Latest updated blog: Heat continues but some relief in sight. -Doug

Good Saturday night or soon to be Sunday morning!  I hope your weekend has been great so far, and hopefully you are staying cool.  It was down right hot on Saturday.  Plus the humidity was up there, so we had heat indices around 100 degrees most of the day.  Some good news is that the humidity will be a little lower the next couple of days.  Instead of heat indices above 100, they will sit around 95.  I mean that is better, right?  Sunday is going to be pretty good one, but still heating up.  But at least the heat index will be a little lower.

It will feel a little hotter out there with the humidity.  I think most of us will have a heat index around 95-97 degrees.

But overall, there isn’t much going on with the weather.  We are still in the same Heady Pattern that we have been in for 9 months, but we are in the summer version of it.  What you see is what you get.  It is a pattern, so if you don’t like the heat and the humidity, you may want to move for about 3 months, lol.  Here is the set-up this week.

We have this huge upper level ridge out to our west.  This forces any bigger systems to go over the ridge and slight SE across the Great Lakes.  We just don’t get much action with these patterns.  We do get a few waves that rotate closely around the ridge and could give us a few scattered storms this week, but most of those will stay in central and western KS.  So overall, it is pretty boring until we can get the ridge to break down and get a cold front into the area.  We will see this most likely occurring later this week.  The ridge breaks down, our chances for showers and thunderstorms go up Thursday and Friday.

Good news here is we will cool down a bit for a couple day next weekend before the heat returns.  Check out the long range forecast below.




June 20th-26th:  The heat returns early in the week with scattered thunderstorms from Tuesday through Saturday.  We will cool down a bit for the weekend.

June 27th-July 3rd:  Heating up this week with mainly hot temperatures.  Scattered thunderstorms as we work into the holiday weekend.
