Good Sunday bloggers,
The weather is quite active on this last day of summer and we are looking at a fantastic first day of fall. There will be many weather transitions before fall arrives at 2:50 AM.
There are two main weather features to track before fall arrives. The first is a well defined disturbance tracking in from the southwest. Rain and a few thunderstorms, very heavy at times with flash flooding possible, will occur with this system. After it moves by around 10 AM, it will take the widespread heavy rain with it.
The second weather feature is a cold front. This will cross the region between 2 and 5 PM bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms. Look at the temperatures behind the front. Yes, we could see upper 40s and low 50s by Monday morning.
SUNDAY 3 PM: The cold front will be near Arrowhead towards the end of the game. So, it will be quite wet for tailgating, but during the game there will be some nice periods and some very heavy downpours and some lightning. Temperatures will warm to the low and mid 70s ahead of the front. Then, temperatures will drop to the 60s this evening under a mostly cloudy sky as the front moves away. The rain chances will end with the passage of the cold front.
As of 7 AM we have seen between .50″ and 2″ of rain. Most locations will see a new 1″-2″ of rain today bringing storm totals to 1″-4″ which we have been forecasting.
MONDAY 7 AM: The first fall morning will feel like it. Look at the lows in the low to mid 50s, with upper 40s across northeast Kansas and northern Missouri.
MONDAY AFTERNOON: A surface high pressure will drift across the region making for a very nice first day of fall. It will be sunny with lower humidity and almost no wind. Highs will be in the 70s.
Have a great week ahead.
