The January 17/18 system returns and in a BIG WAY!!
Hi Weather Watchers- the System we will experience over the next 3 days is the mid January system that cam through.
The January system was positively tilted SW to NE – it did produce over .50″ of liquid moisture East of I-135 and a Tr to 1″ of Snow on the back side. The temps remained below normal for about about week in January- our normal temps at around 55-60, lows in the 30s.
Let’s look at the current storm and jet stream starting at 7AM this morning as it comes in shore.
Tomorrow morning as it’s strengthening…
You can see it becoming negatively tilted (SE to NW)- which draws in lots of moisture
Between 7AM and 7PM the winds will be the strongest…some could see 70mph WIND GUSTS!!
Next let’s look at how the system develops and strengthens over time and the temperature profiles… it’s very interesting how this system develops:
Between 7AM and 1PM is when the storm becomes the strongest.
We have provided you temp profiles and precipitation profiles based on TIME FRAMES.
Tomorrow will be a very miserable day from late tonight through mid afternoon. Rain, possibly heavy, VERY WINDY through mid evening when the gradient starts to relax.
What we are interested in is late afternoon when Central/South Central KS could see skies clear for a few hours before the Cold front moves through- if that occurs temperatures could reach the mid to upper 60s with 50-60mph Southerly/Southwesterly winds…
The strongest pressure gradient will occur between late morning and late afternoon. Models are showing pressures around 970mb to 976mb
THE PRESSURE NORMALLY SEEN IN A CATEGORY 2 HURRICANE!!
Here is the current threat map.
JUST LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THIS STORM!!! Amazing!!!
