Good Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.  I hope your week has been great!  Mine is pretty good just busy as normal.  I am super bored with the weather.  August, September and October are so boring around here.  Our weather starts really picking back up in November and lasts into July.

Right now we have been dealing with the clouds from Irma.

The rain has stayed just east, but we have the thicker clouds.  However, Irma will eject out tomorrow and sunshine returns.

We will start a warming trend with temperatures around 90 into the weekend.  Next system will start to effect us on Saturday.

However, I think the better chances for rain will hold off until Saturday night and Sunday morning.  Next system after that is Tuesday.

This system will keep temperatures warm but rain chances around through the middle of the week.  So move to next Thursday, I want to look at the Heady Pattern or CPH (Cycling Pattern Hypothesis.

This is interesting.  The Jet Stream is getting strong and diving system into the central plains.  Now, we are still on the old pattern (The way systems react).  However, the new cycle has been going for a while but reacting to the old pattern.  The cycle is the amount of dates it takes for a system to repeat.  The new pattern will start here in about two weeks, so it will be very interesting to see how the new cycle reacts with the new pattern.  We have slid back into a La Nina, this places an important roll on how long the cycle will be.  This year we will be on a longer cycle once again.  I have it fairly well pegged out, but I still want to test it a couple more weeks.

Long range forecast below.
