Two Small Systems the Next 7 Days

Good Sunday bloggers,

We are having some great fall weather and it will last most of the next week with a few exceptions.

It has been a rather active month of October and look what it has done to the drought east of the Rockies.  There is virtually no more drought across the eastern 2/3 of the USA. We will see if the new pattern can take care of the western drought.


A surface high pressure moved across Iowa this morning. The clear sky, dry air and light wind took temperatures down to the low 20s near the high. The wind blows clockwise around around high pressure and the south winds bring in warmer air. Western Kansas saw temperatures in the mid 40s. This is a sign of warmer air moving in to our area.


SUNDAY AFTERNOON: It will be sunny with an increasing south wind to 10-20 mph. Yes, the wind will be Chiefs red! Highs will be around 60°.


SUNDAY EVENING: The temperatures will not drop much after sunset as the south winds continue. So, for the game, temperatures will be around 50°. However, the 10-20 mph south breeze will make it feel cool.


MONDAY: It will not be as cold to start, as the south winds will keep lows in the 40s. Highs will be 65°-70°. A weak cold front will move through Monday night, so Tuesday will be sunny with highs in the low 60s.


WEDNESDAY-THURSDAY: The first of two systems will move through, bringing clouds and a few rain showers. The area of rain to the west will weaken as it approaches, but we should see some showers. Highs will be in the 50s. The heavy rain across Texas will be due in part to the remnants of major hurricane Willa, now south of the Mexican coast. (CAT 1 as of Sunday morning). This heavy rain will track across the southern USA.


NEXT WEEKEND: The second system to keep an eye on will be coming from the northwest. It may bring a period of rain Saturday or Sunday and does not look like a big storm system at this time.



Total rainfall the next 7 days will be in the .10″ to 1.00″ range.



Have a great week.
