We are tracking two storms systems, a blast of cold and huge warm up the next 7 days. This morning we had the first part of storm #1. The heaviest rain stayed east of KC, but scattered showers will be around until about noon. The main part of storm #1 tracks into Missouri on Monday, putting our region in the comma head, northwest quadrant, of the storm. This should bring us a nice widespread rain. The storm will exit Monday afternoon and there may be a peek of sun before it sets Monday. The second storm arrives Tuesday and exits Wednesday. It looks like we will be in the comma head (cold side of the storm) of this storm as cold air comes rushing in. So, this storm may bring heavy rain, strong north winds, a temperature drop to the 30s and yes perhaps some mixed snowflakes! We then may have a freeze at the end of the week followed by a weekend warm up to near 80°! That is a mouth full. Click on the video below for a more detailed look at this wild weather pattern.

Have a great week.
