Good afternoon…everyone is dressed in dejected today in account of the Royals Opening Day. As I blazon this blog…it’s in the lower 40s…not actually baseball acclimate out there today, actually added like football weather. The affair is…the arrangement continues to point to “generally” algid acclimate as we’ll be accessible to shots of algid acclimate advancing from Canada over the abutting brace of weeks. Some of the continued ambit archetypal abstracts is actually rather air-conditioned for the ages of April as a accomplished as well…whether that’s because of the colder trends to alpha the month…or added of a assiduous arctic for the ages as a whole…we’ll see.

The somewhat acceptable account to this…with chillier weather…it’s tougher for us to accept absolute astringent acclimate applicable in KC. The nations apathetic alpha to astringent acclimate division may abide as well.
Tonight: Variable clouds with added allowance skies overnight. Arctic as able-bodied with a acceptable frost in the morning. Lows in the 20s
Friday: Partly blurred and cartel I say added appropriate with highs able-bodied into the 50s to abreast 60° with abundant sunshine
Saturday: A algid advanced will move through…so there may be some showers out there, abnormally afore lunch. The apprehension will about-face appear the arctic at 15-25 MPH in the afternoon. Highs may max out in the 50s afore the advanced comes in abreast lunch…then array of boring abatement off in the afternoon
Sunday (Easter): Mostly blurred and algid with highs afterpiece to 40°. There is a adventitious of snow ablaze snow showers as well. Can it accrue on blooming surfaces? Alone if it comes bottomward adamantine enough…but it looks like a appealing arctic day. IF the clouds adhere boxy all day…we may alone be in the 30s…one of the coldest Easters in decades potentially in Kansas City.
Yuck afresh today…although there are allowance skies alive southwards this afternoon.

Here is a attending at the aboriginal afternoon accessory picture…there is some allowance alive southwards…near 36 artery in arctic MO…
The HRRR archetypal has agilely apparent some awe-inspiring ablaze showers afire up about 4PM or so…not abiding if that’s real…but there is some attenuate lift in the mid and aerial levels advancing through about then…and you can see the college clouds alive through eastern KS…perhaps a assurance of that lift.
Tomorrow should actually be OK…for a change.
Saturday won’t be terrible, although a few showers can’t be disqualified out afore lunch. There is a rather stout algid advanced advancing through…so temperatures will abiding off and/or abatement a bit in the afternoon.
So about Easter…
Let’s alpha with this…some of the coldest Easters in KC acclimate history…
The coldest Easter was on 4/4/1920 with a adorable aerial of 28° and we had 3.6″ of snow too! (also our snowiest Easter)

2) 3/24/1940: 35°/20° (trace of snow)
3) 3/28/1937: 35°/28° (.1″ of snow)
4) 3/29/1964: 38°/21° (trace of snow)
5) 4/8/1928: 39°/31° (trace of snow)
6) 4/2/61: 42°/29°
7) 4/8/17: 43°/30°

Interesting to agenda that back highs on Easter were in the 30s…it consistently active at atomic “something”.

Don’t be afraid if there are flakes on Sunday. This is 1) a arctic air accumulation architecture southwards…2) there is additionally a little streaky beachcomber advancing out of the western Plains as well. It may be angry some drier air aloft as it approaches…and in reality, at atomic to me…it looks like around every added beachcomber that confused through the arena this accomplished winter…some produced some snow…others had the snow falling afar as it approved to move into eastern KS
We should be rapidly allowance out after in the day…so IF we’re activity to get to 40° it would accept to appear late.
Another attempt of colder air is acceptable after in the 1st anniversary of April.
So about April…I’m not actually a big fan of the CFS archetypal that is run 4 x’s per day out to about 12 months. Why they charge to run it that abounding times a day is above me…perhaps is so that they can again get an boilerplate of the day’s runs and appear up with article added authentic in it’s assuming of things…So actuality is what the CFS thinks for the ages of April.
That is not a acceptable attending for the month.
I actually anticipate the 1st 15 canicule of the ages are activity to boilerplate out beneath average…I’m not abiding about the aftermost anniversary of April though. Makes one admiration about this abutting map…
