First Thunderstorms of the Season

March in KC

The weather has bounced around with at one point winter seemingly completely over as the trees started to bud and daytime temperatures reached into the 70s. While there were only one or two occasions of a good amount of measurable snow all season, there were two days that had at least a dusting in the last week of March.

Much more dramatic frontal passages here in the Midwest as compared to the Pacific Coast. As the temperature dropped 20 degrees in as many minutes, the winds quickly backed from south to due north.
