The Next Big Severe Weather Risk

Good morning bloggers,

Surviving The Storm is on 41 Action News at 6:30 PM tonight:  We will discuss the dates when severe weather will set up, the spring forecast, new radar technology & much more! You can watch it streaming on KSHB.com

It has been one wild month of April.  The jet stream is showing signs of weakening just a bit and retreating north, and this will lead to some warming as winter loosens its grip on North America.  Here is an April calendar showing this wild month of April here in KC. Just look at the extremes, and I didn’t put down there that it was 31 degrees for the high temperature earlier this week, on Sunday. This smashed the record lowest high temperature by ten degrees.  The other lows on this calendar show the other records, and it has snowed three straight Sundays, which is just incredible.


Todays Video Blog – We look into the end of next week where one of our targeted dates for severe thunderstorms is now beginning to show up on the models:

Kansas City is now way below average on rainfall. The pressure will be on the end of next weeks set ups to produce heavy rain, as you can see KC is now over 2″ below average for the year.


Thank you for sharing in this weather experience featuring Weather2020 and the LRC. Click on the blog over on Weather2020 and we can have a great conversation today. I have meetings until later this afternoon, so I will check in when I get the time if you have any questions.  Have a great Thursday!
