 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 6:00 am CDT on October 25, 2014


... On this date in weather history...

In 2012... Hurricane Sandy... soon to be known as super
storm Sandy... began a 6 day rampage along the entire East
Coast from Florida to Maine. Her effects would
eventually be felt as far west as West Virginia and
Wisconsin. Reaching peak intensity as a category 3
hurricane when she hit Cuba... she reached the United
States when she made landfall in South Florida as a
tropical storm. Flooding and beach erosion were
obviously significant.Details on Sandy's effects from
the Carolinas to the northeast United States are
discussed for the dates on which these areas were
affected.

&&

In 1919... Bismarck North Dakota experienced its earliest
below zero temperature and by quite a margin. The
Mercury plunged to 10 below zero.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 
650 am CDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Short term...(today through monday) 
issued at 245 am CDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


A surface trough will slip south across central and eastern Kansas 
with slightly drier air advecting briefly into the I-70 corridor 
today. Some patchy early morning fog can be expected along and 
just south of the boundary over parts of the forecast area. 
Otherwise the upper ridge axis over The Rockies will slide east 
across the plains by this evening...providing the area with a 
sunny and unseasonably warm day with a near record high at 
Wichita. Temperatures are expected to warm slightly into Sunday 
with stronger southerly flow across the area with near record 
highs in some areas again. An upper trough will advance eastward 
across the western Continental U.S. During Sunday and across middle-America 
on Monday. The associated surface cold front is expected to 
move into central Kansas early in the day with passage across 
southeast Kansas during Monday evening. The front is expected 
to encounter fairly modest low level moisture as the flow veers 
southwesterly with the better moisture developing east of the 
forecast area by Monday night. However for now will maintain 
slight probability of precipitation along/west of the Turnpike Monday night with 
somewhat higher/modest chances across southeast Kansas. 


Darmofal 


Long term...(tuesday through friday) 
issued at 245 am CDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


The upper trough will continue to move east across the Great 
Lakes during Tuesday with additional shortwave energy in its 
wake helping to form a deeper mean longwave across the eastern 
Continental U.S. Toward the end of the week. This looks to result in 
progressively cooler air settling south across the Midwest 
and Lower Plains with generally dry weather.
