Monday Evening August 22nd Update – Rain Chances Working Back In

Good Monday evening, everyone! Nick here with the blog update for tonight. As expected, we trended warmer today but we kept the skies quiet. After starting in the upper 50s and lower 60s this morning, most spots topped out in the middle 80s this afternoon. We had mostly sunny skies for most of the day with not a drop of rain anywhere. That will start to change going into tonight and tomorrow. So far, our Monday evening has been quiet here on the radar below…

Going into early tomorrow morning and Tuesday, we’ll see rain and t-storm chances pick back up. Before that happens, cloud cover will pick back up tonight as an upper level disturbance moves in from the west. You can see the kink (the disturbance) in eastern Kansas as we go into tomorrow afternoon…

The cloud cover will be around for Tuesday morning and there will be some scattered showers by the time we head to work and school…

tuesdayam

By late morning and the start of the afternoon, we should have a break with partly sunny skies over the area. Going into Tuesday afternoon, our disturbance will still be around and that should trigger another round of t-storms. We’re not looking at anything severe, though…

tuesdaypm

If we play our cards right, we should be able to see temperatures top out in the middle 80s Tuesday afternoon in between our rain chances…

tuesdayhighs

We look quiet on Wednesday, but we will have the heat back in by then. Highs will go back into the lower to middle 90s for Wednesday afternoon. Our next system is still set to come in on Thursday and keep some t-storm chances around from Thursday into the weekend. If you want the latest on the long-range forecast and if you’re curious as to what Doug’s is seeing in the months ahead, he has you covered over on headypattern.com.

Have a good night and a great Tuesday!

Nick

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Also we have our free WEATHER APP that lets you access our forecast, blog, radar and weather alerts. I think it’s a must if you own an Apple or Android phone.

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM

August 28th-September 3rd:  Heating up with slight chances for thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday.
