Good Tuesday afternoon!  I hope your week is going great so far.  Mine is pretty good.  I am getting work done here at home over the past several hours and then I will head into work.  I am actually going to try to get outside for just a bit and do a few things before I head in today.  The temperatures again today aren’t so bad.  Well when you compare them to what we have seen over the past couple of weeks.  We continue to see a lot of clouds today with temperatures in the 80s across the region.  Our average highs are in the lower 90s for this time of the year.

We will have a few pop-up thunderstorms later today.  Most of these will be across central, NE OK and parts of AR.

This Afternoon

The best chances for thunderstorms will stay along the front across OK and AR.  Much of the same on Wednesday, a few scattered thunderstorms popping up.

Wednesday Evening

We will also watch our next wave dropping south across central and western KS.  This wave will sink in with a continued chance for a few thunderstorms on Friday and Saturday.

By late in the weekend, we will see the heat building back in which will stick around for next week with the humidity.

Sunday 500

Our old 49 day cycle is still plugging along as it will continue to for the next two months.  However, our new cycle is completely in place now and is slowly becoming the dominant cycle for the next 10-11 months or so.  I will continue to update you on this as this pattern comes to and end and we work into our new pattern here shortly.
