Warm December week ahead

Jeff Foltz - Caldwell
Hope everyone had a great weekend. This is going to be an unbelievable week for December. Record warmth is possible as temperatures soar into the 60s and even a few 70s may show up by the end of the week. So what's going on with this crazy weather?

The jest stream is positioned just north of us and several weaker storms will be traveling from west to east through the central and northern Plains. There's very little moisture hanging around, so most of the systems will come through and do little more than shift the wind direction. This is just a temporary break in the stormy pattern that will likely be back very soon. 

A huge buckle in the jet stream will be taking shape at the end of the week. Some colder air will be sliding south from Canada as a storm tries to form in the southern Plains by the weekend. So when will the milder weather end? Right now, it looks like a stronger front will push through Friday night into Saturday and that will be the end of the unseasonably warm stretch for now. 

There is a possibility for some rain or snow next week in parts of the Plains. It's unclear if it will be in Kansas or setup just south and east of our area. Stick with us throughout the week to see what happens.
