October 20, 2017

Friday starts cool and breezy and will turn warm and windy by the afternoon. Highs continue to be well above normal and reach the middle 70s with partly sunny skies. Gusts could get up to 30 mph at times. We usually see winds calm down after the sun goes down but that won’t be the case today. Strong winds will blow out of the south all the way through Saturday.

Saturday morning will be mainly dry with storms becoming likely by the late afternoon and evening. Especially after dark in the KC Metro. Some storms could be strong to severe with damaging winds being the main threat.

Showers linger into the overnight hours but should clear out by Sunday.

Fall colors will soon show themselves but we are still more than a week away in the Metro area. If you want to check out the colorful foliage this weekend you will have to travel. First of all here’s the forecast for color change this weekend:

Fall

You can easily see that the best opportunity for reds and yellows will be over northern Missouri. Even though a few of our trees will begin to show signs of Autumn the colors will stay mostly green unless you road trip north. Check out the best areas to see the first of the Fall change:

Fall 1

Everyone has their favorite roads to roam the countryside but if you are looking for a route I’ve constructed a path that will put you in the best position to see at least some color change:

Fall 2

The other hindrance will be the weather. Of the two weekend days Sunday will certainly be the best option with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. Even though Sunday will be the cooler of the two the sunshine reflecting off the trees should allow you to snap a few nice pictures either in your mind or on your camera especially along Hwy. 136 across northern Missouri. If you can wait the following weekend will offer near peak colors across most of our area.

Williams’s Wrap: Sunny Skies Continue
October 17, 2017

Not as chilly of a start to your Tuesday but morning temperatures in the 40s and 50s will still be worthy of a jacket. A few clouds populate the morning sky but blue skies dominate during the afternoon. Highs will be a few degrees warmer and get into the low 70s.

Sunny skies and 70s continue at least through Friday. We’ll start to see some changes over the weekend when rain and thunderstorm chances make a return. Mainly late Friday night through Saturday night.

Frost Advisory for counties to the north and west of the KC Metro will be in effect until 9am. But it’ll be a chilly Monday morning no matter where you are with temperatures to start the day in the 40s and 30s. Skies stay sunny the whole day with highs in the upper 70s. A nice fall week is ahead as temperatures warm through the 70s through Friday with sunny skies.

Williams’s Wrap: Saturday Storms Update
October 14, 2017

download (7)download (6)

The area has already seen a few showers and some thunder this morning and wet weather will continue to be a possibility into the afternoon, even though chances won’t be the best. It’s still looking like late in the afternoon and evening is when we’ll see some stronger storms, some of which could be severe.

Damaging wind gusts are the main threat but an isolated tornado and some large hail can’t be ruled out. Storms will still be around after 10pm but the severe threat will wind down and stormy weather clears out through the overnight. Sunday will be dry and much cooler with highs in the low 60s. A few clouds linger in the sky early in the day but skies turn blue by the afternoon.

Our weather this weekend will be rather schizophrenic with Saturday and Sunday resembling two very different seasons. The morning hours on Saturday will begin with a mostly overcast sky and air that will have enough humidity locked in it that you may feel a little Spring in the air. A cold front will work through during the late afternoon and evening hours  driving strong storms through our area with large hail and damaging winds possible from the middle of the afternoon through midnight.

RPM 1

The Storm Prediction Center shows the risk area for the greatest potential for severe weather with our area right in the mix.

Risk

The wind will also be a factor with gusts as high as 20 MPH out of the southwest ahead of the front followed by 30 MPH gusts out of the northwest behind the front after sunset. 

 Chiefs

Once the storms clear our area after midnight the remainder of the weekend will have a very November like feel with the coolest mornings of the season so far and a sunny but very cool afternoon when the Chiefs take the field Sunday afternoon. By the way temperatures will drop into the middle 50s by the 4th quarter of the game against Pittsburgh. Have your jacket or at least long sleeves ready for the game!

Williams’s Wrap: Warm Friday, Stormy Saturday

Not as chilly to start your Friday with morning temperatures in the 50s and 60s. A few more clouds move in just ahead of our next front by the afternoon. It will also be unseasonably warm with highs in the low to mid 80s. There’s a slight chance for an isolated shower or storm in northern Missouri after dark. This will lead to a few showers or rumbles being around Saturday morning and afternoon.

Between 4pm and 9pm is when we’ll need to be on the lookout for strong to severe storms. Damaging winds and some hail possible. Storms clear out by early Sunday morning, making for a happy Chiefs Kingdom. Sunday’s Chiefs game will be cool and sunny.

Williams’s Wrap: Foggy Start, Sunny Finish
October 12, 2017

Fog and low clouds will be around this morning and possibly as late as mid morning. But sunshine and warmer temperatures in the 70s await for the afternoon. Your Thursday evening will also be comfortable as temperatures cool through the 60s with a clear sky.

Friday morning won’t be as chilly as temperatures in the 60s start the day, a good hint that the afternoon will be much warmer. Highs to start the weekend reach the low to mid 80s across the area with a partly sunny sky. Our north zone could see some showers and storms Friday night. Storms in the Kansas City area become more likely Saturday, especially during the evening but they’ll move out by Sunday.

Williams’s Wrap: Sunshine Starts To Break Free
October 11, 2017

Grab the jacket/coat before you step out the door as we see another chilly start with morning temperatures in the 40s. But winds have calmed down and aren’t as breezy, so wind chill isn’t as much a factor in how it feels out there. Wednesday starts cloudy but skies start to clear around midday, leading to good amounts of sunshine during the afternoon.

Highs will be mild and much more comfortable in the low 60s. We’ll need to be on the lookout for some patchy to dense fog Thursday morning but sunshine will take over by late morning. Highs continue to rise and reach the low 70s tomorrow.

Williams’s Wrap: Cool Showers Tuesday
October 10, 2017

Some rain will make it’s way through the area during the morning and afternoon. The best chance for a shower or two in the Metro will be around lunchtime. Temperatures stay chilly all day as we slowly fall through the 40s. A northerly breeze will make it feel like the low 40s/upper 30s.

Any rain around the area later in the afternoon and evening will taper and we’ll just be left with a cloudy sky which will continue into Wednesday. Temperatures warm slightly but it will still be cool with highs in the 50s. A big turnaround by Friday as highs jump into the 80s.
