The Changing Pattern

Good morning bloggers,

I will say it again, we are in a massively changing pattern. This next ten day stretch is when the new LRC takes over and we say good bye to the old pattern.  I already know, if you live near KC, that we are all ready for something new and different.  This was the worst pattern ever, and we are almost done with it.  Just this weekends weather, even though it is still fascinating and will be fun to watch develop, it is still frustrating with the amount of precipitation that will be produced.  Today, we get a wind shift to the north, and yet it is still going to surge to near 70 degrees before it turns cooler this evening with a few rain showers.

Look at how cool it is at 1 PM on this model run jus north and west of KC. This cooler air will arrive as the sun is setting this evening with rain showers possible.  And, then Saturdays forecast is complicated by a returning warm front, clouds, and very little rain:


The above map shows the rainfall total ending at 1 PM Saturday, and then, oh boy, look at the total by the 13th of October, and 90% of this falls near the end.  This would be something very new and different, and likely still just fantasy.


Last year, we got fooled by the October rains that fell along and east of I-35.  It is how the storm systems form, track, and kick out that matters most. So, hang on for the ride.

Have a great Friday Night In The Big Town! And, go to the Weather2020.com blog to join in the conversation.
