Latest updated blog: The weekend is here! Rain chances, and severe weather season. -Doug

Good Friday night!  We made it to the weekend.  I am ready for a pretty nice Saturday.  Alright, first off, we started talking about severe weather season last night.  So lets continue.  We will discuss aspects of this years severe weather season next week as well.

The Heady Pattern this year has most of the action in the northern Plains or extreme SE KS, southern MO, eastern OK points east.  I expect this to be the target zone for severe weather.  I expect about average amount of events.  But I do think most of us our in the higher threat to have bigger events.  Here is the reason why.  This pattern has numerous waves that roll either south of us or right over us.  Because this is a recurring pattern, this won’t change.  This will put us in the fire zone for some bigger severe weather events.  This doesn’t mean we will have a tornado.  It does me that this pattern will give us a higher potential of seeing one in our area.  I will keep digging into this next week.

Watch out for some patchy fog tonight.  Saturday, looks good for the most part.

Clouds will increase late in the day with some scattered showers by evening.  These will pick up a bit over night due to a cold front passing through.  Now, I don’t think the rain will be heavy, but some scattered showers.

Rainfall amounts will be light.

Sunday, a lot of clouds and cooler.  Saturday is definitely the day to get out and enjoy it.  Have a great weekend!

March 14th-20th:  We start the week with rain or snow chances on Sunday.  The cycle before this system produced 1″ of snow.  With cool temperatures for Sunday, we’ll watch it.  Mild temperatures return for Tuesday and Wednesday with rain chances on Wednesday and Thursday.  This system gave us severe weather with some tornado warnings on January 30th, lets watch this one!  Cool for Friday before we turn milder for Saturday as we start a dry weekend out.
