KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Happy Thursday everyone! It has been a very busy last 7-days in Kansas City.
A week ago there was 1-4" of snow on the ground in the metro but this latest system produced pretty much nothing locally while several inches accumulated in far northern MO.
The snow is really coming down in Maryville as they clear off the sidewalks @nwmostate. Some light snow is possible in the KC Metro this afternoon but very little accumulation is expected.#mowx #kswx #kcwx pic.twitter.com/mGacFbIgUD— Wes Peery (@WesWeather) February 16, 2023
The weather this weekend will thankfully be quite uneventful as our jet stream begins to develop into warm bump or we call a "ridge" of high pressure.
This ridge allows for southerly winds to bring in warmer air and moisture.
Local Weekend Weather
The weekend is looking warmer than average thanks to that southerly wind which will be a little breezy Saturday with gusts near 35mph.
Everyday(Friday-Monday) looks to be mostly sunny except Saturday as the clouds gradually get lower from Saturday morning to the afternoon.
It's not just our weather locally that will be quiet, most of the country will be as well.
National Weekend Weather
If you are traveling this weekend to the East Coast, it will be a soggy start with cold front bringing widespread rain. Freezing rain and sleet will impact northern New England with snow in Maine.
Outside of some precipitation possible in New Mexico/Texas and the upper Mountain West Saturday-Sunday, quiet weather expected for much of the US.
Next chance of precipitation
Our weather looks pretty quiet until next Wednesday and Thursday as an area of low pressure brings in a ton of moisture from the Gulf.
Here is the European weather model bringing in widespread precipitation all over the place.
We will have to see if we can time this up with some cold air and give us our next shot of snow but this maybe another system that bring severe weather to the deep south, who are dealing with another severe weather system today.
Enjoy your weekend!
