Monday's weather

November 19, 2011

A few isolated showers and storms may develop over the High Plains today! Though these storms will be ‘hit-or-miss,’ a few lucky folks could receive anywhere from around .01” to upwards of .10” of rainfall! It’s unfortunate that we can’t get a widespread heavy rainfall all day, but in this kind of drought, we’ll take what we can get, even if it is sporadic in coverage! Mostly cloudy conditions will be present, and our afternoon high temperatures will struggle to reach into the upper 50s.

Friday's weather forecast

November 17, 2011

I've got some good news, and some bad news. The good news is. Friday
afternoon's high temperatures will be much warmer, rising into the upper 60s to mid 70s across the region!
The bad news is. southwesterly winds will be strong blowing around at 20-30 mph with higher gusts possible. Low relative
humidities, strong winds and lots of dry fuel across the region will lead to elevated fire weather conditions, so be careful out there!
