Very warm St. Patrick's Day!

Highs today topped out in the 70's around the area with abundant sunshine after a cool, moist, and quite foggy morning. With southerly winds Tuesday, highs should be in the 70's and low 80's around the area.

Here are my forecast highs for some cities around the area:

Marceline, MO - 76

Chillicothe, MO - 77

St. Joseph, MO - 77

KCI - 80

Sedalia, MO - 81

Lawrence, KS - 82

The past week has had a slow warming trend, and the longest warming treand all year. Lets take a look at Kansas City International (KCI). On the 11th, the high was only 30 degrees. By the 12th, it was 37 degrees. On the 13th, it warmed to 47 degrees. On the 14th, highs topped out at 57 degrees. On the 15th, temperatures rose to 60 degrees, and today, highs topped out at 73 degrees. The forecast high for KCI tomorrow is around 80 degrees.

Tuesday will be the last day of the warming trend as a cold front is expected to push through the area Wednesday morning. The good news about the cold front is that it is not strong like we have seen all season. It will cool us down 15 to 20 degrees, but it wont be frigid. So temperatures during the morning on Wednesday will be in the 60's, and by Thursday morning, lows will drop into the low to mid 30's.

Thursday should rebound into the 50's and another warming trend will begin on Friday with 70's returning by the begining of next week.

I will have Gary Lezak's Spring forecast posted tomorrow. This is a must see!!
