Good morning bloggers,
What a morning…temperatures haven’t been this cool (at KCI) since June 2.
Here’s what to expect for the weekend:
1. Clear with a light north breeze
2. Mornings near 50°
3. Afternoons near 75°
These temperatures are 7-10° cooler than average…all due to the cool air that moved in after yesterday’s cold front. That front is now well to the east and will spawn a severe weather threat from New York City into Albany and Vermont! Below is the Storm Prediction Center’s tornado outlook for today:
The yellow contour indicates a 10% probability for a tornado within 25 miles of any given point. A reminder, as things t-storms push through that area 3pm-12am, you can jump on to tornadoalleylive.com and check out live video feeds from any storm chasers. FYI, New York state averages 10 tornadoes per year…whereas Kansas averages 96 and Missouri averages 45.
Our overall weather pattern shows a brief ridging Tuesday/Wednesday of next week. We’re going with 90s for both of those days:
But this is September, not July. The ridging won’t last very long over KC, and a cool blast will follow for late next week. It should be even cooler than this weekend.
As the front approaches, a chance for rain moves in for Thursday:
Right now it looks like it could be similar to what we saw yesterday. A few hours of rain, less than an inch. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated. Also, we’re heading out to the Overland Park Convention Center for the LiveWell Expo. Check us out!
