Activity is being driven by daytime heating resulting in instability in the atmosphere but we’re not expecting much development as there is a cap in place in the lower levels of the atmosphere.
This and the dry air that’s being filtered up into the storm will keep numerous storms from forming. We still can’t rule out a rogue storm in Central and Eastern Kansas later on tonight as this low moves onto the NW.
The cold front associated with it going to move eastward as well and this will drag with it cooler air for the start of the workweek and into Tuesday.
Another wave of energy will move up along this front as it stalls a bit, sparking up another shot at some moisture by late Monday into the day on Tuesday. This system will be out of our hair by Wednesday and Thursday with more sunshine and drier air taking back over the Plains. Highs will be climbing back into the 70s with even warmer air moving in by next weekend. The warmth will be developing out ahead of front slated to move our way by this coming Friday. The breeze will be picking up as a resulting bringing our afternoon readings back up into the mid to upper 80s.
Happy Easter and have a great rest of your holiday!
