Late Friday June 29th – Staying Hot for Saturday With Rain Chances on the Way

Good late Friday evening, everyone. We’re starting to sound like a broken record, aren’t we? Like the past few days, we had another warm start to our Friday morning followed by another hot & humid afternoon. There was a slight improvement, though. Highs only went into the middle 90s this afternoon with a bit less in the way of humidity. Still, the humidity made it feel like it was between 100 and 105 during the afternoon. We’ll go into the overnight hours on a quiet note. Even though the radar below is keeping an eye on rain and t-storms out in western Kansas, none of that will make it here tonight…

With that said, though, that area of rain and t-storms is part of our next storm system that’ll make a run for our area. When can we expect rain chances to pick up? Can it give us a break in the heat? I have those answers in my latest forecast right below…

Don’t forget that Doug has your long-range forecast out through the start of August right below.

Have a good night and a great Saturday!


Here is your 7-day forecast:

Lets check out the Heady Pattern and your long range forecast.

Pattern Background:

The pattern sets up each and every year from September 20th until October 10th.  The pattern is how storm systems will react.  In the pattern, there is a recurring cycle that takes place.  The cycle length can be from 40 up to 65 days long.  If we look at this years cycle, it is about 48 days long.  That means todays weather is similar to 48 days ago and 48 days from now.  I have been working on this pattern since 1999 in college when I noticed a snowstorm in Lawrence, KS had an odd look to it.  We had another snowstorm about two months later that had that same odd look to it.  A couple months later we had a severe weather outbreak that again had that same odd look.  It was the pattern that gave it that odd look, but the cycle that spread these storms out equally.  Since that point in time, I have been working on this pattern and find something new each and every year. 

Long range forecast through July


Next Week:   Mainly a hot week with thunderstorm chances returning from Tuesday through Saturday.  Just pop-up random storms.  This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale. 1’s on each day.
