Good morning bloggers,
The sun set at the North Pole yesterday, and it was likely finally the beginning of something different beginning to happen. The weather pattern is cycling and regularly according to the LRC. From around October 5th to November 30th the weather pattern becomes established and the first cycle of next years pattern will begin. Right now, between the Autumnal Equinox and October 5th it is twilight at the North Pole, and the pattern is likely in a massive transition. It was identified as nearly 100% the same pattern as of this past weekend, and the rainfall pattern that just happened was still similar to what has been happening in the past year. Something new may finally be showing up.
This surface map is valid Friday night. There are some new things happening over North America, but this is the transition period. This is not the new weather pattern, so as I have clearly shown over the past 20 years or so, when you jump to conclusions on what is happening in these next two to three weeks, then you will likely be wrong. So, just be patient and watch it set up. There is a cold front that will be extending from southern Canada to near KC by Friday evening with a chance of thunderstorms. There is a weaker system approaching tonight with a chance of some thunderstorms as well. There is also a pretty cold air mass forming in western Canada that will be monitored for a strong cold front next week. Some of the models have a freeze over parts of Nebraska and Iowa in the first week of October, so let’s monitor this closely.
There is a fairly deep trough forecast to form in the upper levels of the atmosphere by Sunday.
The new data is rolling in, and already a bit different. There are some big change in progress. Right now a few showers have formed on the south side of KC. I will have more time later to check in. Have a great day.
