Living On the Edge
This afternoon, the viewing area is split by cloud cover. Mostly cloudy skies are the rule at St. Joseph and KCI... while we are still seeing quite a bit of sunshine downtown and in Olathe. Here is a look at the visible satellite image, valid as of 12:45pm:

See how the clouds are splitting the viewing area? We're literally "living on the edge"... of cloud cover today! :) Now the clouds are actually backing in from the Northeast, so they will eventually cool things off for us later this afternoon. But some places haven't warmed much at ALL because the clouds have been in place all day! St. Joseph has not seen the sun today, and they have been in the 30s for most of the day, too! Where we started the day with sunshine, we are into the lower 40s.
We should start to warm again on Friday. We'll see more sunshine and that will help us out! We are also still looking at a big warm up as we head into the weekend!
Checking in on next week's possible storm... here is this morning's GFS run:

It's still showing UP... but how will it look in a couple of days? We'll keep you posted.
On a personal note... my name will be changing this weekend! I am officially taking my married name onair... I will be Jamie Jarosik! I hope that doesn't confuse people... but I really am a little old-fashioned and I wanted to change my name :)
Have a good day!

I have to do a researh paper in school. I want to do something with winter storms and I was wondering if you could please suggest some things about winter storms that I could look up. I would like to learn something on aspects of winter storms or something on forecasting winter events. Or maybe just the nature of winter storms how they evolve whatever it is. Can you suggest some ideas for me. That would help me out. Try to think of something that I would need to know if I would use as metorologist. Something really detailed that I could look up some info on. I would really like it if you can help me out atnarrowing my choices. Thanks. Tell everyone I said hi.
