KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Good morning bloggers,

How about those Chiefs! What a game. Three touchdowns for Travis Kelce as Patrick Mahomes is magical once again!

The Chiefs squeak out a 30-27victory out in Los Angeles, and now the Los Angeles Rams are heading to Kansas City, the Super Bowl Champion Rams who have fallen apart this year. Remember, anyone can win on any given Sunday, so the Chiefs will be focused!

The weather for next Sunday has a few challenges we are monitoring as this new LRC sets up. Before we get to the weather pattern forming, let's begin with great start to this week:

Great weather

This forecast map, above, shows the calm weather from Los Angeles to Chicago on Tuesday, and this map below shows the developing weather pattern on Thanksgiving Day:

Okay, I know you may be saying, what do these maps mean? There are differences in these three models for Thanksgiving Day. The Euro forms the storm closer to Kansas City. This slight difference may prove the difference between a chance of rain or snow for the Plaza Lighting Thursday and dry for Thursday.

For now, let's enjoy this nice warming trend and we will tweak this weather forecast after the new data rolls in tonight.
