KSStorm.Info Briefing: Tuesday, October 5th

Sunshine across Kansas today with highs in the upper 80's and low 80s. A back door cold front crosses the state from the northeast to southwest tonight, cooling temperatures a bit for tomorrow.

A sharp, yet fairly narrow ridge of high pressure in the mid and upper troposphere is anchored today from New Mexico northeast into Nebraska and South Dakota. This keeps us in what are really pretty stagnant weather conditions for another day. Highs generally low 80’s with a few upper 70’s in the northwest and east.

Tomorrow will generally be cooler after the passage of a back door cold front through the eastern 2/3 of the state late today into overnight.

Green is wetter air, tan is drier air. Increasing humidity will be east of the front, which will move west before stalling about 2/3 the way across Kansas

A fairly significant pattern change will be occurring later in the week as the stagnant upper flow regime will finally break down and we see increasing west-southwest flow aloft encroaching on the Colorado Rockies and adjacent High Plains. This will lead to a strong warm up Thursday through Saturday, with records potential in danger Saturday afternoon. More detail on that and the changes for showers Sunday as we get closer.
