A Look Ahead To Baseball’s Opening Day

Good morning,

Spring begins today at 4:58 PM central time. Yesterday, it was 72° at Yohin Lake way up in northern Canada.   Surrounded by cold water, Vancouver Island officially hit 75 Tuesday, an all-time record for the month of March.  Tofino, British Columbia broke not only the all-time March high temperature record, but also the April high temperature with 74.  Wow!  Here in Kansas City, we have yet to have a 65° day since October 30th.  We have smashed the record by over a week already.


With spring beginning, we must remember what happened last year. It was a very cold April, and then suddenly a very warm May.  And, it snowed the first three Sunday’s in April last year.  The weather pattern is cycling according to the LRC and we know there are strong storm systems lining up in the next month.  Severe weather risks will be getting closer and the chance of another snow is still alive until we get past another three weeks or so.  Take  a look at this storm forming on opening day for the Royals and White Sox in Kansas City next week:


This is another very strong surface low forming over southeast Colorado with the latest models showing some rain and thunderstorms that may affect opening day.  Some of the models even have a major snowstorm as this moves by one day later. So, it has our attention. We have been predicting a storm to be arriving around opening day for months already. Let’s see how it sets up.

Have a great Wednesday!
