Early Saturday AM September 24th Update – T-Storm Chances For the Rest of the Weekend

Good early Saturday morning, everyone. I wanted to give you a quick update on how the rest of the weekend is shaping up. We started the weekend on a dry and warm note, but we will have to start dealing with t-storm chances today. As of this early Saturday morning, any rain and t-storms on the radar below is staying well off to our west…

The storms out west have been lining up along and ahead of our next cold front. It’s been waiting in the wings for most of this week, but it’s now starting to work in here. You can see the front pushing into western Kansas on the surface map below…

We’ll still be ahead of front to start the day, so we’ll start on a quiet note this morning with lows near 70. We start mostly sunny by sunrise, but we’ll have skies turn partly sunny during the afternoon. As the front edges closer, it’ll interact with our warm environment to trigger some t-storms around the area. If you’re wondering about when to keep an eye on t-storms, they should start popping up anytime after 2 or 3 PM this afternoon…

Before any t-storms can get going, I think we’ll have another warm day all around the area. I expect afternoon highs to top out around 87 in Joplin. Outlying areas should be in the middle to upper 80s…

The front will start to actually pass over the area as we go into Saturday night and into Sunday. With that said, plan on the clouds and t-storm chances sticking around for later tonight and into Sunday. With the Future Track below depicting storms around for Sunday under partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies, we should only top out in the upper 70s for highs on Sunday…

After we get the front out of here late Sunday night and early Monday morning, that will take the t-storm chances out of here. Behind the front, fall-like air punches in to get the new work/school week underway. We’ll be talking about upper 60s and lower 70s for highs Monday and Tuesday with lows ranging between the upper 40s and lower 50s. That will certainly make it feel like fall around here! We’ll slowly warm through the 70s for the rest of the week ahead, but we should keep things quiet. Don’t forget that Doug has you covered with the long-range forecast and his latest thoughts on the pattern over on headypattern.com

Have a great Saturday, everyone!

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Here is your 7-day forecast:

Remember that you can sign up for WeatherCall by clicking the WeatherCall link at the top of the page. WeatherCall, in our opinion, is the best tool on the market to keep you safe during severe weather.

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

Next Week:  A much cooler start to the week with dry conditions.  We will slowly warm up through the week but still great temperatures all week long.

October 2nd-8th:  The first half of the week will be on the warm side with rain chances on Tuesday and Wednesday.  This system will cool our temperatures down for the rest of the week.
