Two Systems for Mother’s Day Weekend

Good Saturday bloggers,

We are tracking two storm systems for this weekend. We are not expecting flash flooding or severe weather. The first system is now moving through Kansas and Missouri and will exit this afternoon. The second is now in the northern Plains. This system will track southeast and move through during Mother’s day.


SATURDAY AFTERNOON/EVENING: Our system from the morning will be long gone. Clouds will be left as highs reach 55° to 60°. The next system will already be bringing showers and thunderstorms to Nebraska, northwest Kansas and northwest Iowa.


MOTHER’S DAY MORNING: A band of scattered showers will be moving through with lows around 50.


MOTHER’S DAY AROUND NOON: There may be a few dry hours after the early morning showers. Then, around noon there will be new showers and possibly a thunderstorm as highs climb to 60°-65°.


MOTHER’S DAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING: The main system will be twirling by and there will likely be an increase in the coverage of showers and a few thunderstorms. Temperatures will drop to the 50s in rain areas.


MONDAY: The system from Sunday exits, making for a nice Monday with highs 65°-70°. The morning may start with low clouds and some fog.


RAINFALL FORECAST THIS WEEKEND: When you add up both storm systems, rainfall totals will reach .10″ to 1″. So, there will not be any flash flooding or severe weather.


MOTHER’S DAY: At this time it looks like the best times for rain will be early in the morning and after noon. Highs will reach 60°-65°, but in rain areas temperatures will drop to the 50s. So, temperatures tomorrow may be up and down depending on where and when it is raining.


Tuesday through Friday will see calmer and warmer weather with highs mostly 75° to 80°. The one main rain chance is later Tuesday into Wednesday.

Happy Mother’s Day and have a great weekend.,

Jeff Penner
