Good Tuesday night bloggers,

The weather is quite active across the USA as we are tracking a big storm system now moving out of the Rockies and a category 3 hurricane.

At 4 PM there was a large Tornado Watch in effect, but luckily no warnings.

The line of thunderstorms that moved through KC between 4 PM and 5 PM ends the severe threat as it tracks across your location. Snow is falling across northwest Kansas, northeast Colorado and western Nebraska.  What a fall storm!

We will see periods of rain through the night as it tracks north behind the line in association with the main storm lifting out of the Rockies.

Here is the latest on Michael. It looks like Michael will enter the Florida panhandle as a category 3 around 1 PM Wednesday. It will likely enter between Panama City and Fort Walton beach.

Now lets get to the forecast.

WEDNESDAY MORNING: The cold front will be moving by and we will see temperatures drop to around 50°. A shower may be lingering early in the morning.

3

Snow will be flying across the northern Plains as our rain comes to an end.

4

While snow is flying in the northern Plains, hurricane Michael will be nearing the Florida panhandle.

5

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON: It will be breezy, dry and cool with a mostly cloudy sky around here. Micheal will be slamming the Florida panhandle.

6

THURSDAY: This will be the nicest day of the week as a smaller system in the Rockies heads our way for Friday. Friday may see light rain and highs in the 40s.

7

Have a great night and Wednesday.

This Won’t happen but it’s fun for the blog. The fv3 has been unimpressive imo and as f00 said yesterday has an unreliable cold bias.

What are the chance of an October Surprise this year?

For a really good writeup of what’s going on weatherwise here’s an excellent read. Much more detailed than what we ever get on this blog. Anymore, what is here is nothing more than advertising for LRC. If you want real discussion of what’s going on weatherwise, search elsewhere. Sorry Gary, but your blog has devolved into nothing. Just saying.

BREAKING Hurricane Michael dramatically intensifying right now….many mets think its a already a CAT 4 – on satellite achieving the “buzzsaw” look

Bombogenisis !?

Nope, RI (rapid intensification) due to the very warm waters. Hopefully, it weakens dramatically prior to or at landfall. The panhandle has see its share of bad storms this year beginning with the tornado in cycle 5

I would like to see a winter storm experience bombogenesis this year 😀

nobody is predicting any weakening at all prior to landfall, which is a mere 12 hrs away

Surprisingly, there has never been a category 4 hurricane making landfall on the Florida panhandle.

I’ve been enjoying warmth out on Cape Cod and now in Worcester. Just worried about all of the rain/flooding back home. Saw that Tomahawk Creek was flooding Prairie Village and others in the area too. Yikes, it will be chilly when I arrive back in KC tomorrow. Not ready for the cold and neither is my gas bill!

Something is supposed to happen this weekend. What’s with all of these negative people. We just received more rain than we’ve had all summer and then out of the corners come the roaches saying ‘old pattern’.
