« Low Clouds, A Storm & A Big Warm-Up! |
| Warmer this week! »
The Sun Returns!
The sun will be back out on Easter Sunday... eventually! We will start off with clouds around, but they should break up as we go through the day. Areas to the North will see the sun first, and the cloud deck will slowly erode from North to South.
For that reason, cities farther North will see higher temperatures (upper 50s), as the sun will have more time to warm them! Counties to the South (Bates, Henry, Pettis) will stay cloudy the longest... so you'll see cooler temps (around 50). You MAY even see a passing morning shower here.
But once the sun comes out... it is here to stay for awhile! It's still looking like a BIG warm-up early next week. Our surface winds will become southerly, and the winds higher up in the atmosphere (around 5,000 feet) will have a westerly componenet. This combination can bring us a HUGE rise in temperature.

The image above is the 850mb temperature forecast from the GFS. It shows the warmer air in the KC area Tuesday morning! A taste of the 70s as we start the week... but a mid-week storm could have temperatures falling a bit... stay tuned!
