Calmer Weather for a Few Days

Good Saturday,

The current storm is over and it just missed KC as we were expecting, but boy did it come close.  Look at the radar from around 1 AM Saturday.  Paola to La Cygne to Butler was seeing some rather heavy rain with very little rain in KC.  If the northern edge was 20 miles further north it is a different story for the city.  This is not much of a difference meteorologically, but to us it makes a huge difference.



RADAR ESTIMATED RAINFALL TOTALS: There was some nice rain from Garnett to Clinton.  Remember, these are radar estimated totals, so your rain gauge may have a much different reading.





The weather is now looking great through Tuesday as the storm is moving away.  Let’s go through the weather Saturday-Monday.

SATURDAY: The sky will clear from north to south.  So, highs will range from the 60s north to 50s south.  Highs may stay in the 40s along I-44 where clouds and rain will linger much of the day.  It will be a bit windy with a northeast wind at 10-25 mph.



SUNDAY MORNING: It will be clear, calm and cold as highs pressure settles over the Plains.  There may be some frost around the area as lows drop to the 30s.  A few pockets may see lows 29-32, mostly west of KC, closer to the surface high pressure.



SUNDAY AFTERNOON: The weather will be about as nice as it gets with sunshine, light wind and highs around 70°.


MONDAY: This will be a windy and warmer day with highs in the 70s.  The cold front to the north will drift in by Tuesday.  This will be the start of a more active weather pattern Wednesday-Friday.  Gary showed this potential in Friday’s blog and we will look more at it on Sunday.



RAINFALL TOTALS: The pattern changed in early October.  As we know it was quite dry during the winter and has become wetter during the spring.  However, we are still around 4″ below average rainfall since October 8th, despite being around 1″ above average for 2017.


Have a great weekend and enjoy the great spring weather.
