Mid-November cold bast looming

Several indications are in place for a blast of cold air surging into the U.S. by the middle of the month. Current temperatures up north are showing a gathering area of very cold air.

The jet stream, or the lower atmosphere’s steering currents of the weather, looks to change course a bit by early next week. This will allow for the colder air up north to plunge southward.

One thing to note, as of right now, the pattern is not favorable for precipitation in Northeast Kansas, so even if the brunt of the cold air sweeps in, the initial push of cold air should be coming our way in a dry fashion.
