Good Monday morning! Back at it after a weekend away from weather-watching. Another busy Autumn week this week although it should be calmer than last week.
After a fantastic Sunday afternoon, we expect a carbon copy today as high pressure drifts east of the area. There is a major storm brewing across the middle of the country and that heads our way for midweek.
Severe weather is likely to break out in the southern Plains later today.
Meanwhile, we will enjoy high temperatures that are WAY above average once again.
Balmy again Tuesday but with more clouds. As that Plains system pushes east, the wind will increase. It will stay windy into Tuesday night and Wednesday.
One more very mild day before reality returns. The rain looks to hold off until after sunset, so it should be a nice one with a gusty breeze. Check out these highs:
Showers arrive Wednesday night.
Wet weather should push away early in the day. This may be a day where the high temperature occurs early in the day instead of the afternoon. Afternoon readings will likely be back in the upper 40s. In other words, back to normal.
We will end the work week with sunshine and seasonable chill.
Does not look like there are any major issues for the weekend; any precipitation events would be minor. Chilly temperatures.
Models are honing in on a cold shot arriving around Thanksgiving. At least a few days of below average temperatures seem likely. We’ll hone in on the timing and specifics as we get closer.
