Early Friday AM August 10th – Another Hot & Humid Day Ahead of Us

Good late Thursday evening and early Friday morning, everyone. We had quite an interesting Thursday. We started out mild with some patchy dense fog across portions of the area. After we got past a quiet morning, we heated up in the afternoon and saw a good scattering of pop-up t-storms. Some packed quite a punch but we, thankfully, didn’t deal with a lot of severe weather. Going into the rest of the night, we’ll keep the radar below nice and quiet…

Friday is looking like a repeat of what we dealt on Thursday. After some spots start with some patchy dense fog, we’ll have a quiet morning. After the morning, we’ll have random pop-up t-storms in the afternoon. While Friday’s expected rain coverage will be spotty to scattered, some spots will get rain while others stay dry. If you’re still thirsty for rain, I still see more rain chances lining up over the next several days. The latest 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 Friday!

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.
