Weather blog – Low clouds and a big warm-up on the weekends
Red sky in the morning, Marin, be careful! It’s old folklore and a statement written a long time ago. Take a look at the sky earlier today from the Plaza in Kansas City:
Low clouds were setting in early this morning. They acted as a blanket and kept us from freezing this morning. It was still clear to our east and the sunlight was reflecting off the clouds which moved to create the pretty red sky. As the saying goes, when you have the red sky in the morning, it is because the clouds usually increase from the west, indicating that a storm is approaching. And, if it happens at night, the clouds usually go away as the sun sets in the west. For this situation, there is no storm, but there is a large area of clouds.
This satellite sector shows low clouds coming from the south and southwest. These will likely go away later in the day, but likely not until early to mid-afternoon. The biggest warm-up starts tomorrow and will last until Monday.
By Sunday, southerly winds will extend from the Gulf Coast to the U.S.-Canada border. This will provide the conditions for the huge warm-up in the 60s and 70s this weekend. That means it’ll be great for tailgating, the Chiefs game, and all other outdoor activities this weekend.
I’m out of time for today’s blog as I don’t want to be late for my big back / trap / shoulder workout. We’ll take a look at the new data and bring you the most accurate and detailed KC forecast on KSHB-41 tonight!
Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the weather blog. Have a good Thursday.
