Good morning bloggers,
The weather pattern is now fairly calm across the United States. For storm chasers this has been about as quiet of a year that I can remember, but it isn’t over yet. The pattern continues to cycle as described by the LRC and we are expecting two more active stretches of days before summer settles in. These are due in late this month into the first few days of June, and then around mid-June. The jet stream will continue to weaken and eventually summer will take over ending traditional tornado season.
While the weather pattern has calmed down, it is beginning to show signs of developing a tropical storm before the beginning of traditional hurricane season on June 1. One part of the cycling pattern that we are forecasting to develop tropical activity is arriving in this next week, and right on schedule there is a system to monitor closely.
Thunderstorms were beginning to get a bit more organized over the Caribbean Sea. This has been a target area for development and a track towards the north since October by applying the LRC. The most likely track will be north making landfall between New Orleans and Tampa Florida. Let’s see how this develops. The Weather2020 forecast from 50 to 200 days before, by using the LRC, is better than the ones issued five days out from NHC or the SPC. This is yet another example. Hurricane season is likely about to emerge this week.
For Kansas City, we have another beautiful late spring day. We are now just four weeks from the first day of summer. It has been a warm month of May, after a cold April. These above average temperatures are continuing for a while. There is a chance of thunderstorms Thursday into Saturday, with the best chance expected around Friday morning. There may be a complex of thunderstorms moving our way from the northwest Thursday night. Let’s see how this sets up tomorrow.
Have a great day and thank you for sharing with us on the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC. Go over to the Weather2020 blog to join in the conversation and we can discuss the latest model trends on this potential early tropical storm. It would be named Alberto.
