Good morning bloggers,

It’s Friday!  Well, we made it through winter.  I doubt we have had our last chance of snow, but the signs of spring have finally become loud and clear.  Kansas City has still not had a 65° day since October 30th, which is one of the most incredible records I have seen in a long time.  We would never have thought that we would set that kind of record this year, even though the Weather2020 LRC prediction of a colder winter in the face of a developing El Niño has verified.  It is now March 15th, and we still wait for our first 65° day. It will likely finally happen later next week, in fact a 70° is also likely within around one week.  I will make that call on 41 Action News as I put my 7 day forecast together soon.

Saturday:

4

There will be a very weak cold front approaching Saturday. This will provide the conditions with a surge to near 60 degrees Saturday afternoon. This is great news for Sunny The Weather Dog and myself as we are Grand Marshal of the Brookside St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Here is the route:

2019-parade-route-map_0

The parade begins at 2 PM, so get lined up early. We will see you there.  Have a great day! We will look ahead over the weekend and on 41 Action News tonight on Friday Night In The Big Town.

Gary

Odd question, but I know people have gone through weather charts to find old cycles. Does anyone know 1959-1960’s cycle length?

Looks like it could be record flooding at Atchison.

Tuttle Creek Reservoir is filling up rapidly, but not to worry, the Tuttle Creek website says it is just “moderate flooding” when water is 9′ deep pouring through the spillway, and it doesn’t become “major flooding” until the water level lacks one foot of pouring over the top of the dam.

Wow. I-35 at I-435 there was a 3 car wreck in the backup due to construction going on south at I-35 & Santa Fe. Right while I was watching on the KC scout cameras a motorcycle slammed into the back of one of the police officer cars. Motor cycle driver flew off on the SB shoulder his bike flew over the concrete median to the NB lanes another box truck hit the motorbike in the inner NB lane. Crazy stuff! People need to PAY ATTENTION when they are driving. Snow packed roads no excuse for that

This is just for fun but snow may not be done yet!! March 27th timeframe, does a system around this time fit the LRC?

This would be a near perfect 2011 analog. Had a very late March (elite 8 Sunday) snow after everything had bloomed that year then many of us remember what happened the next two months: Major tornado outbreaks galore including the deadliest super outbreak in late April and the infamous Joplin EF5. Here’s hoping this all doesn’t verify………….

I can’t quite get it exactly, since the LRC seems to have shifted possibly as much as six days late, however…

…if it has in fact shifted six days late, then it *almost* lines up with the late January cold blast.

I-29 now closed in both directions from Rockport north to Plattsmouth, NE.

This is kind of a scary thought. Even with all the flooding we have, 98.4% of the upper midwest still has snowpack with 14.4″ average depth.

2019>1993 if this trough pattern continues the next three to four months.

I can confirm that. We have over 2ft still. I just posted an updated pic of my front yard to our FB group

I’ve been checking the soil; for the first time in several years it’s really frozen, and it was rock hard two weeks ago, now it feels thawed. I think Gary is right on, we’ve turned the corner, especially looking at the relatively mild weather on tap starting this weekend… Hopefully if we do see snow and it sticks it will be one of those heavy wet snows that doesn’t last long. FV3-GFS 00z Wed Mar. 27 is hinting at a 2″ snow which lines up nicely with early October and early February LRC. I wonder if that was one of… Read more »

Careful with your counting. LRC seems to have shifted quite a bit during February.

If the Spring flooding is being caused by rapid snow melt, even if it does rival 1993 – will Spring rains here and in the upper midwest make the flooding worse, or will the sudden influx of snow water cause the crest to happen in the near future with Spring rains draining normally when they start? I guess how does the system handle all this water and on top of that what is coming in the upcoming months – if they are releasing all the dams/spillways now does that mean they are doing all this to mitigate the risk or… Read more »

39 and sunny and the warmer temps and recent Rains have put a dent in our snowpack. Still a couple feet snow depth in places so we really need a gradual warming and then slight freeze at night for the foreseeable future to help minimize the flooding. We all ready have several roads under water. Next week looks to warm into the 50s! I can’t wait. Have a great wknd bloggers!

Maybe we can have a White Christmas this year (I know I’m hopeful, but I can help it)! Although, I would want to be just a regular 3 to 5 inches, nothing like the Christmas Blizzard of 2009.

MAJOR, historic flooding in NE and IA. What happens when you have record snowfall and then it all melts at once.
Looks like I-29 is going underwater again so anyone headed north should be prepared for a detour.

Even though a lot of people are wanting the warmer weather, it may not be such a good thing because that would mean more runoff upstream, and it would lead to bigger flooding problems just north of KC, and west of Omaha. I’ve even heard some talk that I-29 could become closed if the predictions that the NWS offices are making come true. This event, for some rivers, could be worse than in 2011, or possibly even 1993. I guess we shall wait and see.

Oh, and I was first.

..I29 southbound is already closed from Exit 35 to the Missouri line south of Hamburg, IA.
