We’re tracking a rather nice start to the week, considering it’s late November. High temperatures will find themselves ‘above average’ again today, as they reach the upper 50s. Keep in mind, our average high temperature for this time of the year is crashing – it has plummeted to 52°. The extended forecast will feature highs in the 50s, with lows scattered in the 30s…for the most part.
Clouds will be on the rapid increase today, as our next weather-maker approaches; mostly sunny skies will quickly become ‘mostly cloudy’ this afternoon. Rain will develop overnight, spreading west-to-east across our neck of the woods. Don’t be surprised if you hear that rare crack of November thunder sometime tomorrow. A couple thunderstorms will be possible as this storm system passes through. The overall rainfall totals don’t look all that impressive, though. Locally heavy rain is expected under some of the more intense showers. Otherwise, there will be plenty of rain-free time on Tuesday. All of Northeast Kansas will be dry by Tuesday evening – giving us plenty of time to dry things out AND clear things out for Turkey Day.
Yes, the forecast slowly improves by Thanksgiving. In fact, expect wall-to-wall sunshine with highs around 60° on Turkey Day. What a difference a year makes too! How quickly we forget the countless WINTER STORM WARNINGS and the rather nasty ice storm this time last year. Nothing even close to that thistime around, though. Sunshine and tranquil weather will prevail throughout Thanksgiving Weekend as we get ourselves into yet another prolonged stretch of nice weather. Stay tuned.
