A couple of days ago I was talking about a cold front slipping southward down the eastern plains, and into the local area tonight or tomorrow. That's not going to happen. The front just will not have enough of a push to get this far south.

The models are forecasting a similar situation next weekend. The jet stream is starting to dig a little further southward across the northern US. So with time these cold fronts will get a little stronger, and will eventually get this far south. Meteorological fall begins Thursday, and like most of you I am ready for a break from the heat.

Looking Ahead To Katia.

ECMWF 850 Wind Speed Swatch Forecast.
Valid From 6 PM MDT Aug 28 - 6 PM MDT Sept 6, 2011.

A tropical wave located a couple hundred miles SSE of the Cape Verde Islands this morning, continues to strengthen as it moves westward. It has the potential to become a Tropical Storm, and most likely a Hurricane later this week. If this happens it will be named Katia. Last nights 00Z/6 PM MDT run of the ECMWF model was forecasting it to develop into another Major Hurricane. The forecast map above has it approaching the Bahamas in about 10 days. Time will tell.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
