Record warmth will visit Kansas this week, with the only reason today won’t break records in many locations being that the record highs are into the 80’s. Records tomorrow and the rest of the week are lower, and we expect records to fall particularly tomorrow and maybe Thursday.
While the weekend won’t be as wild as all that, we know March can be extremely changeable, putting the roller coaster of February to shame in some respects. By this weekend we start to see a classic springtime pattern setup. Saturday a dry line is to push across the region, and we may have just enough moisture ahead of it for a storms or severe storm or two. We’ll refine those risks and timings as the weekend comes closer. Then we get sharply colder behind the front, with lows dropping from upper 40’s and low 50’s Saturday morning to below freezing Sunday morning. We may eke out a bit of snowfall Sunday morning and after sunset; daytime could see some showers. All in all, this looks like an interesting weekend.
