One System Down, Two to Go

Good Sunday bloggers,

We continue to track three storm systems. The first one will exit today, but not before we have drizzle and a few showers this morning. The second system will affect Monday and the third system will affect Thursday. This third system is most interesting.

You can see all three systems on the satellite.


This first system extends north-south about 1150 miles from Lake Superior to south Texas. We are on the southwest side of the main system and we are seeing drizzle and a few showers rotating into eastern Kansas and western Missouri.


SUNDAY AFTERNOON: The rain will be gone as the clouds linger. It will be breezy from the west at 10-20 mph with temperatures in the 40s.


MONDAY MORNING: Storm system #2 will already have an effect as areas of light to moderate rain move in from the west. This rain may very well affect the morning rush hour. Lows will be 40°-45°.


MONDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING: Drizzle and scattered showers will linger with highs stuck in the 40s. We are expecting a new .10″ to .25″ with this system. A few locations may see .25″ to .50″. This system is a fast mover and will exit by Election Day.


ELECTION DAY MORNING: It will be mostly clear and dry with lows 35°-40°. The wind will be west at 5-15 mph.


ELECTION DAY AFTERNOON: We will have great voting weather with highs in the 50s, a west wind 5-15 mph and areas of high clouds.


Now we turn our attention to Thursday and storm system #3. We are going to show two different solutions and actually this first one is in the minority.

It will be cold enough to support snow Thursday. So, the questions are, “will there be a storm system to generate snow?” And, if there is a storm system, “where will it track?” All the data seems to have the storm system. But there are varying opinions on the track.

This solution has  a smaller system that tracks south of I-70.


This solution has a much bigger storm system and widespread snow as you can see. It is this second solution that is actually in the majority. It is four days out and still so much can change. Stay Tuned!


Have a great week.
