Happy Easter and Passover

Good Saturday bloggers,

Last year it snowed on Easter Sunday. That will not be the case this year as we are looking at some great weather. This will be a good day to head out to Nebraska Furniture Mart for Severe Weather Awareness Day.

You can meet the weather team, myself, Gary, Lindsey and Gerard. We will have unique presentations and Gerard will take you through Storm Tracker. Sunny the weather dog will be out there and you can get a copy of her book, “It’s a Sunny Life.” We hope to see you out there.


Now, let’s go through the forecast. We are in for some great weather this weekend which will be followed by a two part, weak storm system.

The conditions last night were perfect for colder air to settle into the low areas. You can see the creeks, streams and low areas on this map highlighted by the colder colors. I have never seen this on a map like this.


SATURDAY: It will be near perfect with highs in the low to mid 70s along with a south breeze at 10-15 mph.


EASTER SUNDAY (SUNRISE: 6:34 AM): It will be dry and not as cold as Saturday with temperatures in the 50s. It will be a bit breezy from the south at 10-20 mph.


EASTER SUNDAY AFTERNOON: It will be windy and warm with more clouds. Highs will be around 80°.


MONDAY MORNING: The first part of our next system may bring a few showers and thunderstorms. Nebraska and Iowa will see most of the rain with this first part. Lows will be in the 60s and the humidity will be up. Monday afternoon will be mostly cloudy with highs 65°-75°.


TUESDAY MORNING: The second part of the storm system will be producing a nice area of rain and thunderstorms across northern Oklahoma to southeast Kansas. This area of rain will track northeast through the day and weaken.


TUESDAY AFTERNOON: The rain will be moving off to the northeast. It will be mostly cloudy and cooler with highs around 60.


RAINFALL FORECAST: This system will bring around .25″ to .50″ of rain. It will be weakening as it tracks northeast, so amounts may be less than shown. This is the one main rain chance the next five days.


Have a great Easter/Passover weekend.
