Good morning bloggers,
Another large area of rain is missing most of our area once again. It’s like the same thing keeps happening over and over again. Of course it is the same thing, as we continue to cycle through the same weather pattern. Fortunately a new weather pattern will be evolving in the next four to six weeks. There is a good chance of rain and thunderstorms coming up, however. In this weather pattern it has always come through with just enough rain right when it seems we are going to really dry out. We are forecasting a good chance of rain and thunderstorms Friday into Friday night as a storm approaches, and then again Sunday night, with a chance of severe weather Sunday night.
As you can see above, the latest morning rain event is just west and northwest of Kansas City. And, below is a satellite picture from yesterday showing Cristobal, Marie, a disturbance in the Gulf, and a storm over the Rocky Mountains. This storm over the Rocky’s is heading our way, but will we always be in the wrong spot for the rain?
Weather2020 made an incredible weather forecast for this part of the weather pattern to return in late August into early September. Using the LRC Weather2020 used knowledge of the cycling weather pattern to forecast these hurricanes over 50 days ago, and also the potential for severe weather to arrive around September 1st. The potential for severe weather Sunday night into Monday is there, but most likely just north of Kansas City across Iowa and Nebraska, but we will have to watch it closely. I blogged about the cycling weather pattern on the Weather2020.com site.
Here is one of the maps we used to forecast the return of these tropical systems, right on schedule:
You can click on this map for a larger view. Yewtrees wanted me to post a map of the forecast Weather2020 made. An alert was sent out on July 1st, and then this map was plotted to show the potential return of Arthur, and other potential systems that get caught within the cycling LRC pattern.
How about our Kansas City Royals! The past two days have been two of the more dramatic games. Now, will it rain Friday night or Sunday night? I am honored to have been chosen to throw out the first pitch Sunday night. Should I practice? I get one throw. Have a great day. We will have your most accurate forecast today and tonight on 41 Action News.
