Good Friday bloggers,

The weekend is here and we are going to see a series of weather changes.

The wind will likely gust to 40-50 mph or even to 55 mph Saturday ahead of a cold front that will make Sunday quite different weather wise. We also need rain as we are still "O" for October.

Take a look at the percent of average rainfall over the last 30 days in our area. It is quite low with locations from Emporia, KS to Adrian, MO seeing around 5% or less of average rainfall. KC is around 20%. Not sure why the bigger map shows 18%, but its all dry.

Across the region it is just as dry. This has been good for the corn and soybean harvest along with the hard red winter wheat planting, but now it is time for rain.

There are 2-3 rain chances over the course of the next 7 days.

We go over all of this changing weather in the video below.

Have a great weekend and stay healthy.
