Late Saturday PM September 8th – Quiet Week Lining Up

Good late Saturday evening, everyone. After dealing with a wet week with extra moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the remnants of Gordon, why not top it off with a cloudy and rainy Saturday? The light rain we had this morning resulted in minor accumulations before we tapered off to spotty drizzle in the afternoon and evening. Due to the clouds and rain, everyone was pretty much stuck in the 60s as far as temperatures go. Even though the cloud cover will hang tough with some patchy mist/drizzle, we’ll keep the radar free of any measurable rain through the night…

Thankfully, we’ll have a little more sunshine to break through the clouds and warm us up a little for your Sunday. Beyond tomorrow, we have a quiet week ahead of us while others may not be so fortunate. I have your look at the week ahead below…

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

Have a good night and a great Sunday!


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 September


Next Week:  Most of the week will be warm with scattered pop-up storms most of the week.    This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale.  1’s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  2 on Friday and a 3 on Saturday.

September 23rd-29th:  Cooling down a bit with mild temperatures the last week of September.  We are looking at mainly 60s and 70s.  Thunderstorms on Friday and Saturday.   This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale.  2 on Friday and a 3 on Saturday.
