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.
MAP #3: RAINFALL FORECAST TUESDAY-THURSDAY
Have a great day and week ahead and enjoy the summer weather!
