Good Saturday bloggers,
This is the first weekend since November 10-11 that we are not tracking snow. Now, it did snow 1/2″ on November 12th. So, really you can go back to the weekend of November 3-4 since we did not track snow during a weekend.
A large storm this weekend, that earlier in the week we thought could track up to near I-70, is well south. The center of the upper level storm system early Saturday was south of Lubbock, TX. The storm will track east and not northeast, leaving our area in a calm and cold weekend.
Today will be mostly sunny with highs in the 30s along with a light east wind. We will have a few high clouds from the extreme northern fringe of the southern storm.
This is the first weekend since November 3-4 that we are not tracking or having snow in our area. We are officially at 8.3″ of snow for the season and this already exceeds the totals from the last three years. There are two storm systems to track next week.
SUNDAY: It will start very cold with lows 10°-15°, so keep that in mind if you are headed to Arrowhead for early tailgating. It will warm to around freezing by kickoff. Highs will reach the mid 30s during the game. At least we will see plenty of sunshine and a light wind.
MONDAY: It will be partly to mostly cloudy with lows in the 20s and highs in the 30s. A weak system will come in from the north, possibly bringing a flurry.
TUESDAY: A brisk south wind will blast the cold air out of the middle of the USA. This will take our highs to the 50s.
WEDNESDAY: This is the timing for the first storm system. The new data is trending for the system to form rain along and east of the Mississippi river. There is just a 20% chance the rain forms far enough west to bring our region some showers.
THURSDAY: This is the timing for the second storm system. This has potential to be a bigger and wet storm system, but the data from overnight suggests a much weaker and fast-moving system. That being said, it is still timed for the Charger-Chiefs game. There is much uncertainty here and we will have to track it one day at a time.
Have a great weekend.
