Trading Seattle weather for Kansas weather

Crazy weather in July to say the least
I don't know about you, but for awhile this week, I've started to feel like we traded Kansas weather for Seattle. It's been cloudy, mild, some light rain showers, and the vegetation is nice and green. The average high in Seattle for this time of the year is 76 while in Kansas, it's 93. So needless to say, we have been spoiled this week and when the 90s return by Sunday, we will figure out really fast that it is still very much summertime. 

Weather pattern at the start of next week. The high pressure will allow for hotter weather to overspread the area
While some of you might be moaning and groaning that the hotter weather is coming back, I'll offer up this bit of good news. It doesn't look like the big dome of high pressure will ever be all that strong in the coming weeks. So it's not very likely that we will see a bunch of 100s in Kansas over the next weeks. Part of that too is the fact we've had some nice rains in the last few months, and with moisture in the soil and green vegetation, that should keep temperatures from getting out of control like the summers of 2011 and 2012 when we just couldn't get rid of the 100s. 

So enjoy what is left of summer, even if you are not a fan of the 90s (the temperatures... not the decade)  Autumn officially begins in just 2 months. Where does time go? Have a great weekend.
