A Few Storms Wednesday; Big-Time Heat for the Weekend
5:00 p.m. Tue 22 July 2014
A cold front now over Kansas will continue its move southward, driven by the steering currents on the east side of a huge upper high. This front will provide lift and there should be enough moisture around for a few thunderstorms to pop during Wednesday afternoon/evening.
The front will dissipate while the upper high is expected to get a little stronger into the weekend, plus our low-level winds will turn more to the southwest. This pattern is favorable for 100-plus temperatures central and west and upper 90s east Thursday through Sunday.
Another unseasonably robust cold front is indicated by several different long-range models to arrive sometime at the end of the weekend. Its passage will offer another chance for rain, along with significantly cooler temperatures by Monday.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Clear….Lows 70 to 74
Wednesday: 20% Thunderstorms…..Highs 93 to 98
Thursday: Sunny …..74/98
Sunday: Sunny …..76/98
Monday: 20% Thunderstorms…..71/95
Tuesday: 20% Thunderstorms …..70/92
May You Have a Super Wednesday!
