Late Sunday PM September 9th – Looking A Bit Brighter This Week

Good late Sunday evening, everyone. Well… We tried to shake off the cloud cover today, but Mother Nature wanted otherwise. Other than a few spots west of U.S. 59 climbing into the lower 70s with more sunshine, the rest of the area dealt with cloud cover and highs stuck in the middle to upper 60s. With some of the cloud cover giving way tonight, we’ll have that combine with moisture at the surface and a light breeze contribute to some patchy and dense fog going into Monday morning. At least we’ll stay quiet on the radar below…

Once we burn off the morning fog, we’ll have a brighter and warmer Monday to look forward to. The rest of the week around here is looking warm and dry while we’ll continue to keep an eye on other parts of the country. Your latest look at the week ahead is right below…

Don’t forget that Doug has your long-range forecast below the 7-day forecast.

Have a good night and a great Monday!

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.
