Good morning bloggers, It’s FRIDAY!
Saturday update: We will write up a new blog later today. Here is a link to the Weather2020 blog
A cold front is approaching from the northwest. It is the leading edge of a pretty cold air mass that will be arriving this afternoon.
The colder air is lagging the front. So, Saturday will be the day we feel the affects of this new and large cold air mass. Behind the cold front in central Kansas you can see a pocket of gusty northwest winds. So, when the front comes through 2-3 PM, you will notice a temporary gust of wind with the colder air moving in tonight.
Saturday will see the colder air filter in as a weak storm system tracks out of the Rockies. So, tomorrow will be a cloudy day with areas of snow in Nebraska. These snow areas will head east into eastern Kansas and western Missouri Saturday night, but they will likely dissipate as they head east. So, tomorrow night we may see flurries and a few snow showers (See Map Below). Sunday will also be a cold day as a large Canadian high pressure builds in from the north and takes over much of the USA. Temperatures in many locations will run 10 to 20 degrees below average. Our average high is getting close to 60, so yes our highs will be in the low to mid 40s this weekend, (See Map Below)
Then, if that was not enough a new blast of cold will come in early next week to replace the weekend cold air mass. This new cold will be preceded by a small storm system that will spread snow across Iowa and Nebraska. The southern edge may affect our area Monday afternoon and night with some light snow.
MONDAY 3 PM
So, when will the 50s, 60s and 70s return? The end of next week. It may be Spring, but Winter does not want to leave!
Have a great weekend.
Gary and Jeff
