Keep the Predictions Coming

If you would like to submit a guess as to when Wichita will get its first 1 inch of snow, please submit it before Sunday. Just pick a date, and time (in case two people pick the same date) and as soon as it happens, I'll see about getting a prize out to the winner. We will use Mid-Continent Airport as the official reading.

The weather pattern is about to change next week. We've been talking about the possibility of a significant storm before Thanksgiving, and it still looks on track. We are not sure yet as to if it will be snow, rain, or none of the above, but one thing is looking more and more certain, it will turn cold toward the end of next week. So, be prepared to stay indoors for Thanksgiving this year because if the models are correct (and sometimes they are), we could be looking at highs in the 30s to near 40 degrees by the second part of next week. I've posted a snapshot of the jet stream for 6 p.m. Tuesday. You can see the huge buckle developing to our west, and this is what we will watch closely next week. We have to be careful about the predictions we make this far in advance, but with so many people expected to travel next week, we want you to have an early heads up. That's the benefit of being a KWCH blogger!
