Unseasonably Cool Weather Expected This Week

By  | 

After a hot week that consisted of an average high temperature of 96.3° in Topeka a dip in the jet stream will bring cooler weather to the eastern half of the US including northeast Kansas. This pattern is similar to what we experienced earlier in the month, the difference this pattern will last longer than 6 days. Highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s and even 50s dominate the 8 day forecast everyday with on and off rain chances especially Wednesday but a few isolated storms are possible Thursday and maybe even Friday or Saturday but models have been inconsistent beyond Wednesday so have a dry forecast all week with rain chances Wednesday and Thursday but certainly something to keep an eye on. The Climate Prediction Center is forecasting below average temperatures and even above average precipitation to continue in the 8-14 day outlook through August 10th. What is supposed to be the hottest time of the year, the final week of July and first week of August is going to feel more like September.
