Rocky Mountain Snow
The storm I talked about yesterday is now affecting the Denver area! After yesterday's high of 83 there, today it is raining, and the high temperature has only been 54! Tomorrow, temperatures won't even make it out of the 30s! There are winter storm WARNINGS in effect... as they could get some major snow! Some places could see a foot or more:

The map above also illustrates that through Monday night... we are not expecting any significant precipitation here in Kansas City. The storm continues to be a slow-mover... and now may be even slower than we thought yesterday. It looks like Wednesday might be our rainy day... with possible rain continuing into early Thursday.
But we won't see nearly as much precip as Colorado and Wyoming. Here is the accumulated rain forecast for KC from Monday through Thursday night:

It looks like it will be a light rain event!
Enjoy your Sunday evening!

Speaking of snow when do you plan to have your winter weather forecast out?
The winter forecast will be out during the first week of November. Stay tuned to the blog and NBC Action News... Gary will start talking about how the new pattern is setting up over the next couple of weeks!

Looking at the weather history for the last 150 years, do you see evidence of the global warming in our current cycle?
I ask as one who does not believe that this warming cycle is entirely the fault of mankind. Rather, I see that it is part of the natural geologic cycle. It very well could be that our dependence on hydrocarbons and combustible fuels is speeding the warming cycle. But the recorded number of huricanes appears to be on par with the early 1920s. It could be that the massive smog produced by teh industrialized nations of the nineteenth century may have contributed.
It is very difficult to tell whether we are the cause of global warming. I am sure what we are doing is not helping. The curious thing about the hurricanes is not the number, but the number of intense hurricanes. During the past hurricane maximums there were not as many category 3's, 4's & 5's.
