Friday Forecast... a Look at the Weekend... and a Look at my new Puppy!
The mostly sunny sky we had this afternoon is being whittled away by some high and midlevel clouds. You can see them moving in on the satellite picture below:

These clouds will help hold temperatures up a bit tonight... we should see lows near 20 degrees. Without the clouds, we would be much colder!
A peek into the weekend... things look a little disorganized for us. A weak storm will move way south of KC... but we will see little areas of energy that *could* still bring us some precipitation. Here is a look at Saturday afternoon:

You can see the main storm to our south... but there is still the chance of a few LIGHT showers here. It could be drizzle, flurries or even light snow... but it doesn't look like it will last for long... and it won't amount to much.
I wanted to post a few pictures of our new puppy, Mags. She is now 10 weeks old, but these pictures were taken last week, at 9 weeks. She is a yellow lab, and SO CUTE... as you can see! :)
Here she is listening to Gary's forecast!
And now it's time for a nap! How could you not love that little face??

Hey does it look like there will be any accumulating snowfall for the people in Appleton City during the weekend or any time next week. You guys are the best.
Right now, it does not look good for snow next week. We have a *slight* chance in over the weekend... but right now even THAT doesn't look like it will amount to much. So no accumulations expected... sorry!

Hi - Nice pix of your doglet - we have two dogs, Sheba (Shepherd mix) and Parker (Lab mix). Parker is a bit smaller than your Lab will probably get, but he is still a big boy, or 'yob' as the English call male hooligans ('boy' spelled backwards). You will have fun walking him -watch out for rotator cuff injuries!!!
As I commented on Gary's blog from a day or so back, our weather looks quite placid, doesn't it? For November, I received only .90", missing out entirely on any storms from the previous convective event, and using Lee's Summit (I reside in Blue Springs), my average highs and lows were: 58 and 37F, no doubt higher due to the first week or two of the month.
I know what you mean about rotator cuff injuries... Mags has gained SO much strength/speed in just 10 days... I cannot imagine how it's going to be in a few months! I am hoping I can make her my running buddy! :)
As for the weather pattern, you are right... very dry and warm. The November statistics put us 4.8 degrees above average for the month. In precipitation we were more than an inch below average. This is pretty much our winter forecast! Do you believe it is December and we haven't seen our first inch of snow yet? This could be a boring winter.

It looks like the weather pattern will change after next week, and we will see a greater potential for storms to move into the southwest. That is the weather pattern that can produce some snow for us. The dry northwest flow gives us the cold, but little moisture.
This week we will have cold air in place... but it looks like a good warm-up is possible by next weekend. That would nix any snow chance...
Thanks for blogging!! :)

That is a very cute Puppy. Hey I just want to make a comment. Today Friday Dec. 02 yet another Hurricane Formed well out into the Atlantic. Hurricane Epsilon. Also Epsilon is well away from the US Shorline and moving away, What an incredible Hurricane season it has been. Epsilon now makes it I think Storm # 25 or is it 26 ? I dont think I have ever seen that many storm in my 45 years on this piece of rock. I dont know if there has been that many storms in a hurricane seaon. Normally Hurricane season Starts June 1st and ends November 30th. Hurricane Epsilon Formed Today December 2ond. I wonder if that is a record as well ? Very interesting Storm season it has been and, the Year is not Quite done yet.
Yes, Mags is quite a cutie! And yes, again... an amazing hurricane season! I will do a blog tonight on Epsilon!

I love your dog!!!! We have a yellow lab...Kennedy! He is the most fun (well so is our Corgi). They both are best pals, and what wonderful family dogs! You will have alot of fun together!
Thanks so much for your comments! I have never had a dog before, so I was really nervous when we got her. But she has been great... and I can't believe how fast she is learning (and growing!). You should send in a picture of Kennedy if you get a chance... Gary could use it as a pet pic!!

Mags is sooo cute! Where did you come up with the name? My advice to all new puppy owners: get Spot Shot for those little surprises on the carpet, the stuff works wonders! Good luck with the new addition to your family! =)
Thank you SO much for the advice! Mags is sort of potty trained... she knows when we go outside she has to GO. We have had our fair share of inside accidents, but thankfully they are all #1! :)
We named her Mags after my husband's favorite baseball player, Magglio Ordonez. He used to play on the Chicago White Sox, but now he plays with Detroit. Ken is a die-hard Sox fan, and loves everything baseball! :)

Thats a cute puppy.
The best part is how SMART she is! I have taught her to sit... and today we were working on getting her to come when her name is called. She is pretty good! :)
