A warm start to the week & a look at the East Coast blizzard

VisSat

After a cloudy, cold, & windy day, we’ll turn things right around on Monday. While we dealt with the clouds, there was sunshine today in Western Kansas. Had this system been more to our East, we would have been in that sunshine & mild air.

We should be in the mid to upper 50s for Monday & Tuesday. . . . → Read More: A warm start to the week & a look at the East Coast blizzard

Same system giving us showers will be an East coast monster

The clipper system swinging through the area today isn’t going to do a whole lot for us when it comes to overall moisture. We’ll see the drizzle and showers, but that’s about it. It will, however, open the door for strong wind from the Northwest and blanket us in clouds. So in short: today will be . . . → Read More: Same system giving us showers will be an East coast monster

Clipper system Sunday, warm front Monday

9:15p Update

Light band of showers moving over the Metro area right now. So far, I have not heard a peep from anyone on seeing anything of significance. No response on Twitter or Facebook when I asked either. So this stuff must be very light and/or just not making it all the way to the ground.

Perhaps it’s . . . → Read More: Clipper system Sunday, warm front Monday

Mild weekend with a slim shower chance

SATURDAY MORNING UPDATE
=====
There appear to be some changes in the track and location of that weak clipper system for Sunday. Based on the new guidance I’ve seen this morning (the first I’ve seen since Friday morning), the area of low pressure appears to slide by closer to Kansas City.

Obviously, this means the Sunday forecast will go . . . → Read More: Mild weekend with a slim shower chance

Record snow in Texas; bone-dry here

Good morning, all.

While today will be the coolest day we’ve seen this week, it will STILL wind up being above the average! Incredible.  Part of the reason we’ll be cooler is due to the lack of sunshine. We can blame that on the storm system that is putting down snow in parts of Texas and Oklahoma. . . . → Read More: Record snow in Texas; bone-dry here

Where is the snow?

Good evening bloggers,

There has been a rather pronounced cold phase of this year’s pattern and a counteracting warm phase. This was in our winter forecast when we made the prediction for a milder winter, not just here in Kansas City but for most of the nation. Take a look at this past month:

Good Wednesday bloggers,

We remain in a very calm weather pattern.  There is little to no precipitation in the forecast for at least 7-10 days.  Today through Friday will be dry with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s.  A small, but potent storm system will affect the southern Plains the next 24 hours.  The . . . → Read More: Bor…Ing

Good Tuesday bloggers,

We have a little weather action to track, but the storm systems are small.  First, today will be about 10-15 degrees cooler than Monday, but still 10-15 degrees above average as highs reach around 50°.

A weak storm system is now moving across southern Kansas with light rain, while bringing us clouds.  These clouds will . . . → Read More: Southern Plains Storm

Good Martin Luther King Jr. day,

The weather pattern has been rather tame the last several days and that will continue the next several days.  We will have some subtle changes and we will go through them here.  First, a look at the satellite picture tells much.  The systems moving across the USA are small and weak, . . . → Read More: A Calm Weather Pattern

Mild Monday, weak cold front Tuesday

Highs today hovered around the 60° mark for most locations. While we fell just a hair short at KCI, I still ask you this question: can you really tell the difference between 59° and 60°? It’s all really just psychological and a matter of paper stats.

In any event, we look to do a repeat for Monday, . . . → Read More: Mild Monday, weak cold front Tuesday
