Crazy Prediciton?

Sometimes I feel bold enough to step out on a limb with my forecasting and almost 2 weeks ago, I made the prediction that we wouldn't have anymore 100 degree days in Wichita. It was published in the Wichita Eagle and I ended up getting a great deal of feedback from friends and family. I'm still holding to that prediction, even though we've had some recent 100 degree days in western Kansas. I just don't see the weather pattern anytime soon allowing for it to get that hot around here. Since I made that prediction, our hottest day has been 92 in Wichita, but Medicine Lodge and Hill City have had 100 degree weather.

What did you think about our weather over the weekend? It sure felt like fall. Lows Sunday morning were in the 40s around the state. Wichita has had only 7 days with above normal temperatures in the month of August. And we finish the month with highs in the middle 70s. Very crazy. Our weather pattern has been very exciting lately. We have a system coming this way by midweek that might bring some rain, then we focus on a bigger system for the holiday weekend. We'll have details on the air this week as we get ready for the unofficial end to summer.

The Kansas State Fair is coming up. I'll be talking about it later in the week. Have a good one.

The weather was great this past week and these last few days were no exception. What great weather for the airshow, just phenomenal!!! Hope everyone took the opportunity to enjoy this FREE event!

This weather really gets you in the mood for fall and seeing all the mums at Lowes & Walmart makes me think that summer is really coming to a close! I'm ready for football, pumpkin patches, the state fair and more.

Speaking of State Fair, when do you and Millie anticipate being at the fair this year? I sure hope we can come and see you both! Gosh I can't believe it's already time for the State Fair again!

Keep up the great work! Lovin' your prediction for the Wichita area. It don't get much better than this!
