First 80 & More Rain Chances
I hope everybody enjoyed the weekend and the May or early June-like temperatures. Today was 80 degrees at KCI...this was the first 80 degree high temp since last November 8. Most areas southeast of the metro remained in the 70s today with a good deal of mid and high level cloudiness. Expect Sunday's dry weather to remain in place tonight with lows only in the 60s! Hard to believe our overnight lows have been warmer than the average high for this time of year!
More rain chances head our way this week. The first chance of showers and thunderstorms will occur Monday into Tuesday as upper level low pressure sits over Texas. We are on the northern fringe of the precipitation shield. So once again it is likely that some parts of the viewing area will miss out on the rain. Our in-house computer model keeps rain totals fairly light with around 0.25" to the south of KC and only a few hundreths north at St. Joe. Keep in mind if thunderstorms develop and hang over any one area for 30 minutes or more there is a good chance that more than 0.25" could fall.
The other rain chance this week is Thursday into Friday. A rather strong cold front will push through the region by early Thursday. The question with this system is whether or not another wave forms over the southern Plains and moves up the cold front on Thursday Night and Friday. This is something we'll watch closely heading into this week.
While not everyone will get wet on Monday...at least some locations will see some welcomed rainfall.
I'm not sure how many people enter NCAA pools for fun or office bragging rights, but somehow I have all four of the Final Four teams correct on my bracket. Too bad my early picks were so bad that I'm basically out of the running!
Have a great week!
