Another Mini Heat Wave then….A look into August….
Hi Weather Watchers!
We will see Heat indices around 105 across Central/South Central KS Wed-Thur-Fri before a weak cool front approaches.
Over the next few nights, Northeast and the Eastern 1/4 of Kansas should see slow moving, heavy rain producing Thunderstorm-especially late evening into the overnight. Heavy Rain is possible across those areas.
Pieces of energy will move Southeast in between a Lee-side Low over the Eastern Plains Of Colorado/Western KS and an area of High Pressure over the Upper Midwest.
Late Wed night:
Late Thurs night:
Monsoonal moisture ( moisture that flows NNE from the Desert SW ) approaches, around August 6, that moisture will interact with a piece of energy to our NW – one part of our repeating storms.
This piece of energy is right on time based on our long range forecast technique:
We expect additional pieces of energy to impact the area right on schedule – this is our 7th Cycle…
The GFS Model is showing a fairly strong Cold front around the 14th to 15th giving us periodic chances of moisture until the cold front moves through or will it stall??
We should have a somewhat active period again the last 7-10 days of August based on our Long Range Pattern…
We will provide more details as the repeating systems become more apparent on the Models.
For those of you who track the cycles and the return of our signature storms – August, one of our driest months could be interesting…
We should start to see a transition in the pattern in the near future Sept-Nov is when the pattern resets for the following 10-11 months.
