Good Sunday morning bloggers,
The weather today will be windy, warmer, but nice. It is about time! Highs will reach the 60s with periods of clouds, a great day for a race!
The next series of changes begin Monday as a storm system and new cold blast arrive. One of these days we will stop talking about cold blasts as May is around the corner, right? There are some signs this may be the last intense cold blast with all subsequent cold fronts not being as powerful.
Below is the time line for the weather through Tuesday.
Today: Periods of clouds, windy and warmer with highs in the 60s. Wind: S 15-25 mph.
Tonight: Partly cloudy and cool with lows around 50°.
Monday morning: It will likely be a dry rush hour with temperatures warming to the 50s, see MAP #1
MAP #1: Monday morning. The cold blast and storm are organizing to the northwest.
MAP # 2: Monday Afternoon/Evening. Highs will reach the low to mid 60s. Then the cold front arrives around 5-6 PM with a good chance for showers and thunderstorms. The chance for severe weather is very low as it will not be warm enough and there will not be enough low level Gulf moisture. However, some thunderstorms could produce small hail.
MAP #3: Monday Night. The cold front, showers and thunderstorms will move off to the east as the colder air rushes in on northwest winds 15-25 mph. Temperatures will fall to the 40s, then 30s.
MAP #4: Tuesday early morning. A new area of cold rain will rapidly form after midnight Monday night as a system rotates southeast through the Rockies then east into the Plains. So, Tuesday morning’s rush hour will be rather unpleasant with temperatures in the 30s, northwest winds 15-30 mph and a cold rain. Ouch! Yes, that is snow in northern Kansas.
MAP #5: Tuesday. This going to be a wet and raw day with temperatures in the 30s to low 40s, northwest winds 15-30 mph and a cold rain with some snowflakes possibly mixed in! Northeast and central Kansas may have a period of light snow. The sky clears Tuesday night, most likely leading to a freeze Wednesday morning with lows 27°-32° in the area.
Next weekend will see a warm up to at least average, which means highs approaching 70°!
Have a great rest of your weekend!
