Good Saturday morning bloggers,
After an early winter like Friday, the weekend will return to feeling like fall! Highs today will reach near 60° as winds turn from the west as we sit south of some fast moving weather systems. This will create a down slope affect from the high plains, eroding the cold air mass. See maps #1 and #2
MAP #1: Highs today
MAP #2: Surface map for 3 PM today. Notice the warm front to the west. This will have a role in Sunday’s weather.
The warm front we mentioned above will push through tonight and early Sunday. It is attached to a classic Alberta Clipper. This is another name for a fast moving system tracking southeast out of Canada. When you are located on the south side of these systems it can warm fast, especially when you are in between the trough and the warm front. And, fortunate for us and all of the Chiefs fans, that is right where we are located Sunday afternoon. Highs will reach near 70°! It will be breezy from the southwest with gusts to 20-30 mph, but still a nice day. The cold front will come through Sunday night, making for a colder Monday with highs in the 50s.

Below are the forecasts for some area big football games. MU, KU and the Chiefs.
Have a great weekend! And go Chiefs!
