Heat Wave #3 Has Started

Good morning bloggers,

Let’s begin with the break of the heat wave. There is a good chance of a cold front moving across the area this weekend which will bring some nice relief in around 6 to 7 days.  Between now and then it will be quite hot and KCI Airport will make a run at its first 100 degree reading in almost five years.  The models also have some rain on them when that front approaches this weekend, but most of us know what has happened with this pattern since October.  Here are the rainfall totals in 2018:




The models are coming in today with some wet weather close by, but also close by is the bulls-eye of dry weather over the next week as well.  Here is one of the models, the European Model rainfall output for the next ten days:

There is an anticyclonic pattern to the precipitation.  The first chance of rain is still many days away.  Have a great day.  Join in the conversation over on the Weather2020 blog.
