Slowly Approaching Change

Good Saturday bloggers,

We are in for more very warm to hot and humid weather for this first full weekend of fall.  There is a fall like change about one half a state away, but it is moving at a snails pace.  Also, Maria is still lurking  and we will look at the latest on her as well.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON: Highs will be in the 40s and 50s across the Dakotas, Wyoming and western Nebraska.


SATURDAY AFTERNOON: Our region will see highs around 90° with sunshine and a bit of a breeze. The cooler air is behind a stalled front and that is what is represented by the alternating red and blue sections.

SUNDAY: The front will be on the move, but quite slowly as by tomorrow afternoon the front will still be approaching Omaha with rain and thunderstorms along and behind the front.  Highs in our region will be 85° to 90° with 40s and 50s behind the front.

MONDAY PM/NIGHT: The front will finally be on our doorstep with rain and thunderstorms along and behind the front.  Our best chance of rain is Monday night into Tuesday as the front slips in at the same time a disturbance runs northeast along the front.  The track of the disturbance is critical to where the heavier rain sets up.  There are some signs the heaviest rain will occur from central Kansas to eastern Nebraska, northwest of our area.  If this happens we may see trace-.25″ of rain.  If this sets up farther southeast then we could see around 1″ of rain.  Wednesday through Friday will be dry, cooler and much much less humid with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s.  Friday may see highs in the 60s.




Hurricane Maria was still a category 3 hurricane as of Saturday morning.  She was east of the Bahamas.  The good news is that she is not expected to make anymore direct hits, but may come close to the Carolinas.


Tuesday night and Wednesday Maria will be down to a category 1 and be rather close to North Carolina.  We have to watch this closely as 100-200 miles farther west will make quite a difference.  This is the one main last threat Maria has to offer to land.


The tropics are quieting down a bit, my goodness it is about time.  Tropical Storm Lee is meandering out in the Atlantic.  He may strengthen to a hurricane, but likely not affect any land.  There are disturbances still coming in off of Africa, but there is nothing imminent.  Hurricane season does last until November 30th, so we are likely not done with the hurricanes.


Have a great and safe weekend.
