Good morning bloggers!
I hope you’re having a good pre-Thanksgiving weekend! The weather has been terrific – and it continues today. The pic below is our Ericsson Skyview camera pointed toward the Sprint Campus. This is about as good as it can look for November. Blue skies were overhead, the drought masked significantly by November’s natural drying tendency, temperatures warmed near 50 by 9am.
The trend will be for clouds to develop today. First will be the high cirrus clouds. Toward the end of the day I expect the clouds to get a little thicker and develop at lower levels of the atmosphere. Tonight, these clouds could bring rain. Our 50% chance for rain in KC indicates that it’s also possible that we could get missed.
Below is the satellite/radar picture from early this morning. The satellite shows the clouds in gray, the radar shows the rain in green. Rain falling across New Mexico and Texas will gradually spread northeastward throughout the day. By 10pm, rain may be falling in KC.
If we do get rain, it’ll be light…generally under 0.1″ overnight with isolated higher amounts. While a few early a.m. sprinkles are possible Monday, we’ll clear out and have another day in the 60s. As a matter of fact, our afternoons will be in the 60s all week. Wednesday & Thursday may warm near 70°.
We’re keeping an eye on the wave shown by the dip in the white flow lines just west of KC on Thursday. Can you see it over the Panhandle of Texas/Oklahoma? This is the next disturbance to track over the KC area Thursday night & Friday:
This disturbance should help trigger a few showers south and east of KC Thursday night/Friday. We couldn’t, however, rule out the chance for some sprinkles in KC. For now, we’re going with a dry forecast through Thanksgiving weekend in KC. If that should change, we’ll let you know.
Have a great Thanksgiving. Be sure to check out the winter forecast tomorrow at 6 p.m. The Plaza lighting is Thursday evening. Last year Gary danced the hula, I wonder what he’ll do this year!
