Rain Moves Out…Beautiful Weekend In Progress

The storm system responsible for the heavy rainfall over the past couple of days continues to move off to the east leaving in it’s wake sunshine and much cooler temperatures.

Heavy Showers & Thunderstorms to Close Out the Week

Summer-like warmth continues across the region all ahead of a cold front sitting out to the west that will bring a good chance for some heavy showers and thunderstorms as we close out the work week followed by cooler but dry conditions for this upcoming weekend. Radar and satellite this morning shows a complex of […]

Chilly Tonight…Gradual Warming Starting Sunday :)

You might just want to shut the windows tonight (unless you are like me and sleep with a couple layers of blankets¬†ūüôā ) as temperatures will dive down into the middle to even lower 40s overnight. Several factors will come together to allow this as our skies remain clear and winds light. Tomorrow begins one […]

Scattered Storms Today…Crashing Temperatures This Weekend

We’ll be returning to another fall-like preview in terms of temperatures again for the upcoming weekend but first we’ll have another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms for this afternoon ahead of an approaching cold front. Clouds have already begun to increase across the region with a few showers and storms on radar to the […]

Warmth Continues This Weekend

The warmer temperatures and very muggy conditions will persist as we begin the long holiday weekend with highs in near 90 and the heat index surpassing 95 degrees. There will be small chances for isolated thunderstorms during the day on Saturday and Sunday, but nothing that will be a total washout by any means if […]

Heat and Humidity Continues This Week

After several days of below normal temperatures for most of last week this week has been a complete 180 so far as the late summer heat and humidity has made a return to the area. Temperatures yesterday managed to make it into the middle 80s for highs but with the added moisture it really felt […]

Another Beautiful Day…Rain Chances Increasing

Another crisp fall-like start to our day as lows reached into the lower 50s again this morning as high pressure continues to reinforce our cool and dry air mass. We’ll continue to see sunshine and pleasant conditions today before our next chance of rain arrives for later tomorrow as an area of low pressure approaches […]

Continued Cooler & Dry

Our fall-like pattern continues on through much of this week with cooler than average temperatures and dry conditions. Yesterday’s highs only made it only into the lower 70s and the same will be expected for today with a few less clouds in the afternoon. We’ll relax the winds a bit as well since the area […]

Beautiful Saturday….Rain Chances Tonight/Early Sunday

Another beautiful day on tap for the area with humidity levels remaining in check and plenty of sunshine expected as temperatures get into the middle 80s by the time we hit the late afternoon.

Still Cool Today…Sunshine Continues Friday

What a dramatic drop in the temperatures yesterday as we were under the influence of a mature area of low pressure just to the north of the area that kept us in the clouds and even a few light showers from time to time. We actually experienced our high for the day quite early, 70 […]

Thunderstorms Likely Today…Dramatic Change Tomorrow

Some wind damage was observed near Prairieville (between Sterling and Dixon) with some tree limbs and power lines […]

Showers & Storms Likely Late Today…Continued Wet Tuesday

Our stretch of dry weather will be coming to an end today (I can hear the lawns rejoicing) as a slow moving frontal system begins to approach the area from the central plains. This front will allow a couple disturbances to track near the area allowing widespread showers and thunderstorms not only later today and […]

Dry Pattern Continues…Heat & Humidity Nearing

Our dry stretch of weather continues as high pressure remains firmly in control of our weather pattern across the region.

Spotty Showers End…Pleasant Next Few Days

Not everyone experienced showers and thunderstorms today as they remained pretty scattered but those that did got at least some rainfall out of them with most locations picking up another tenth to two tenths of an inch of precipitation in the gauge.¬† The heavier rainfall remained off to both the east and west of the […]

So Close! Big Rains Fall Just Shy of the Area

Thankfully we picked up a few tenths of an inch of rainfall earlier this morning as we ended our several day dry stretch. We could still use more though with another opportunity at some showers and thunderstorms this afternoon ahead of a weak cold front.¬†Some patchy fog this morning is possible¬†with the fresh moisture on […]

Pleasant Conditions To Continue

Clouds have been on the increase since late yesterday and this is all tied to a disturbance sliding along the stationary front to our south. The clouds should break by this morning allowing for sunshine once again and pleasant temperatures with highs in the lower 80s. A few rain showers will be possible as we […]

Beautiful Weather To Continue

A beautiful Monday we experienced across the area with much more comfortable temperatures and humidity levels now that the cold front has finally settled to the south of the area.
