Wind and more wind - pattern this week is interesting

Happy Monday everybody. Did everybody enjoy the Super Bowl or did you watch for the commercials? I only caught about 30% of the game and commercials because of work, but I thought the Doritos spot with the baby was pretty good.

On to weather now and you should be ready for some very windy conditions the next couple of days. We had a handful of grass fires to cover Sunday afternoon and I'm sure there will be a few more coming up today and Tuesday. Wind gusts will likely exceed 40 today and 30 on Tuesday. The wind already causing some tree damage in Kansas City. This picture courtesy of KMBC-Channel 9.

We don't have any big storm systems coming through this week. Expect it to stay dry through at least Saturday as a HUGE high pressure system builds up across the western half of the country. It will be very interesting because Kansas will be on the dividing line between much colder air just east of us and springlike weather to the west.

The weather should get active again in just another few weeks. Winter isn't over yet, and we will have some more chances for snow coming before springtime sets in for good.
