It’s Still Five Days Away

This next storm developing later this weekend into next week looks rather similar to a storm from 50 days ago (this year's pattern is close to 50 days). In the last cycle Kansas City ended up in the perfect spot, and yet it wasn't cold enough which is a difficult one to comprehend. We were in the comma head with up to 3 inches of rain in the area. That part of the pattern is cycling back through next week

Major Winter Storm Is One Week Away

This next week will be a fascinating one as we go from almost straight zonal flow into a major winter storm. Here is a picture someone tweeted out from taking a snapshot of my weathercast at 6 PM.

New York City Travel Band Lifted

For those of us in Kansas City we can't even fathom what just happened. Definition of fathom: Understand after much thought. Here in Kansas City we keep getting the small part of winter storms, and the wet part of the warm side of storm systems this winter. In the past week KC had three winter events totaling around 2 to 3 inches of snow. A few spots had more, but you get my point. It just doesn't seem fair.
