Williams’s Wrap: Wet Weekend?

July 29, 2016 - Leave a Response

Friday’s feel has definitely been nice.  Normally, highs are supposed to be in the upper 80s but we’ll only make it to the mid 80s today.  There’s still a pretty slim chance for an isolated shower/t-storm to develop but those chances decrease as we head into the evening.

ForecastTrack4

Temperatures through the weekend remain comfy and slightly below normal.  Expect highs around the mid 80s Saturday and Sunday.  Even though it will feel nice there’s still a chance that some of the weekend could be damp.  Saturday only brings a 20% chance for a few showers/t-storms.  We’ll see a similar set up to what played out Thursday night.  Most of the rain in the region will likely move south and west around the Metro.  Kansas City could still get clipped by a shower/t-storm as this happens though.

Sunday brings a slightly better chance for rain (40%).  A few showers/t-storms will be possible mainly during the morning and afternoon.  A warm front lifts over the region through Sunday and will bring a another slight chance for rain during the evening and overnight.  Some leftover showers are possible Monday morning, but the big story as we start another work week will be the heat.  By Monday afternoon, we’ll begin another stretch of hot weather with highs in the mid and upper 90s.

The weekend doesn’t look to be a washout so I wouldn’t cancel any plans that you have.  But if you plan on being outside just keep an eye to the sky.  Have an umbrella at the ready, and when thunder roars, go indoors.

Teachman’s Take: Cool Today With Random Showers

July 29, 2016 - Leave a Response

Temperatures have cooled off!  With a mix of sun and clouds, there is a slight chance for a pop-up shower or storm today.  Winds will be light from the north at 4 to 8 MPH.  Highs feel pretty good in the middle 80s!

Teach1

A shower or storm cannot be ruled out for Saturday.  The majority of the rain should be located to the southwest of KC.  Sunday still holds out for widespread showers and thunderstorms.  Highs this weekend will be in the middle to upper 80s.  Next week, with a few leftover showers early Monday, skies are expected to clear and temperatures will soar.  Highs will reach back into the upper 90s all next week!  Heat indices will climb above 100.

Suchan Says: 11:35pm Rain Update

Pocket of rain and some thunder near KC and to the south

A weakening zone of showers and thunder is moving across the southern half of the area.  I do not expect severe weather warnings to be issued with this batch but certainly heavy rain, lightning and a few wind gusts are possible before they completely fade away early tonight.

Friday will bring an additional chance of hit or miss showers and thunderstorms with partly sunny to variably cloudy skies.  I have a 20% to 30% chance of rain from north to south across the viewing area.  Highs will be in the lower to mid 80s.

Friday Morning: A few showers or thunder possible

ForecastTrack3

Midday: Showers or thunder possible in the area

Friday Late Afternoon: Decreasing rain chance late day. Evening looks good if you’re out

Williams’s Wrap: Rain Chances Still Slim

July 28, 2016 - Leave a Response

It seems like everyone except the Metro has gotten a passing shower or thunderstorm these past few days, and as we head towards the weekend we’ll continue to see those hit or miss chances.  Thursday evening will be mainly dry but a few rumbles of thunder will still be found well to the south and east of the Metro.  Especially out west over Kansas too.

blog_8

An isolated shower/t-storm is possible Thursday night and through Friday but widespread activity doesn’t look likely.  We’ll also start the weekend a few degrees cooler with highs reaching the low to mid 80s.  Compared to a normal July day, that’s going to feel very nice.

ForecastTrack2

Slim rain chances continue Saturday and Sunday with highs around the mid 80s.  Enjoy these conditions while they last because starting Monday, we’ll enter another hot and humid pattern.  The jet stream shifts further to the north and allows much warmer air to build into the region.  Expect consecutive days of highs in the 90s next week.

Teachman’s Take: Hot Now — Cooler Tomorrow

July 28, 2016 - Leave a Response

There will be a few areas of patchy fog this morning, mainly in lower lying locations like valleys and by the rivers. Otherwise, it will be partly cloudy today, hot and humid. Temperatures will top out around 89 this afternoon with the heat index at 93. There’s a slim chance for a brief pop-up shower between noon and 7 PM.

Teach1

Another slight chance for rain on Friday and Saturday. Right now, it looks like Sunday could be our best chance for rain over the next week. Highs will remain in the 80s through the weekend. Next week, it will get toasty again. Highs will be in the middle 90s with sunshiny skies.

Williams’s Wrap: Mid-Week Weather Update

July 27, 2016 - Leave a Response

Wednesday will continue to be a warm summer day as many highs flirt with 90 by the late afternoon.  Skies remain mostly to partly sunny across the region which will lead to photo opportunities for capturing a nice sunset this evening.

blog

A cold front moves in overnight but won’t bring too much change.  Rain chances after midnight aren’t the best but there’s still the possibility of an isolated strong storm that could pack some high wind gusts.  Any stormy activity we get could linger into Thursday morning but the cold front will continue to slide south and take rain chances with it.

blog_2

The rest of Thursday is looking dry with near-normal highs around the mid to upper 80s under partly sunny skies.  This is exactly what we can expect through the rest of the week, comfortable highs with slim rain/t-storm chances.  But we’ll begin to heat back up into the 90s next week.

Teachman’s Take: Feeling Muggier

July 27, 2016 - Leave a Response

It’s starting to feel a little muggier this morning.  With limited winds this afternoon, it will feel steamy.  Highs will be in the lower 90s, but feel more like 95 to 99 during the heat of the afternoon.  Skies will stay partly cloudy.

Teach2 Teach1

Overnight, showers and thunderstorms will develop.  These storms are expected to stick around through the Thursday morning commute.  While severe weather isn’t expected, a stronger storm capable of producing brief gusty winds is possible along with heavy rain.  More storms are possible Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The timing of these storms wants to put them in our area during the morning hours.  Next week, the heat builds back into the 90s with dry skies.

Teachman’s Take: Talk About A Comfy Start!

July 26, 2016 - Leave a Response

For this to be nearly the end of July, what a treat for our temps to start this nice!

Teach3

Heading into afternoon, it will be mostly sunny, warm and humid.  Winds will be light from the northeast in the morning and switch to the southeast by afternoon.  Highs will stay near normal in the upper 80s.

Teach2

A few more clouds are expected by Wednesday.  Temperatures will be warm again just shy of 90.  Showers and thunderstorms are possible Wednesday night and into Thursday.  Right now, chances for severe storms looks low, but a storm with brief gusty winds and hail cannot be ruled out.  Temperatures back off to the middle 80s Thursday and with a slight rain chance by Friday.  The weekend won’t be completely dry.  Most of Saturdays looks quiet with storms possible by early Sunday.  Temperatures over the weekend stay in the upper 80s.  Next week, highs heat back up into the 90s.

Take care,

Teachman’s Take: Cooling Off & Stormy Days Ahead

July 25, 2016 - Leave a Response

The heat wave has been busted!  Scattered showers and thunderstorms will move through this morning.  Not all places will pick up the rain.  In areas that do, heavy downpours and lots of lightning are likely.  Otherwise, skies will clear by afternoon and temperatures will warm into the upper 80s.  It will feel a touch on the humid side, but it’s better than where we’ve been!

Teach1

Every day this week there is a chance for a shower or a thunderstorm.  Best rain chances will come on Wednesday and Thursday.  Highs will remain in the upper 80s.  Overnight lows average near 70.  This weekend, there’s still a random rain risk with most staying dry.

Williams’s Wrap: Cooler, Wetter Pattern Ahead

The title should actually say “relatively” cooler, because it will still be warm in the coming days but it won’t feel as bad as our long week of dangerous heat.  We do have to get through Sunday first though.  Highs reach the mid 90s by the afternoon under partly cloudy skies.  A cold front will move through the region Sunday but won’t pack enough of a punch to give ALL of us relief.
ron
There’s also a chance for rain Sunday which will come from our frontal passage.  Areas north of the Metro will have a chance for a few scattered showers/storms through the morning and into the afternoon.  The Metro will have a decent shot at some rain later in the afternoon and into the evening.  Towards the overnight, the front will continue to drop south and settle over central MO by Monday.  This will bring a slight chance for rain to our southern tier counties through Monday but the Metro should be mainly dry.
ForecastTrack3
Highs Monday reach the upper 80s, a few spots in the low 90s are possible too.  Low 90s look likely Tuesday as rain chances really take a hit but after that, we’ll see highs in the 80s for the rest of the work week.  We’ll have a chance for rain every day with chances peaking late Wednesday night.
