Good late Thursday evening, everyone. I think it’s safe to say this has been the hottest and muggiest day of the summer so far. After starting the day in the upper 70s, we topped out in the upper 90s. Thanks (or no thanks) to the humidity, it felt like it was between 105° and 110° during the afternoon. It looks like Mother Nature will hit the repeat button for us once again. That means a warm and muggy night ahead of us. On the plus side, we’ll keep things quiet on the radar below…
So, we’ll be starting the weekend off on a hot and humid note. I do see a change in the weather setup that’ll allow t-storm chances to return. The main question is… Can those rain chances on the way bring us a break in the heat? My updated forecast is 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 Friday!
Here is your 7-day forecast:
Lets check out the Heady Pattern and your long range forecast.
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.
