Good Sunday bloggers,

We are one week away from the Chiefs playing in the Super Bowl! When it has been 50 years since the last time we could say that, it makes it hard to believe. But, still incredibly exciting. The weather down there for the game looks great with highs 70-75, dry with a northwest wind 5-15 mph. Let's go day by day for our weather and end with a look at Miami before the game.

SUNDAY: We have areas of freezing fog this morning causing slick spots along with refreezing of water from melted snow. If your car is parked outside it likely has a layer of frost on it. So, the ice scraper may come in handy. The rest of the day will be partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the 30s. It will be 50 or higher not that far away from Emporia and locations to the west.

MONDAY: We may see more areas of freezing fog during the morning, otherwise it will be another mostly cloudy and cold day with highs in the 30s.

TUESDAY: The next system to track will move from the western Plains to Arkansas and Texas. It should stay south of KC which means we see more clouds and perhaps some snow showers. We will watch this system closely as it could come farther north, bringing us more snow than we are currently forecasting. Highs will be in the 30s once again.

WEDNESDAY: This will likely be another cloudy day with highs in the 30s. If we see any sun, temperatures could rise to the low 40s.

THURSDAY: Another small system could bring us rain or snow. It will be the 4th straight week with a storm on Thursday into Friday, but this one looks considerably weaker than its predecessors.

FRIDAY: We widened the view in case you were heading to Miami. The weather looks mostly calm across the USA, but there is a system tracking across the southeast USA. This could bring a period of rain and thunderstorms to Miami Friday night into Saturday. We will see more clouds with highs 35-45.

SATURDAY: We should finally see the sun with highs in the 40s. You can see the band of rain and a few thunderstorms moving through Miami. Look at that high, 77! Miami is on the southern part of a winter storm moving through the northeast USA.

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY: The weather looks pretty nice across the USA as the storm exits New England and the rain is far, far away from Miami. It is good Super Bowl party weather across the country, just don't drink/text and drive. We may see highs in the 50s.

Have a great week and GO CHIEFS!
