Good Saturday afternoon! I hope your weekend is going great so far. Mine is ok except for the killer migraine I am fighting today and really all week long. Hey, what is new for me. However, I am feeling a little better now and getting some stuff done. I need to get some work done and things around the house. Plus tomorrow is the big V-Day and trust me boys, don’t forget about that, lol.
I am extremely bored with the weather. We are right on track with the Heady Pattern, but we are just in the bad part of the pattern. It is going to get active here in the next week to two weeks when the ridge out west breaks down, but until then we just have these fast moving weak little guys pushing through. All they have done for us is just played with our temperatures. Again we have another weak little system working through this weekend. We have cooler temperatures with clouds which have been increasing. We also have snow picking up across the northern plains and setting up across central and eastern MO where they have seen numerous bands over the past couple weeks. I will have to go into why this has occurred on my other blog later today. Take a look at the radar below.
Clouds will continue to increase for us today with temperatures near 40. If you are heading out tonight for dinner or maybe a movie it looks fine as we should be dry. However, late tonight, we will see a little light freezing drizzle setting up.
The blue shows light snow, pink is freezing drizzle, the green is light rain. We have a window from about 2am-8am to see a little freezing drizzle as temperatures will sit near 30 degrees. So there could be a few slick spots on the roads. However, I don’t think this will be a huge deal. As temperatures warm a bit during the morning hours, any moisture will switch over to light showers.
Also by the middle of the morning hours, this will be sliding SE pretty quickly and pushing out of the region. This is a weak system because and just can dig and get any moisture.
You can see the dominant wave is across Iowa. The second weaker wave is in Arizona. If this system was stronger and could have dug across the SW, the Arizona wave would have been dominant and this system would have gotten a lot of moisture and this could have been a big system. We won’t see any big systems for a good week across the region. In fact we really warm up this week. Look at temperatures later this week.

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 THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES
Next Week: Warming back up at the beginning of the week. Another system rolls in Thursday through Saturday. At this time it looks like mainly rain but something to watch.
Feb 21st-27th: A cool start to the week with very slight chances for snow on Monday and Tuesday. Warming up for the second half of the week with rain chances on Friday and Saturday.
Feb 28th-March 5th: Rain or snow chances to start the week. Turning colder and mainly dry through the week.
