An Approaching Rainstorm and another Record high?

Good Monday morning bloggers,

Well, it is another early Spring day that will feel like the end of June or July as our forecast high is 87°.  This would tie a record set back in 1889!

The weather will change the next few days as a storm system approaches from the southwest USA.  This is good thing, so that we know we are not in the weather twilight zone!  Rain chances will increase and temperatures will drop.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will likely form Tuesday afternoon and evening (SEE MAP #1) as a weak cold front moves in from the northwest and an upper level low moves into the southwest Plains.

MAP #1: Valid Tuesday 8 PM…The first band of rain and thunderstorms will be here or approaching or ending.  This model has it approaching.

The rain should become more widespread as the main upper low tracks either into Kansas or northern Oklahoma.  MAP #2 below is what the NAM is showing.  The GFS is farther north, but it looks like either way most locations should see a widespread rain of .50″ to 1.50″, see MAP #3.

MAP #2: UPPER LEVEL FLOW valid 3 AM Thursday.


Have a great day and week ahead and enjoy the summer weather!

    Highs in the 60’s all week, looks like I need to dig out the winter coat again.

    Actually had my AC kick in 3 cycles yesterday – got the house thermostat set to 81F and it still needed it. Starting to wonder if the insulation may need work later on…

    Looking forward to a return to more seasonable temperatures. This weekend was nice but a bit much this early in the year.

    How does this pattern translate to June/July?
