Wednesday night/Thanksgiving Blog: Rain/Thunderstorms/Freezing rain!

Good Wednesday night and Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope you ended up have a great short work week.  Mine has been pretty good!  I am thrilled to have Thanksgiving and Friday off work.  This is actually the first Thanksgiving I have had off work in my 13 years here at KOAM.  I usually have Christmas off, but never both.  My family is heading up to KC to see my sister as she has been fighting the chemo.  She hasn’t been feeling well at all as she had the double mastectomy about a month ago.  Now she has a year treatment of intense chemo to fight, kill and conquer that breast cancer.  I hope she feels well enough to eat a decent Thanksgiving meal.  If you are doing some traveling, or even just local driving, watch out for the weather.  We have a big system working in for us tonight and Thanksgiving.  Take a look at the radar below.

Showers will continue to increase through the overnight and morning hours.  The heaviest rains will push in during the afternoon on Thanksgiving.  We could even see a few random thunderstorms.

Thursday PM

Lets go through time, you can see the heavy rains continue to roll through on Thursday night.

Thursday night

Also check out the winds.  At this time we have the switching to the north as a strong cold front is pushing through.  This means we will have a midnight high in the mid 50s on Friday, but our afternoon high will be around 36-38 degrees.  Lets jump into Friday.

Friday noon

In the pink you can see freezing rain.  The best chances for some freezing rain will be in Yates Center, Chanute, Iola, Fredonia and Neodesha.  We could see some slick roads in these locations.  This will continue into Saturday as another surge of moisture works in.

Saturday

Also look at rainfall amounts.  I think most areas will pick up 2-3″ of rain.

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 THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES

Next Thursday:  Chilly with slight chances for rain.

Next Friday:  Cool and partly sunny.

Next Saturday:  Mild with slight chances for rain.

December 6th-12th:

A chilly start to the week with rain and snow chances to start the week.  Mild temperatures will return for the second half of the week with rain chances returning for the weekend.

December 13th-19th:

Mild with rain chances to start the week.  As colder air works in we could see rain or snow by the middle of the week.  Cool temperatures for the second half of the week with a second system and rain or snow chances by the weekend.

December 20th-26th:

Most of the week will be on the cold side with slight chances for snow on Sunday.  Better chances for snow will work in with a storm system on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Staying cool but dry for the holiday.

When I say hot:  90+

When I say warm:  75-89

When I say mild:  60-74

Chilly:  50-60

Cool:  40-50

Cold:  40 and below
