The Massive Change In The Pattern Continues

Good morning bloggers,

The old LRC continues today, and the 2018-2019 cycling weather pattern begins later this week. I say “Goodbye old pattern, we will not miss you”.  There is a front near KC this morning, in the new pattern it would likely be creating showers and thunderstorms, rather wide spread.  We just aren’t there yet.

1This morning is already interesting. There is a front near Kansas City with nothing on radar.  It is cloudy, humid, and the front is stationary. By this evening, the front will lift north in response to the changing overall weather pattern.

2By Wednesday morning, the old and new pattern are morphing together and the surface pattern is unlike anything I have seen.  South winds are taking over and it will be surging to near record high temperatures the next two days.  A front will be organizing over the northwestern United States.  The front is about to begin surging southeast near Great Falls, Montana.  This front will swing through Kansas City by Thursday morning.

3By 7 PM Wednesday, the front will be passing through Omaha, NE.  A high pressure area will be expanding over Montana and a cold air mass will be surging our way.  What happens next is even more fascinating. A major storm is forecast to develop over the western United States in the upper levels of the atmosphere by later this next weekend.  This is the massive change that we have been discussing.  A band of showers and thunderstorms is likely Wednesday night into Thursday morning. The front will then stall and lift slowly back to the north Thursday night and Friday.
