Quick Post

Good Evening,

It was nice day today!! I predicted 65 at KCI,and it hit 65 at KCI!! Can I do tomorrow? I'm forecasting a high around 38. I am continuing to research this years LRC. I believe it is around 46 days give or take a few. As soon as I see evidence that it is cycling, I will know for sure.

Have a Great night!

Rollercoaster Ride continues!

Good Evening,

The COLD Blast is here!! And tomorrow you will feel the brunt of winter with NW 15-25mph, Wind Chills between 20-25 degrees, and Highs only around 38. But look at the GFS forecast for Sunday Afternoon:

A Warm Front approaches the area, and with West, down sloping winds we will see a BIG warm up. Highs Sunday could be around 60!! When air comes down the rocky mountains, it compresses and warms up in the plains this is as said above down sloping. Then we go down a hill again for Monday (see 7 Day Forecast) This years weather pattern continues to setup and I believe that it is around a 45 day cycle (give or take a few).

Have a Great Weekend!

A Roller Coaster Ride, Are you ready? & 7 day updated

Good Evening bloggers,

The 7 day forecast is updated! I have been busy tonight getting the forecasts ready plus looking at the weather pattern. I will be doing a Winter Forecast in a few weeks as I study the weather pattern. I think the pattern might be between 45-48 day cycle, but I'm researching it still. Look at the graphic describing Friday's cold front:


As you can see we are expecting some rain. right now it appears totals will be around .25" to .50" locally there could be pockets of 1" as of looking at the models right now. Things will/are changing.

Then the chance of flurries appears very slim right now for Friday night into Saturday. It will be cold Saturday with Highs only in the upper 30s, and winds will be howling from the NW at around 15-25mph. Wind Chills could be anywhere around 10 degrees to 24 degrees. On Sunday we could get up to almost 60 degrees, before another cold front comes through.

So get ready for a Roller Coaster ride!
I expect lows to be around 35 degrees with St. Joseph maybe getting around 30 degrees.
Have a great Night for those of you who are still up,

Andrew

Winter Forecast?

Good Afternoon,

I'll be slowly updating the website, and this blog thru the next few weeks. I'll will also be getting the Weather Cast Plus Winter Forecast 2009 done. I am studying the weather pattern, and will have it the forecast very soon.

Friday we could see some flurries or snow showers as a strong cold front comes thru, and little disturbance heads our way. As of now no Accumulation is expected.


Have a Great Day,

Andrew

A Cold Front, Dry line, and the High dew points, and Temperatures in the 80s are all coming together for a possible Severe Weather Outbreak. Here is the Visible sat. Pic:

We have to watch the area of clearing, the cap is slowly eroding,and as soon it has eroded enough; Strong to Severe T-Storms will develop. Right now the main threats are Large Hail, and Damaging Winds. But, Tornadoes are also an Isolated threat,the 1st T-Storms to develop will have the potential for tornadoes before forming into a Squall Line. Here is the latest SPC Day 1 Outlook:

This is not much of a cold front, as it will not drop our temperatures significantly.

2 Day's in a Row! How much rain?

Update: 11:30pm

The new GFS has came out, and it says 1.00"-1.25" of Rain Thursday through Friday. I'm going with 1.25" of Rain. Below is a radar image from our new Storm Tracker Doppler Radar at 11:30pm. Rain is already developing in Central Kansas. With Storm Tracker, and First Alert Doppler, we will be able to give you the latest Severe Weather info!! Speaking of Severe Weather, there is only a slight chance tomorrow. The Storm Prediction Center hasn't even put us under a Slight Risk for right now. click to enlarge

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We did it again! It hit our forecasted high of 75F degrees today!! Now the question is how much rain do we get Thursday and part of Friday? Below is the latest NAM data,it shows between .50"-1". I'll have my forecast after the GFS comes out.



We also have a stalled front, as you can see below. This front will play a role in determining how much rain we will get, and how warm we will get. Will it be in the 50s, or get into the low to mid 60s? I'm updating the 5 day right now and will have on the web soon!

Update later, after the 00z GFS comes out!

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

Another Stormy Thursday...

Update: 11:55pm:

The new GFS has around 1" to 1.75". Right now I will wait until tomorrow before forecasting rainfall amounts.

Good Evening bloggers,

Take a look at the Almanac for today:


As you can see, we got it right on the nose!! Can we do it again tomorrow? Tomorrow could be anywhere between 70-80 degrees! The 80 degrees depends on when the clouds move in. Right now it appears the clouds will come in around 3pm. Then our attention turns to the storm on Thursday. A Cold front will be coming through, and behind this front, we will see some Thunder Storms. How much rain will fall? Some of the computer models say around 0.10 -.19". I update the rest of this after the 00z GFS comes out.

Freezing Tonight!

Good Sunday Evening bloggers,

We are setting up for a Moderate Freeze tonight with temps around 25F. Here is some plant care info from www.hamonslandscaping.com:

"Landscapes in Kansas City will soon be hitting the deep freeze. Well, maybe not the deep freeze. However even with temperatures reaching down into upper 20�s � it is important to have all the information necessary.

First of all this is not at all like the freeze of 2007 � although the dates are not that different. The difference lies in the weather of March. In 2007, Kansas City�s weather was unseasonably warm. Plants were a good 3 - 4 weeks ahead of normal development. Last year I already had Iris blooms poking up in my yard. This year, I barely have leaves coming through last falls leaves. Freezing temperatures this weekend will only be a slight problem for landscapers and homeowners in Kansas City.

Different plants will need different amounts of care this weekend.

Perennials

Most perennials will be fine as long as the temperature stays above 20 degrees. However, if you are the type of person who like to err on the side of caution then covering the plants with a bed sheet. If you use plastic then you must make sure to support the plastic off the leaves or blooms and leaves will still be damaged.

Trees

There is no practical way to protect a tree from the effects of the freezing air. All those pretty magnolias that bloomed this week will be turned to mush if the temperature gets below freezing. However, no permanent damage will be done. This is a common problem with most magnolia trees in our area. Sweetbay Magnolias are on tree that rarely has problems because of it late blooming.

Shrubs

If you have any shrubs that are blooming or who have tender new growth then they should be covered with a sheet to protect the new tender foliage. If you do nothing then you will likely see some dieback of the new foliage - but no lasting damage. If you have shrubs that almost ready to bloom, you may lose this year�s blooms if they are not protected.

Vegetables

If you got an early start on some of your vegetable you will need to protect them unless they are spinach or lettuce. Construct a sturdy frame over the rows and then lay a sheet over each row. Secure the sheet to the ground to prevent wind from moving or disturbing the sheet.

With a little extra care you will can make sure that this upcoming freeze will not delay the beauty of the your landscape."

More Tomorrow,

Andrew

Thursday, April 10, 2008

Last Line

Good Evening,
 
Wow! What a day, the last line of Severe T-Storms is moving through with Hail, and Damaging Winds the main threats. We will quiet down and we could have a few snowflakes on Friday,and/or Saturday. Then a Nice Warm up is in store for Next week as we could be in the 80s! I'll have more tomorrow.

click to enlarge



A powerful storm system is developing, right now we have only a Slight Risk for Severe Weather. I still think we could get up to 70 degrees as the Sun is trying to come out. In fact as I write this the sun is peeking in, and out here in Olathe. we could see re-development as we go into the afternoon. Large Hail will be the biggest threat;if any T-Storms develop. The Warm Front is almost here, as you can see on the maps above. I'll have more updates to come!

The Severe T-Storms which have cause major devastation in Arkansas, Tennessee continue to move east along the Cold Front. I'll try to get pictures tomorrow from those areas. Speaking of Pictures, send in your snow photos to: stafandt@earthlink.net.
