It’s fairly typical to see a cold snap around or following Easter weekend, but this year brings about a different pattern.
Thanks to an approaching cold front as we head into Saturday, we’ll see one of the warmest days of the year so far, as highs climb into the mid 80s. As the front tracks closer to Mid-Missouri, we could see a few showers and storms fire during the afternoon. If this occurs, which is not looking likely, it will be along and north of the I-70 corridor. The greatest threat for rain arrives as we head into the late evening hours Saturday and into Easter Sunday.
With this front, there is a threat for strong storms. It’s the lowest scale on the severe threat, but if we do see a storm go severe it will be very short lived. Thankfully, our only threats with this line of storms will be pea to quarter size hail, with isolated wind damage. The good news for those who have plans to easter egg hunt, most of Sunday will be dry, but the ground will be a little wet.
Enjoy the beautiful weather as we head into Saturday, with plenty of sunshine and stay tuned to ABC17 News for the newest information regarding the track of the storms.
