Good morning bloggers,
The weather pattern is cycling regularly according to the LRC. According to the LRC a unique weather pattern sets up every year between around October 1st and November 30th, and this pattern then cycles through the rest of fall, winter, spring, and summer. The old pattern finally falls apart and the new pattern sets up again the next fall. We are just three weeks away from the very earliest stages of next year’s pattern. Right now we are likely in a transition period that is beginning to affect the overall cycling weather pattern of the Northern Hemisphere. We are experiencing something different right now. Take a look at this mornings surface temperature map from around 6 AM:
There were no freezing temperatures anywhere including some of the higher elevation mountain locations. It has been a warm ending to the season, and this was predicted by our proprietary LRC computer model to happen this month. The average first freeze dates are indicated below:
The far northern plains are due for the first freeze of the season. And, right now it is a pretty warm pattern. There is a cold front that will be developing in the next couple of days and as this moves across the plains it will help produce a line of showers and thunderstorms as it weakens.
This storm system is tracking east along the USA/Canada border later this week. This storm is likely going to go through an occlusion at the surface, where the cold front catches up with the warm front over Minnesota. This type of storm will keep most of the cool air up near that surface circulation up there, but some colder air will get wrapped into this system. For Kansas City, this will likely mean a good chance of a few showers and thunderstorms on Thursday. The timing of the front would need to slow down a bit, or some locations will end up getting missed by the scattered thunderstorms before they organize into an MCS (Mesoscale Convective System).
Have a terrific Tuesday and thank you for sharing in this weather experience.
