Joe’s Weather Blog: Calming Down (Sort Of)
March can be a very fickle month around these parts…a few years ago it was so warm that all the spring flowers were out weeks ahead of time and the grass had already greened up and was being mowed. Then there are March’s like last year when we have a couple of big snow storms…or March’s where there is severe weather through the Plains…like I said this is a month know for it’s “fickleness”.
Today is somewhat a case in point. Temperatures are approaching 40° now…but out to the west of here snow is falling in parts of C KS. Let’s watch the radar from Topeka and see how this band holds together as it moves across the state. It’s just a skinny band and with temperatures above freezing when it comes through later today (assuming it holds together)…its tough to imagine any accumulations around the KC area from this band.
from here there is another weak system that will pass to the SW of the area on Saturday…we’ll watch that for some rain/snow potential (not a lot). In between we should see some significant moderation in the temperatures by Friday with highs soaring into the 50s in the area!
After the weekend setback we should be good to go for milder weather on Sunday and Monday…as highs may surge through the 60s on Sunday and Monday (with 70s not out of the question). So March is certainly revealing it’s fickleness over the next week or so.
The good news for those who hate the snow…is that there are no snow storms heading this way for the foreseeable future (the next 6 days at least it appears).
That’s about it for today…not a real long blog for a change…will do something more in depth about our summer future tomorrow afternoon maybe.
