Good morning bloggers,

It's here! The Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs will be hosting the opening night NFL game at Arrowhead Stadium tonight. We have some good news with our weather forecast as there is a window opening up that Patrick Mahomes would easily through a TD pass through it. He can throw a TD pass through the tightest of windows, so this large weather window is good news for the KC Chiefs offense tonight:

There was a disturbance tracking across the southern plains this morning as you can see above. There is rising motion, causing the rain that was falling as I was writing this blog, and for the rain to cut off we need the air to start sinking. The air is rising ahead of this disturbance as you can see in the dotted white line. This disturbance will pass through this afternoon and there will likely be a large window with sinking air which will shut off the rain. There may be some drizzle or mist, but that should be the heaviest the rain would be this evening for the game, and there is a pretty good chance it is dry or a very light mist for the game.

This area of rain will continue this morning, and then that disturbance will pass through. Here is the forecast from our latest KSHB weather model:

The coldest September 10th ever in KC history was 60° back in 1898, yes two century's ago, in the 1800s! Wow! 122 years ago. We should break another record today. Here is yesterday's record:

We will be monitoring this developing weather situation as we narrow in on that window of drier air that is approaching. We will prepare you for the Chiefs/Texans game on 41 Action News with special coverage today.

Thank you for sharing in this weather experience. Have a great Thursday, and GO CHIEFS!
