Good Morning Weather Watchers…

A Cold front is moving through the Central Plain – Strong NNW winds behind this system. Temps will be in the 30s for most areas of the Sunflower State today…This Cold Air will help dry out the atmosphere via a Strong area of High Pressure.

IF YOU ARE TRAVELING SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST YOU WILL EXPERIENCE TRAVEL ISSUES.

The models are FINALLY trending to a Southern solution for the late Friday/Saturday storm.

This looks to be a Winter Storm that obviously affect the Panhandles and Oklahoma and then will affect a portion of the Ozark’s that HAS NOT seen a Winter Storm in over 1300+ days!! If you had plans to go to Branson this weekend- we encourage you to reschedule. Southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas will see Heavy Snow and Ice Sat into Sunday…

Here is the short term NAM Model:

We will warm up next week seeing temperature close to Normal upper 40s to Low 50s ahead of another cool down around mid month.

Based on our LONG RANGE FORECAST TECHNIQUE we should begin an active period right before Christmas continuing through mid January.

Here is the AO index- notice it begins trending negatively around mid month, right on time.

There is still the potential that parts of Southern KS sees Snow- so it will be worth checking back…

Some models still have Southern KS getting a few inches of Snow but confidence in our current forecast is much higher than it was yesterday. These storms can be so hard to predict…

Questions, please ask….
