Very warm day today!...Updated

I want to talk about Saturday's forecast as it is very complex with a front stalling in the area. High temperatures to the north of the front will likely be in the 40's and 50's. Temperatures south of the front will likley be in the 60's and 70's.

I think the front will position itself right around highway 36, and there could be some showers and thunderstorms along this boundary.

Previous entry below.

Strong southerly winds pushed in warm air, and most locations were in the 70's with low 80's in western Missouri! St. Joseph topped out at 82 degrees and KC had a high of 81. Winds were between 10-40 mph. These strong winds, combined with warm temperatures, and dewpoints in the single digits and even below zero, created an extreme fire danger in western Kansas.

A cold front will push through tonight, but it is weak, and high on Friday should rebound in the 60's and low 70's around the area. It will be a tricky forecast Saturday with a front stalling in the area with 60's and 70's to the south, and 40's and 50's to the north. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, about 40% chance.

This warm weather should last till around Tuesday before another strong cold front pushes through around Tuesday night.
