Storm chances return

The weather pattern looks a little unsettled heading through the rest of the week and into our first weekend of April. Any severe weather that we see in Kansas Tuesday night and Wednesday will be somewhat isolated, and hail is going to be the main threats. Click the images to make the bigger. The weather pattern continues to look very active over much of the US.

The satellite image shows two very strong areas of low pressure. One over the Great Lakes that produced significant wind in Kansas Monday and dumped very heavy snows on the Dakotas. The next big low off the west coast will likely put Kansas in a cool, damp period over the weekend. We need rain in the worst way, but even with chances coming in for the weekend, it doesn't look like we will get any big amounts of moisture. Take a look at one computer model projection through 7 p.m. Sunday evening (April 6). It only has Kansas receiving up to .50" in most areas, and that may even be a little overdone. Look for updates later in the week.
