Early Week System to Watch

Good Sunday bloggers,

Cool air will continue to dominate today as winds come from the north.  It was 65 to 70 this morning from Springfield to St. Louis, but the cooler air is heading that way.  A disturbance has been producing scattered showers this morning across northeast Kansas and northern Missouri.  This will exit by the afternoon.

Here was the set up from 7 AM Sunday.  Dallas was 72° and the Chiefs play there this afternoon where it will be around 90°!


SUNDAY: Our cold front will be approaching Dallas during the game, but my goodness, near 90°. There is still no reason the Chiefs can’t win, as long as they stop the run!


SUNDAY: Now back to the weather and back to our region. We will have a cloudy and dry afternoon with temperatures hovering around 50°. The sky will be clearing from north to south.


MONDAY MORNING: The week will start with a partly to mostly cloudy sky and lows in the 30s.  There will be a northeast breeze at 5-15 mph.  We will be turning our attention to the west as a small storm system moves into the Rockies.


MONDAY AFTERNOON: Highs will be in the 40s with a northeast breeze 10-15 mph along with areas of clouds.


TUESDAY: The system in the Rockies will be showing itself as an area of snow and some mixed rain in western Kansas.  Tuesday night and Wednesday this system will track southeast, so we will have to watch it closely as if it tracks farther north we could see a rain-snow mix Tuesday night and Wednesday.  The chance in our area is 20% at this time.


We had the showers this morning with amounts trace to .10″, but since October 22nd it has been relatively dry.  So, we do not really need moisture as the event October 21-22 brought 2″ to 4″ of rain, but within the next 10 days it would be nice to see about .50″. There are chances, the one Tuesday-Wednesday and there is a possible system for next weekend. We do not see any big cold blasts or big storm systems at this time, however.


Have a great week and GO CHIEFS!

    It’s back ? The mid week storm with a winter component that Gary mentioned last week.
    Might come back as a Christmas week storm ? If it is a 45 day cycle makes it Dec 23.

    Why is it at 4 AM this morning the 7 day showed 60s and mid 50s for highs, now it shows low 50s and 40s for highs? Quite a difference between meteorologists at the station there!

    I know this pattern is throwing everyone off… word on the street is we may not see the sun until March? 🙂

    Here is an excellent slide show covering the causes/effects of global climate change. It’s in PDF format when you open it. It also outlines contrarian views. Are you a denier, waffler, or a surrenderer? Just some food for thought.

    HRWF-ARW and CMC hint at snow tomorrow. GFS, NAM have it all breaking up. Models can’t even figure out what tomorrow’s storm will do so how can we even begin to trust them 10 days out for showing “snow next week”…

    Models have been horrible with this LRC. Just horrible.
