Kansas City is in the comma head of this storm, and we are finally in one when it isn’t cold enough for snow. Thunderstorms to the south continue to shift east and the heavy rain has made it north to near I-70.  The south side of the KC metro area will have the heaviest rain.

This surface map shows how everything will be shifting east by early to mid-afternoon.  This is another fairly strong surface cyclone with the low pressure area centered over northwestern Arkansas.


Let’s enjoy this storm this morning, and we will look ahead to what is happening in this weather pattern tomorrow and on 41 Action News today and tonight.  It is the last full day of winter!  Thank you for sharing in this weather experience.
