A Two Part Storm System

Happy Easter bloggers,

It was a beautiful sunrise here in KC for Easter 2019. Today will be a warm day, but it will become quite windy with south wind gusts 40-45 mph.


We are tracking a two part storm system that will affect our weather Monday through Wednesday.

TODAY: It will be partly to mostly sunny, windy and warm with highs around 80°. The wind will be gusting to 40-45 mph from the south. The first part of the next storm system will be moving into Nebraska later today. Southwest Kansas will see highs around 90°, but with a lack of moisture we do not expect severe weather out there today.


MONDAY MORNING: Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, especially for northern Missouri. Lows will not drop much below 65° as clouds and humidity increase. The wind will be from the south down to 10-25 mph.


MONDAY AFTERNOON: It will be mostly cloudy with highs 70°-75°. If the clouds stay thick, then highs will stay 65°-70°, not rising much from the morning lows. A cold front will drift through during the evening with little rain as we will be in between part one that is tracking to the western Great Lakes and part two that is organizing in the southern Plains.


TUESDAY MORNING: A large area of rain and thunderstorms will be located across Oklahoma and southern Kansas as the second part of the storm system drifts northeast. We will be on the northern edge with lows in the 50s.


TUESDAY AFTERNOON: The second part will move into our area and weaken. This means it will be a cloudy day with scattered showers. Highs will be in the 50s. If this part holds together more, we could see a more widespread and heavier rain. This second part may linger into Wednesday as a main storm tracks across the southern Plains. The main storm could be considered a third part.


RAINFALL FORECAST MONDAY-WEDNESDAY: 2″ to 5″ of rain is likely across Oklahoma and Texas as the main storm targets those locations.


We have the chance to see .25″ to .50″ with some locations seeing close to 1″. If you need to get fertilizer down this would be enough rain to wash it in. However, there is no guarantee we see this much rain as later tonight the thunderstorms look scattered and the system on Tuesday could weaken faster.  If we miss the rain this time, our next chances will be in about a week.


Have a Happy Easter and a great week ahead.
