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 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.

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.

Thursday National Simulated Radar

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!
