More 70s then Reality

Good Monday.

Well, we had some rain, but amounts were paltry.  The rest of today will be cloudy with highs in the 60s, perhaps 70° if the sun pops out.  If we do reach 70°, then today will be the 5th consecutive day with highs 70° or higher which would break the record.  Tuesday and Wednesday will see temperatures soar back into the 70s, close to 80° Wednesday.  Then, a storm system moves by Thursday and behind that we will have a reality check.  Click on the video below for an in depth look at the upcoming changes in the weather.

Increasing Rain Chances

Good Sunday,

Our dry spell is now 26 days, but that has potential to come to a screeching halt.  The new data is strongly leaning towards a round of showers and thunderstorms later tonight.  This is some good news as we will take any rain we can get. Today the humidity will be increasing ahead of the rain event tonight.  This higher humidity is a big ingredient to why we may see more substantial rain in some locations.  Low clouds will be around today as the humidity goes up.  In areas with low clouds highs will be in the low to mid 60s.  Areas of more sun will see highs around 70°.

Changes Around the Corner

Good Saturday,

We are looking at another day in the 70s.  However, today the winds will be 5-10 mph, much less than the last two days, so today will be even nicer than Thursday and Friday.  This is the good news, but we need rain as our dry spell has reached 25 days.  Sunday will be dry with more clouds with highs around 70°.  Then, it looks like early Monday we will see a band of rain with a trace-.25″.  This is not nearly enough rain, but it will temporarily end the fire danger.  Now, winter is NOT over.  We have changes by the end of the week.  You can check out the video below for a more in depth look at these changes.

Elevated Fire Danger

Good Wednesday.

The good news is that we have some great weather the next several days with sunshine and highs around 70°.  The bad news is that is it rather dry, a 22 day dry spell as of today.  Thursday and Friday we will see gusty winds and low humidity and this will create the conditions for fire weather.  A Red Flag Warning may be issued.  This is when fires are ongoing or imminent.  The criteria is for sustained winds 15 mph or greater and humidity 15% or lower and temperatures 75° or higher.  The temperature part of the criteria seems to be flexible, so we could be under a Red Flag Warning Thursday and Friday.  This weekend the humidity will increase and the wind will decrease, so the fire threat will come way down.

21 Day Dry Spell

Good Tuesday and Happy Valentine’s day,

1

We had some sprinkles and a few ice pellets on Monday, but it was not enough to break the dry spell that is now at 21 days.  This dry spell will reach at least 26 days before we have a chance of rain.  This will lead to a high fire danger by Thursday as the wind increases.  This is the bad news.  The good news is that highs will be around 70° Thursday-Monday, so Spring fever will be in full bloom.  Today will see highs 50-55, cooling to the 40s and 30s tonight.  So, take a jacket if you are headed to a romantic dinner!  Wednesday will be a few degrees cooler.

We do see changes next week and increasing chances for some moisture.  Click on the video below for an in depth look at this unseasonable weather pattern.

Happy Valentine’s day,

Jeff

A Few Showers & Mild

Good Monday,

We will see a few showers or sprinkles today, but basically our dry spell will continue.  The main part of the storm will affect the southern Plains where they need the rain as well.  Highs today will be around 50°.  Valentine’s day is looking lovely with highs in the low 50s and areas of high clouds.  A more active pattern is likely next week.  Click on the video below for a more in in-depth look at the weather pattern.

More Mild Weather, Very Little Moisture

Good Sunday,

Today will be a nice February day with highs in the low 50s, however, the wind will be in from the north at 10-25 mph, a bit annoying.  So, it will not be as nice as Saturday, but it is almost impossible to beat the 70° weather and light wind this time of year.  We could use some rain and there is a chance of a few showers Monday evening, but that is it for the week.  Click on the video below for an in depth look at this unseasonable weather pattern.

Mainly Dry Until Further Notice

Good Saturday,

The good news for some is that the weather is very nice for February as we will have highs today in the 60s with periods of clouds.  Sunday will be a decent day, just more wind and cooler with highs in the 40s.  The bad news is that it is getting dry and we had grass fires on Friday and this will only get worse if we do not get any precipitation.  There is a chance for a few rain showers Monday evening and night, but this will not be much.

So, have we seen our last snow?  It was January 5th the last time we had a measurable snow day.  Based on the last 5 winter, we will get at least one more day of snow.  Click on the video below for a more in depth look at this odd winter and forecast for the week.

Few Snow/Sleet Showers and 60s

Good Wednesday,

We have a few snow and sleet showers moving across the region this morning.  They will be gone by 11 am to noon.  Some locations, will be dry, some will see flurries, some will get partially dusted white and a few will get totally dusted white. Here is a picture from St. Joseph sent in by Dwayne Martz.

WEATHER TRACK RADAR 853 am: When the band went through Lawrence, it created some snow blowing around in the road.

THURSDAY: Our little bands of snow showers will evolve into a 6-10″ snowstorm for NYC and Boston Thursday-Friday, AMAZING!

SNOWFALL FORECAST:  Some locations here may see .1″, maybe.  Look at New England.

FRIDAY: Strong south winds will bring warm air rapidly back to our area.  Highs on Friday will climb to around 60°.  Saturday will see temps range from the 50s north to near 70° south depending on the location of a new front.  We may see some drizzle Saturday or rain showers Sunday.

Crazy weather as usual.  That is what I love about KC!

Have a great day.

Temperature Roller Coaster Ride, But Still Dry

Good Tuesday,

Colder air is pouring in as temperatures stay in the 40s with 30s across northern Missouri.  Tonight into Wednesday will see a few areas of snow affect Nebraska, Iowa to far northern Missouri.  If we see a brief snow or sleet shower Wednesday it would not surprise me, but the chance is rather low.  The cold air hangs in there through Thursday night, then it gets blasted away.  Now, we have all of these weather changes, but little to no precipitation.
