Good Wednesday bloggers,

This is a map of the upper level flow for next Tuesday. The "heat wave creating machine" also know as an upper level high will be located on the west coast of the USA. A trough will be diving south across the middle of the USA. The faster and farther east this trough drops south, the less rain we will see. It will still deliver a rather cold change. We go into detail below.


We are in for some interesting weather changes next week. They will start happening around Labor Day. We will get a taste of Summer through Sunday, perhaps lasting into Monday, and then a big taste of fall Tuesday and Wednesday, just in time for NFL football.

A weak cold front moves through Thursday dropping our highs from the 80s to 70s. The front will return as a warm front Saturday and could bring a few thunderstorms.

The forecast Sunday-Tuesday is complex as we will have a cold front arrive Sunday, but there are signs it could stall near I-70. This could mean Labor Day will see highs range from 65-70 north to 90 south. This would also mean a chance of a few thunderstorms. A stronger storm system arrives Tuesday and could bring widespread rain and thunderstorms as a much colder air mass blasts in. The new data has the storm getting its act together farther east, so in that case we would not see much rain. This is far from set in stone.

Regardless of how much rain we see, it looks like highs will at least drop to the 60s with lows in the 40s next Tuesday and Wednesday, lasting into the Superbowl Champions first game.

The video below has no audio, but it is a powercast that goes day by day from today through Tuesday.

Have a great rest of your week and stay healthy.
