Hi Weather Watchers!

Those wanting snow in Northern KS will likely have to stay up pretty late Saturday night into early Sunday morning as a little wave moves through… Accumulations of a dusting to 2″ are possible with this system. The highest accumulations will be along and North of the KS/NE border.

LATE SATURDAY NIGHT-SUNDAY MORNING:,

The potential system we have been watching for the 28-30th has disappeared from the models.

The models had a piece of energy digging into the Four Corners area- with a Baja Low and Gulf of Mexico High spinning that was sending moisture North.

As of this mornings GFS/EURO model run- that storm no longer exists. The system doesn’t dig and it might bring us some clouds – but we are not anticipating a storm and moisture that goes along with a storm.

The reality is that drought conditions are occurring and are likely to continue until Spring.

Here is yesterday’s drought update.

Most of the CENTRAL US is in a seasonal drought – The desert SW and Lower Mississippi Valley into the Southern Plains are in a Severe to Extreme drought. The Northern Rockies and Plains are also in a Moderate to Extreme drought.

Here is what the 500mb looked like 48 days ago.

A few small waves in the flow but no big trough even with the strengthening jet stream.

We wish we had better news.

Just not seeing much of a dynamic system as the models we advertising. Maybe a few Clipper type systems but definitely no signature storms showing up.

Questions- please ask…
