Late Saturday PM June 23rd – Some T-Storm Chances Lining Up

Good Saturday evening, everyone. Our first weekend of the summer season has been good to us so far. We had highs in the 80s yesterday and today with quiet skies. We should go back into the 80s for Sunday, but our Sunday may not be so quiet around here. I say that because a few systems will bring t-storm chances our way. In fact, we have t-storms out in western and central Kansas on the radar below late on this Saturday evening…

By the time those t-storms try to work in by Sunday morning, they won’t be severe but we’ll have the rain gear handy. After a quiet Sunday afternoon, we’ll have t-storm chances lined up again for late Sunday night through Tuesday. After that, the summer heat and humidity will be ready to work back in. Your forecast, including what to expect with our t-storm chances Sunday and Monday, is right below.

Don’t forget that Doug has you covered with the long-range forecast up until the end of July right below.

Have a good night and a great Sunday!


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.
