Hot and Severe

HIGH: 92
LOW: 70

We made it into the lower 90s today, with all that sunshine out there! And, indeed, it was windy! Gusts were reported in the 45 mph range across Kansas! You'll notice a BIG difference in the temperatures AND the wind direction for Sunday.

We have been dealing with the warm southerly winds ahead of our storm:

Thunderstorms have errupted in Kansas, ahead of the front. Here is a look at ESP this evening:

And there are watches and warnings to go along with the thunderstorms! Check out the watches out from the US/Canadian border all the way down into Northern Texas:

We may or may not go into a watch... I do think these storms will tend to weaken as they head our way. But they still could be strong enough to kick off some wind damage.

On the other side of this front... comes the wind-shift and the cooler temperatures! Check it out... first the HOT temps TODAY:

Then about 15-20 degrees COOLER on SUNDAY:

And then likely another 10 degrees or so COOLER on MONDAY:

This time of year is the best... if you like changes! :)
Have a good night!

30 degree dip in two days seems like a powerful cold front. Also..seems like the watches along the front show it is potent. Hopefully they will run out of gas a bit and just give us some rain, but I do expect some strong winds...it just looks too linear.

We had a couple of t-storm warnings on the Kansas side... but that was it. Almost an inch at KCI, though,... that is pretty good!

I do like the changes this time of year. But this year, just about any change would be welcome, short of an October Surprise Snowstorm.

It's odd how rain in general, and severe weather in particular, seems to be showing up on your shift rather than Gary's or Brett's lately. Probably just a coincidence, but I'm timing my lawn mowing around you, just in case.


I know... I have been pretty busy over the weekends lately! ;) Have fun mowing your lawn today!

we ended up with about .8" here in trenton, had .65" between 4 and 420am

We had some pretty good rains, thanks for the update!
