Summertime in Kansas

This week looks hot with temperatures pushing 100 for many areas in the west. We are finally, for the first time this summer, starting to see what looks like a typical July weather pattern. The storm track goes north of Kansas, and we will be placed under a high pressure system in the upper atmosphere. So there will no doubt be more dry days, than wet ones in the days ahead. It also means the heat will be here to stay through the next several days.

Millie will have a photo album up on here in a few days. As part of the website redesign, we are adding a small section for her, so be sure to look for it soon. It's amazing to me how many people continue to come forward and say how much they enjoy seeing her in the weather center. And now I see a promotion running on KWCH with her in the Channel 12 booth at the state fair (hard to believe we are just a few months away from the 2010 state fair)

Some exciting news for me, as I will begin a 3 year term serving on the AMS Broadcast Board beginning January 1, 2011. This is a national board, made up of 12 individuals who will guide the direction of the certification program for broadcast meteorologists. So as part of the board, I'll be looking at the work of other broadcasters from across the nation, grading them on different criteria necessary to become certified. I'll also help plan the annual conference that will be held in Oklahoma City next June. So this is an exciting step for me and I'm sure I'll reference it in future blogs when something comes up. Have a great week.

I know this may seem ridiculous to ask since I have lived in Kansas all my life, but now 7 months pregnant I have to ask if anyone can give me an educated guess as to how long this high heat/humidity will last this summer? When could I expect relief? Please don't say by my due date (10/10/10). When do you think we will return to the 80's?
