Good morning Weather2020 bloggers,

The weather pattern continues to evolve and set up for the season.  Kansas City has passed it’s average first freeze date by a week now and there is not one in sight at the moment. Two cold fronts will move through this week, one tonight, and a stronger one around Thursday, and temperatures may drop into the 30s by Saturday morning, but a freeze is unlikely.  Here is the flow aloft forecast for Thursday night:

There will be a trough swinging east in to eastern Canada by Thursday night, but the jet stream is still far to the north and the cooler air mass will likely not be strong enough to bring freezing conditions as far south as KC.   Here is the surface forecast for Halloween night:

This map, above, shows the forecast at the surface for Halloween night.  That is a band of snow moving across Lake Eerie and Lake Superior behind a cold front, and associated with that upper level trough swinging east across eastern Canada.  A storm will also be moving into the west coast, and the overall flow continues to move from west to east and Pacific air is dominating the pattern for now.

Within ten days the jet stream will be shifting a bit south as you can see below:

The pattern is still showing what it’s potential is for the winter and we will be discussing this a lot more in the coming weeks.  For now, it is a warm and wet pattern that we have just experienced during the month of October.

Have a great day. The weather looks great for games six and seven (if necessary) of the World Series.  Go Royals!

Oh yeah there will be a game 7. KC will be champs. 40,000 fans and KC hungry for a title, they’ll loosen back up after a day off. Once they see their fan base and Ventura on the mound, things will be just fine. What about those Chiefs Sam. You said they weren’t very good several weeks ago. Now, they look legit. Still a bit of a struggle on offense, but they’re scoring points and the defense is ranked #3 right now. That’s saying a lot considering we have played the 3 best offenses in the league. SD-DEN-NE. This Chiefs… Read more »

I’m afraid there won’t be a game 7. The Royals looked very tight last night for the first time in these playoffs. Even if they don’t win it they had a great run and a great season!

Gary when will you know the “new” pattern? Thanks.
