Fantastic Fall Weather, then a Change

Good Saturday bloggers,

We are in for some great weather this weekend as a major storm affects New England and a smaller system tracks southeast out of the northern Rockies. This smaller system will have a minor impact on our weather.

A front and storm system will affect the weather Tuesday and Halloween, so let’s go day by day.

The big storm in the northeast is due in part to the remnants of hurricane Willa that impacted the southwestern Mexican coast last Tuesday.


There is a smaller storm system in the northern Rockies. This system will track into the Great Lakes on Sunday, having a minor impact on our weather.


SATURDAY: It will be near perfect with highs around 70°, The wind will be from the west and southwest at 5-15 mph, a good day to do the leaves. But, is it ever a good day to do the leaves?


SUNDAY MORNING: The storm system from the northern Rockies will be tracking through the Great Lakes with rain in Packer and Bear country. Here in Chiefs country it will be sunny and windy with temperatures warming to around 60° by noon. So, for tailgating it will be dry, mild, but windy.


SUNDAY AFTERNOON: The system will be exiting the Great Lakes as a surface high pressure moves in. This will allow the wind to decrease during the afternoon with highs in the 60s, super Sunday weather!


MONDAY: The work week will start with very nice weather. As we wait for a front and storm system.


TUESDAY: A cold front will move in and this will generate a band of showers and a few thunderstorms from KC east. Highs will be in the 50s and 60s.


HALLOWEEN: We are tracking a storm system from the Rockies. The latest data has trended towards the system staying south and going around our area. This would mean cloudy, dry and in the 40s for trick or treating. At this time there is a 30% chance the storm tracks far enough north to make it rainy for trick or treating.

I have trick or treated in all kinds of weather in KC over the last four decades, and rain is my least favorite.  Warm and humid is my second least favorite.

We will know more tomorrow as let’s see how the data trends.


Have a great weekend.
