Late Saturday PM March 5th Update – Sunday’s Quiet Before Rain Chances Pick Up

Good Saturday evening, everyone. We continued on our nice, mild stretch today with afternoon highs in the upper 60s to near 70° under partly sunny skies. We’re on track for another mild and quiet day for Sunday before our next system works in. Until that does, we’re quiet and dry on the radar below…

What system will give us the rain chances as we go into the week ahead? It’s still out in the western United States, soaking Oregon, Washington state and California with MUCH needed rain. That front will ultimately push east and set up shop across the Central Plains for much of this coming week…

Before that system gets closer, we’ll have another mild, dry and breezy day with partly sunny skies. With that on tap for Sunday, it’s not a good idea to do any outdoor burning until we get some moisture in here. It’ll be mild again Sunday with highs near 70° around Joplin. It’s possible that some spots will top out in the lower 70s Sunday afternoon…

Monday is when we’ll see the rain and t-storms start to pick up as the system out west sneaks closer. In fact, Monday and Tuesday look like a good chance to pick up some t-storms over the next several days. Have a look at the Future Track below Tuesday afternoon…

If that holds up, we could see some strong storms possible for Monday and Tuesday. Doug and I will continue to keep an eye on that potential. Beyond Tuesday, we’ll continue with rain and t-storm chances Wednesday all the way through next weekend. We could use the rain chances since we’re behind for the year by over four and a half inches. Mother Nature certainly looks like she’ll let us play catch-up this coming week with 2-4″ of rain possible in our area by the end of next Saturday…

If we can’t spread the rain out evenly throughout the next several days, we may have to deal with flash flooding concerns later on. We’ll keep an eye on that setup as we continue into the week ahead. Despite the rain chances, we’ll continue with mild temperatures in the 60s to near 70 throughout the week. For the latest on Doug’s pattern and the long-range forecast, Doug has you covered on headypattern.com.

Have a good night and a great Sunday!

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Here is your 7-day forecast:

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

March 13th-19th:  Mild with scattered storms on Monday and then again Wednesday and Thursday.  Cooler but dry the rest of the week.

March 20th-26th:  Warm with thunderstorms on Sunday and Monday.  Some of these could be strong to severe.  Another system works in on Wednesday with additional strong to severe storms.  The rest of the week will be cool and dry.
