow, beginning with the earliest recorded measurable snow in KC history:
The storm following this one is stronger, and wetter, and then the one following that, storm #3 in this series is even wetter and possibly stronger early next week. There will be warmer surges ahead of these storm systems and one of those surges will arrive early Saturday with a chance of it warming up to near 60 degrees briefly around noon Saturday. We will look deeper into this pattern tomorrow and on 41 Action News tonight.
Have a great day.
