Rain, Rain, Go Away!


This weather has to be frustrating for those trying to harvest wheat and put up a hay crop. It is nice to have everything so lush and green going into the hot, dry summer months, but the general feeling from those in eastern Kansas is that we need a dry stretch of weather.

I'm posting a map from one of our computer models that shows the weather pattern will change for next week. It looks very much like a summer pattern taking hold with the stronger winds staying well north of Kansas. The high pressure system will set in overhead and the heat will be increasing across the Plains. In a typical summer, this high pressure system will not break down until late August or early September when strong cold fronts begin to approach from the north. This is also about the same time we can expect the humidity to go away. Feels like Costa Rica around here lately with all of this humidity in the air.
