    Thanks Jeff
    Have a great rest of the week ? Is this the last blog until the weekend ?

    Staying cool, hopefully.
    a.c. is definitely working overtime.

    The 2020 blog goes to pot when Gary is gone.

    Go over to the kshb blog, which is where it is written.
    There is only one blog dated June 27. And the “3 inch snowstorm streak may end Thursday” snafu is not in that first paragraph.
    Also there are no problems with the blog jumping up and down because of moving ads !

    The format on 2020 needs a complete overhaul. It all started when they decided to stop charging pay to play here and combine the 2 blogs.

    Complains again

    Do you think this current heat wave is being caused by climate change?

      I’m not Gary, but I don’t think it is. Anyone who has ever lived in the Midwest should know and be used to this.

      Of course he does…he has pledged with other media weather personalities to take up the cause of climate change at all times. He even bought a tie for this!

    A tornado tore threw Eureka, KS on June 26th. It was rated an EF-3.

    According to the NWS, this is the 5th tornado to strike the town and produce damage since 1950! Sheesh!

    • Richard June 28, 2018 at 11:09 am - Reply

      I posted on here right after it happened. Nobody cared. Guess because it was not going to affect us.
      Everyone was commenting about the ef zero that hit Lake Lotawana.
      Wow. 5th one ? That small town is in a hot spot evidently.
      Thanks for that info Roger

    The official temp at the airport is now only (“only”) 93. Makes me wonder if it’s not going to get to 100.

    • Richard June 28, 2018 at 1:55 pm - Reply

      Cloudy up there now. NWS said the cloud cover might prevent it from 100.
      Still 2-3 hrs to go til peak heat

      Also Gerard said last night, the dew point needs to be lower.
      I think you said something like that yesterday too ?

      • KS Jones June 28, 2018 at 3:26 pm - Reply

        It is currently 105° in Manhattan. When the temperature hit 104° at 2PM, the dew point was 70° and the relative humidity was 34%.
        Marysville, which is roughly 40 miles north of Manhattan (as the crow flies) is reporting 95°.

        • KS Jones June 28, 2018 at 3:43 pm - Reply

          Forgot to say, our thermometer (midway between Marysville & Manhattan) says 98°.

      Looks like it still didn’t get up to 100. High was 98, already gone down a degree since then.

    Lawrence has officially hit 100 now; third time this year. I expect the temperature to continue to go up today, possibly to 104. It’s 102 in NW Lawrence.

    KMCI officially just tagged 100.

    This always happens when Gary is gone.

    Sorry Jeff, but it does.

    • Richard June 28, 2018 at 6:46 pm - Reply

      Related posts moving ads. Page is jumping.
      It happens if you go back to any previous blog too. Lame blog format.

      In the meantime it is hot. MT says the heat dome builds even stronger next week.
      So we get a “reprieve” for a day or two, then back to this.
      Jeff said on 810 this morning he does not see any 7-10 stretches of heat waves though, just several 3-4 day stretches.

    Ugh the models are showing less and less of a rain chance from this next front on Saturday night. Once again, everything blows up over Nebraska and Iowa, then disintegrates right before it gets here.

      Too bad critics like MMike show their stupidity and crudeness by bashing people that state facts. My reference to epicenter of dryness was around the 36 highway corridor. One month of near average precip doesn’t fix our long term drought/dryness. And his absurd comment about the river just proves he doesn’t know anything outside is immediate area. A high river just means heavy rains up farther north

      • Three7s June 29, 2018 at 7:32 am - Reply

        I wouldn’t call him stupid, but he does have a tendency of taking things too far when someone says something he doesn’t agree with, especially when the counter-point that was made against him wasn’t necessarily wrong. As has been stated, the area is on the BRINK of a drought, but the immediate area has gotten just barely enough to keep things decent looking. If this heat keeps up, these once a week rains won’t cut it.

        • MMike June 29, 2018 at 10:04 am - Reply

          Three 7’s,

          He says the same thing 6 times a week. Complains all the time and never is happy. Prior to this little heat run, he had a few rains and several days with cooler temps. Be happy for once. Same bellyache every single post.

          I was in St Joe 10 days ago..near by, I promise you it is not the Epic center of a drought. He is so full of drama and over hypes actual reality. Dry up there, sure, but epic drought??

          Have a great weekend.

          • Kurt June 29, 2018 at 1:04 pm - Reply

            You tend to make one unhappy MMike, I try not to refrence stats too often but you seem to pick on me in particular. To me you come across as a pain in the a**. If you don’t like it, ignore and move on. I don’t know what you did near by St. Joseph 10 days ago and really don’t care. Yes, maybe I overplay that the drought; but we’re not wet at all and one month of near average doesn’t fix our long term problem up here.

            Maybe it gets worse and then becomes a more focal point of conversation. It’s really the only thing weather wise that’s happened around the St. Joseph area for the last year and a half. We haven’t had many impacting storms, some heat, some cold but no real flooding rains and have been below normal in terms of precip last year and year-to-date. At some point, it’s going to impact more than subsoil, ponds etc.

            You construe me as not happy, but really you’re assuming things you shouldn’t assume. I’d prefer you ignore my comments and move along with your own life from now on.

      • Richard June 29, 2018 at 8:40 am - Reply

        You are right about the river. It is up due to rains up north.
        JL mentioned it yesterday.

        “Interesting to note that the MO River is near or in minor flood status because of all the ongoing drainage across the upper Midwest from NW IA into SD.
        Some areas up there have had too much rain…while locally we desperately need some rain. You can see the % of normal anomalies on the map below.”

      115? Or is that the projected heat index? All the same but 115 actual high seems high?

      High 115? Or is that the heat index projection. Either way hot.

    Can’t wait for next week’s big cooldown—I’m ready!

    July 1
    Thunderstorm Chances
    81°F / 62°F
    This week will see several chances of thunderstorms as a series of disturbances tracks from the west and northwest out of the Rockies. This doesn’t mean the 4th of July will be a washout, but keep an eye to the sky this week. Temperatures will run mostly below average.

    July 8
    Cold Fronts
    82°F / 63°F
    There will be more than one cold front tracking from northwest to southeast across the region this week, which is unusual for this time of year. These fronts will be accompanied by disturbances, so three to four days will have a good chance of showers and thunderstorms, some severe. Temperatures will run below average.

    Wow..yes! Just read all of July and it looks to be mostly below normal in temperature with lots of rain. What’s up with this?

    • Three7s June 29, 2018 at 9:54 am - Reply

      Pretty sure there is zero chance of that happening.

      • Real Humedude June 29, 2018 at 10:32 am - Reply

        Absolutely atrocious forecast, hate to say it but that’s what the LRC suggested but yet its 100% wrong. Not even close to verifying, the complete opposite of what will actually unfold. There is a strong semi-permanent anticyclone setting up here, that will be very hard to kick out. I say semi-permanent because by the time we get through next week it will have asserted itself 3 times here in past 3 weeks. It never set up here in previous cycles, this is a new twist as Gary would say, and Heady might say its part of new pattern/cycle showing itself. We have heat and dry weather coming, and plenty of both. The anti-cyclone may break down at times as we have seen and present us with a chance or two of storms, but likely wont be enough to knock the drought back. I see it expanding east and south across good chunk of MO going into July.

    The 3″ snowstorm streak This streak may end Thursday, but it will take a drop in the dew points to do so.

    Gonna take more than a drop in the dewpoints to get it to snow.

    Both the GFS and Euro show next week into the following weekend (July 7th/8th) to be in the 90s. Huge anticyclone at the 500mb level. Here’s the GFS 500mb anomaly map for next Friday. Saturday and Sunday it shrinks a little and shifts west over the Rockies.


    Here’s the Euro for the same day/time.


    I think we are going to have an extended stretch of 90+ degree weather.

    • REAL HUMEDUDE June 29, 2018 at 11:55 am - Reply

      Bingo, the 12 week forecast couldn’t be more wrong. It was banking on the April cold snap. Guess what? A million percent wrong, this will be sold as a twist. If the twists are this huge, let’s stop calling it a twist and call it a completely blown LRC pattern anaylsis

    It’s not like the LRC was even right this winter. I mean 21 inches of snow? Not even close.

    No new blog with it just being hot and dry? Anyone have an update on rain chances tomorrow afternoon and night?
