Rain/snow chance - close call on severe storms

Our next storm system is going to be passing through in the next 24 hours, so get ready for more changes to take place this week. Most of us know that March can come in like a lion, but that's not going to be the case this year (at least in Kansas anyway). 

We will have a cold front coming into western Kansas Tuesday morning, which will be running into higher humidity and creating more clouds. As the front continues pushing east, the chance for scattered rain showers will increase into Tuesday evening. There could be just enough cold air at the very end of the storm to change some of the rain showers to snow, but accumulations are not likely. 

This will be a close call for severe storms in Kansas. It's not too early to start thinking about that kind of thing. After all, this has been a very active start to the storm season across the south and southeastern US. And we are seeing severe weather farther north in places that should still be getting winter weather this time of year. 

Coming up tomorrow, we will take another look at the longer range pattern setting up for our area. It's been nearly 50 days since some areas have had any moisture at all.
