Good Tuesday evening! I hope you have had a good start to your week. Mine is going pretty well so far. After a very hot weekend and Monday, at least today is a little better. But when we look at the rest of the month and the first half of September, we are going to continue to see a lot of the same. Above average rain with most days into the upper 80s to lower 90s. We haven’t hit 100 this year, and it will be very hard for us to do it. This has been the summer of the humidity. When you have this much humidity, it is almost impossible to get the temperatures up to 100 degrees.

We will start to see a decent switch in September. Remember, the Heady Pattern is almost over. In fact we are in the transition from the 18-19 pattern into the 19-20 pattern. This transition will take about another 6 weeks, then we will be completely in the new pattern. Once that occurs, I can tell you exactly what to expect for the fall and winter. As of right now, we are 75% old and 25% new on the pattern. If you look close, you can see a switch already taking place. Much more to come on this in the upcoming month or two.

Take a look at the radar below.

We do have some storms out to the west which will track across the state of KS tonight. However, these will fall apart as they work in. We could get a few random ones in here, but most of them will die off. Here is a look at late tonight.
