Good early Friday morning, everyone. We finally made it to the weekend and I think I’m about ready to call it a week. LOL. I’ve lost track of how many times I said we had to keep an eye on t-storms each day this week, but we are almost done with the rain chances before we get a GOOD stretch to dry out. This time around, we don’t have any big complexes forming in KS to start this morning. However, we do have some scattered t-storms in NE OK and far SW MO on the radar below…
We still have the same frontal boundary hanging around our area, so we’ll have to keep an eye on t-storm chances this afternoon and this evening. To start the day, though, most spots will start dry as we head to work. Most of the morning and early afternoon should be partly sunny and quiet. It won’t be until after 2 or 3 PM that we’ll have to watch for another round of t-storms to develop and try to work into parts of our area…
Before we see any afternoon t-storms try to get going, the partly sunny skies and light east breeze should mean highs today will top out near 88°…
There is a low severe threat just west of the area, but I expect the severe threat to mainly stay out of here today. As we see storm chances again this afternoon and evening, the storms should stay just below severe limts. I’ll keep my eyes on everything as we go through today, as usual. We’ll have another shot of scattered t-storms as we go into Saturday afternoon…
Even with scattered t-storms for Saturday afternoon, we should get highs back into the upper 80s and maybe some spots will top out near 90…
Starting Sunday and continuing through much of next week, we will keep things quiet with partly to mostly sunny skies. Even though we get a good chance to dry out and get a break from t-storm chances, the heat will return next week. We’ll start with lower to middle 90s from Sunday through Tuesday. If nothing changes by the end of next week, I wouldn’t be surprised if we went into the middle to upper 90s.
Don’t forget that Doug has you covered with his latest thoughts on the pattern and the long-range forecast. You can get all of that over on headypattern.com
Have a good day, everyone!
LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:
Here is your 7-day forecast:
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
July 22nd-23rd: We should stay dry and on the hot side as we go into the weekend.
July 24th-30th: The first half of the week will be warm with scattered thunderstorms. The second half of the week will be hot and dry.
