Good morning bloggers,

The storm began pretty wet on Thursday, and another wet day is in the forecast today.  It is day two of this storm system and 1″ to 2″ of rain is possible with KC on the northern edge of the target for today’s storm system as we will discuss in today’s blog entry.  Here are there rainfall totals for this storm and 2019 in Kansas City:

10

The main energy from this storm system will move out over the Rocky Mountains and out into the plains Saturday morning.  Another lead wave will create the conditions at the surface for a cyclone to intensify this afternoon and evening:

The area in my plotted black dashed line is the target for some heavy to strong thunderstorms, a few possibly severe, just south of Kansas City.  The SPC lines up with the same area:

And, then by Saturday morning, snow is possible. Here is the overnight NAM model prediction:

After this passes by, a cold air mass will be in place and a hard freeze is possible from northern Oklahoma into Kansas and Missouri:

Kansas City Weather Timeline:

  • Today: The wind will gradually increase from the north to northeast later today with scattered showers. Heavy rain and thunderstorms are possibly later in the day into Friday night.
  • Saturday:  There is a chance of some snowflakes mixed in, and a possibility of a complete changeover to snow. A dusting of snow is possible, but with temperatures above freezing, we aren’t expecting any travel problems. Temperatures in the 30s warming into the lower 40s.

Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC.  Go over to the Weather2020 blog to join in the conversation as we share in this weather experience.  Have a great day!

Gary

Good dusting in the Northland. We may end up with an inch, unless it warms up quickly.

Pretty intense lightning and loud thunderclaps here in SW Topeka over the past 15 minutes and the temp is only 43F. Pretty impressive.

Planted Macho Mix last weekend from Grass Pad. It’s a fescue. I believe I’m good if it doesn’t sprout. Does anyone have any tips if I should protect tomorrow night for temps in the 20’s?

Yesterday I saw the Military / CIA new aircraft they will be using this spring / summer for their continued weather modification operations..all white freshly painted but they are light jets this year. One flew over Lees Summit…some try to make the case it was a corporate jet landing at the Lees Summit airport but it was at about 1000 Ft 10 miles out, so not buying that. Not surprisingly Flight Tracker app showed nothing

Those people who label others as “nutjobs” CHOOSE to ignore the obvious that is right in front of them. These people are truly the ones who are “clueless”.

Kirksville didn’t get as much as other areas – we got 0.39”. Our total for March is still below average, but we’re about 1” above for the year. Looks like more to come tonight, so am sure we’ll catch up.

Had a brief period of pea sized hail just off 24 highway and east of 291 highway. Pretty good storm for how chilly it’s been outside today.

Every post on the blog today got down voted? Someone(s) must be in a bad humor. It’s Friday, hooray for the weekend and we all aren’t freezing our you know what’s off. Grass is greening up and hopefully flood waters can recede, although now Montana and the Dakotas are suffering form flooding due to the rapid snow melt. Not sure how much will end up in the Missouri river basin and how fast it comes down along with potential rains upstream… I am going to begin the spring battle with some rather nasty weeds and vine crud that is in… Read more »

I could post I found the cure for some horrible disease and it would probably have negative votes.

Everything on here gets negative votes. The +/- addition is a bit of a joke. No down vote this obviously

Snow is fine as long as it melts on contact.

Vegetation will explode next week. Pollen sufferers will have a bad couple of weeks.

Good thing you can’t downvote the blog post itself…no doubt it would have 10+ downvotes, because it has the word “snow” in it.

I had about the same amount as KCI, just north of Liberty. May not get to mow until July at this rate. Praying for those near the rivers. Water damage sucks! I would not wish that on anyone. Happy Friday all!
