Good Saturday evening, everyone. Well, we certainly had a nice day in terms of the skies staying quiet and afternoon highs topping out in the lower 80s. However, there was one thing that was on the minds of many in our area and that one thing even served as a wake-up call for us this morning…
A 5.6 magnitude earthquake occurred near Pawnee, OK and it was an earthquake for the record books. The quake tied the strength of the Prague, OK earthquake that took place almost 5 years ago. Not only did we feel it here in our area, but it was felt across 13 states…
Last count I did, the earthquake was felt from people across at least 13 states! The quake served as a wake-up call for a friend of mine who lives in Texas while the reports went as far north as Minnesota, west past Garden City and as far east as Paducah in Kentucky. Hopefully, the ground remains calm for quite a while as we stay quiet tonight. There are t-storms on the radar below late this evening, but they shouldn’t make it in here tonight…
Our setup below keeps us quiet for the rest of the holiday weekend. We’ll have a southerly wind start warming things up a little more tomorrow and especially on Labor Day. The cold front out west won’t be an issue for us until late in the week. As that front works in, we’ll see t-storm chances pick up Thursday, Friday and taper off early on Saturday…
Until those rain chances work in, it’s smooth sailing tonight and for tomorrow. We’ll start near 60° for Sunday morning and keep the skies mostly sunny throughout the day. With that and a south breeze at 5-10 mph, afternoon highs will peak at about 85°…
We look great for Labor Day as well. We are set to return to the lower 90s Monday afternoon, but we keep things quiet once again from sunrise to sunset….
We stay quiet for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the lower 90s. We’ll keep an eye on that next system out west. That’s set to bring t-storm chances in Thursday through Friday and into Saturday morning. We’ll see if we can get another little blast of fall air in here by next weekend behind the front.
Have a good night and a great Sunday!
