September 29th, 2009:
Wednesday will be another very warm and windy day. High temperatures will likely end up 10 to 15 degrees above normal! Below is a model depiction showing the warm "prod" of air along and east of the Rockies on Wednesday:
South to southwest winds gusting over 35 mph will prevail along and east of the mountains. This will continue to dry the airmass out, so we are not concerned about showers or storms. Right now, the best shot for storms looks to reside Wednesday night in western Kansas.
The cold front will roar through on Wednesday night, bringing much cooler weather to our area. Temperatures that are 10 to 15 degrees above normal on Wednesday, will be about 15 degrees below normal on Thursday. That's right, get ready for a 25 to 30 degree cooldown, with strong wind to boot.
The above map looks a bit different from it's 24 hour predecessor. The good news is that the core of the cold air and the strongest energy will depart well to our northeast. So other than a sharp cooldown and some wind, that should be about it.
