Friday Evening August 10th – Better Rain Chances Still on Track

Good late Friday evening , everyone. We’ve been sounding like a broken record all week long. It was hot & humid all week with random pop-up t-storms thrown into the mix. That was the case once again for your Friday. After starting in the upper 60s, we topped out in the lower to middle 90s this afternoon before the t-storms popped up once again. We’re seeing things calming down once again tonight with the last of the showers and t-storms falling apart on the radar below…

Saturday is looking like, yet again, another repeat of today. We’ll be hot & humid Saturday with another shot for random pop-up t-storms. After Saturday, we’ll see rain chances pick up going into next week. The latest breakdown of the forecast is right below…

Don’t forget that Doug has his long-range forecast out through middle to late September. You can find that right below.

Have a good night and a great Saturday!

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

LONG RANGE FORECAST BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN. THIS COVERS NEBRASKA, IOWA, KANSAS, MISSOURI, OKLAHOMA AND ARKANSAS.

Next Week:  Most of the week will be hot with temps near 90 degrees.  However, I don’t think the humidity will be to bad which will keep the heat index down.  We will have the hit and miss storms just about each and every day.  This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale. 1’s each day.

August 19th-25th:  A warm start to the week.  We will heat into the 90s by mid week but back into the 80s by late week.  Hit and miss storms once again on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  Then again by Friday.  This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale.  1’s each day.

August 26th-September 1st:    Another hot week with thunderstorm chances on Sunday and Monday, then again on Friday and Saturday.  This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale.  1’s on the thundestorm days.

September 2nd-8th:  Mainly a warm week with mild temperatures briefly mid week.  Thunderstorm chances Sunday through Wednesday.  This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale.  2’s thunderstorm days.

September 9th- 16th:  A hot start to the week with warm temperatures the second half of the week.  Thunderstorm chances on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Then again on Friday and Saturday.  This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale.  2’s each day.

September 17th-22nd:  Mainly a warm week with mild temperatures working in by the weekend.  Thunderstorm chances from Thursday through Saturday.  This is the chances for severe weather on a 1-10 scale.  2’s on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
