Good Friday bloggers,
The big storm from this week is racing away through the Great Lakes. So, what is next?
First, today, is the home opener for the Royals and this afternoon we will see less wind and more sun as the storm moves away. So, we should reach the low 50s by the 7th inning. It will be cool, but not nearly as unpleasant as this morning. Also, this season 41 Action News is the official forecast for the Royals, exciting! So you will see our forecast on the big screen before each home game.
Here is the forecast for this afternoon.
Now to the weekend weather. A surface high pressure will be overhead tonight and early Saturday. This means a clear, calm and cold night with perfect radiational cooling conditions. Lows tonight will drop to the mid/upper 20s, a hard freeze. There may be 1-2 more freezes this month so you may want to hold off planting the delicate vegetation until early may.
Saturday afternoon will be a nice day with highs near 60° and a light wind along with plenty of sunshine.
Sunday will also be a nice day with highs around 60°, but there will be more clouds as a new storm system organizes in the southern Plains. We will talk more about this storm this weekend, but it will likely stay south bringing heavy rain to southern Missouri into the Midwest. We will get lots of clouds and some showers Monday.
Remember our entire weather team will be out at Nebraska Furniture Mart between noon and 3 PM Saturday.
Have a great weekend!
