Good Sunday bloggers,
Our active pattern will continue as storm systems move across the region every 3-5 days. We are in the calmer period for now. How active has it been since the new pattern set up in early October? We have seen 22.44″ of rain/melted snow since October 5th. This is the most rain we have seen this period in Kansas City recorded history as we are almost 11″ above average!
Let’s go day by day for the week ahead and track the next series of storm systems.
SUNDAY: We had a hard freeze this morning with lows in the low to mid 20s. This will be a nice day with 100% sunshine, a light wind and highs 45°-50°. The average high is 61°, so it is 10-15 degrees below average, but will feel much better after Saturdays wind, snow and rain.
MONDAY MORNING: It will not be as cold as Sunday morning, but a light freeze is still possible. Lows will be 30°-35° as areas of high clouds race by.
MONDAY AFTERNOON: No fooling! It will be another nice day with plenty of sunshine through high clouds. It will be a bit breezy with highs in the 50s. Winds will be from the south-southwest at 10-25 mph.
TUESDAY EARLY MORNING: A weak system will zip by with a few showers and sprinkles, mostly north of I-70. Lows will be 40°-45°.
TUESDAY AFTERNOON: It will be a nice April day after the weak system exits early in the morning. Highs will be around 60°.
WEDNESDAY: The next storm will be moving in from the Pacific Ocean. The best chance of rain will be along I-80. However, earlier in the day that area of rain will get its start around I-70. Also, new showers will be forming to the south later in the day, heading north into Kansas.
THURSDAY: Areas of rain and thunderstorms will cross all locations Wednesday night and Thursday. This does not look like huge storm with amounts mostly .10″ to 1″. A few locations could see up to 1.50″. This image is from Thursday morning. The storm will be exiting Thursday afternoon and night.
FRIDAY: This is looking like a nice day as the next storm rapidly approaches. Highs will be in the 60s.
NEXT SATURDAY (APRIL 6TH): It will likely be dry as a wet storm system approaches from the southwest. Highs will be in the low 60s if the storm is faster and highs will be around 70° if the storm is slower.
Have a great week.
