Good morning bloggers,
Is it possible that Kansas City is going to have another very dry winter? In our winter forecast we forecasted a dry season, but how dry could it be? Take a look at the past 30 days:
Just look at these two maps above. It has been an incredibly dry past 30 days across large chunks of the United States. And, it has also been a warm past 30 days as you can see on the map on the right. This pattern has now set up; it is firmly established and showing very little signs of being able to produce wet storm systems west of the Mississippi River, with the exception of areas out across the Pacific northwest.

This is a very dry weather forecast through December 20th. Kansas City has been in, what could be called, a snow drought for three winters in a row already. Just look at last years snowfalls, only five measurable snows all winter. Could this year be worse?
Here is a video explaining this pattern:
Maybe there will be some twists and turns to this cycling pattern. But, right now it is about as boring as it can be? Let us know if you have any questions or comments. Go over to the Weather2020.com blog and join in the conversation. Have a great day!
