T.J.’s Forecast: One front pulls away, another on the approach for the closeout of the weekend

Storm Track 3 Update: Scattered thunderstorms by the latter half of our Sunday

A cold front and an area of low pressure have been pulling away from the Sunflower State which has made for a more sunshine but a rather blustery day throughout the viewing area.

High pressure continues to build in from the north, at least briefly which will help our winds calm some through the overnight. With skies staying at least partially clear, our temps will fall back down below average for this time of the year.

Lows will be tumbling back down into the 30s and 40s with some isolated areas of frost possible along the Kansas-Nebraska Stateline. The winds will begin to uptick yet again by Sunday as another front approaches.

Our flow will turn southerly out ahead of this boundary which will make for a seasonable afternoon with highs in the 60s and 70s.

Clouds will begin to thicken up by the latter half of our day as this system gets closer. As it does, our moisture chances will also be increasing, especially out west. The severe ingredients will not be all there, namely, the moisture, which will be lacking.

Dew points will be fairly marginal I’m thinking, and with a cap in place, we’re not expecting an outbreak of severe storms. We do though have a MARGINAL RISK in place for much of Kansas. This means a couple of storms could be strong to severe with heavy rain, gusty winds, and larger hail.

Make sure you’re staying with the Storm Track 3 Team for the latest. Scattered showers and storms will continue into tomorrow night and right into the start of the workweek as this boundary stalls. This will keep the pattern unsettled with more widespread moisture expected on Tuesday. The shower and storm chance continues though, right into Thursday before the boundary finally moves eastward. 

Have a great night!
