Good Saturday bloggers,

We are tracking two storm systems for this weekend. We are not expecting flash flooding or severe weather. The first system is now moving through Kansas and Missouri and will exit this afternoon. The second is now in the northern Plains. This system will track southeast and move through during Mother’s day.

8

SATURDAY AFTERNOON/EVENING: Our system from the morning will be long gone. Clouds will be left as highs reach 55° to 60°. The next system will already be bringing showers and thunderstorms to Nebraska, northwest Kansas and northwest Iowa.

1

MOTHER’S DAY MORNING: A band of scattered showers will be moving through with lows around 50.

2

MOTHER’S DAY AROUND NOON: There may be a few dry hours after the early morning showers. Then, around noon there will be new showers and possibly a thunderstorm as highs climb to 60°-65°.

3

MOTHER’S DAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING: The main system will be twirling by and there will likely be an increase in the coverage of showers and a few thunderstorms. Temperatures will drop to the 50s in rain areas.

4

MONDAY: The system from Sunday exits, making for a nice Monday with highs 65°-70°. The morning may start with low clouds and some fog.

5

RAINFALL FORECAST THIS WEEKEND: When you add up both storm systems, rainfall totals will reach .10″ to 1″. So, there will not be any flash flooding or severe weather.

6

MOTHER’S DAY: At this time it looks like the best times for rain will be early in the morning and after noon. Highs will reach 60°-65°, but in rain areas temperatures will drop to the 50s. So, temperatures tomorrow may be up and down depending on where and when it is raining.

7

Tuesday through Friday will see calmer and warmer weather with highs mostly 75° to 80°. The one main rain chance is later Tuesday into Wednesday.

Happy Mother’s Day and have a great weekend.,

Jeff Penner

I’m not going to get any of my landscaping project done if it’s going to be wet like this all spring and summer. 🙁

Will it be cooler than average and rainy the end of June ?
The LRC says yes.

I am for sure hoping June 26 thru June 29 will be below normal temps. Obviously not expecting 50’s like this current stretch, but hey 70’s in late June would be pretty dang cool. Question is will it happen, or will it be the same but different. Then how about August 13 thru August 16? But may be hard to be really below average for these different dates with a stronger sun angle.

2004 was what I called the “summer that never was”. We had upper 50s with rain on my bday (late July) and the only remotely seasonal heat arrived around Labor Day. The point is we can have 50s during any summer month.

Agree, just not normal, 70’s sure. Now I will take 50’s but then again I would take snow and cloudy days over any day!

I remember that day, I was in a golf Tournament. We played 3 miserable holes before they called it. Coldest Ive ever been in July with the exception of an Alaskan fishing trip.

Watch out for “the same but different!” You’re forgetting one piece of this year’s pattern, which is that odd-numbered cycles are cold and even-numbered cycles are warm. We’re in Cycle 5 right now, late June will be Cycle 6. This “cold blast” we’re in came in December and resulted in a relatively modest lowest temp for the month of 14 on December 9th. Compare to the single-digit temperature recorded in early November (that wasn’t even the result of the coldest part of the pattern). Why so weak? Warm cycle! Similarly, in March (20th-23rd area) we merely had a freeze one… Read more »

Yesterday on kshb Gary said 49. Not 49.5 😉
But you make a good point about every other cycle being cold/warm. Darn.
Oh well it is what it is.
Still loving this May compared to a year ago !
It’s been a nice stretch of cool vs hot.

So is this “Blackberry Winter” we are experiencing now?

The blackberries are blooming now, I would call this blackberry winter myself. Although we dont get one every year, seems like we get one about every other year.

49 days will be end of June. Nice if it will be cooler than average. But will it, and will it be rainy.
LRC says it will.

Mothers Day looks crappy weather wise. Just two days ago it was supposed to be sunny and 70.

In this 1993-esque weather pattern every little ripple/system will produce. Much as I hate to say it I think our REAL heavy rains are yet to come.

The NASCAR race starts at 6:30, will the system be out of there by then?
