Cold, cloudy start to the weekend

Snow flurries possible early Saturday

February 10, 2006


Keep the coats, hats and gloves handy - cold weather, cloudy skies and maybe even some snow flurries are moving in for the weekend, says Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.

"Northwest winds will usher in some cooler air today," Schack said.

At 8:15 a.m., the temperature at Lawrence Municipal Airport was 29 degrees, the humidity was 78 percent and winds were from the northwest at 5 mph, making the windchill 24 degrees. The average low temperature for this date is 24 degrees. The record low was minus 6, set in 1899.

"It's going to be kind of breezy this afternoon," Schack said. Winds will be from the northwest at 12 to 18 mph, she said.

"We're heading up to 41 degrees today," Schack said. "Our temperatures are just below average."

The average high for this date is 44 degrees. The record high was 78 degrees, set in 1932.

"We do have some sunshine for the midday, then clouds thickening up in the afternoon," she said. "By tomorrow morning, there's a chance for a few flurries."

Saturday's morning low will be 20 degrees, with the high temperature climbing to 30 on Saturday afternoon, she said.

"It looks like a cold start to the weekend on Saturday," she said. "Windchills will be in the teens."

Skies will be mostly cloudy, with northwest winds 15 to 20 mph, gusting up to 25 mph, Schack said.

Sunday's skies will be mostly sunny, with the morning low dropping to 12 degrees, she said. Sunday's afternoon high will climb to 39 degrees, she said.

silencio, hmmm...maybe if more of us did the water thing, coordinating our time in multiple waves throughout the day, and charting for wind direction and the color of Jennifer Schack's onscreen ensamble...maybe that's the trick? or, we could just try putting a new hole in the roof of the chemistry building at KU by firing a very big rock from a quarry [ref recent 100-years-ago collumn] fact, I think we should fire big rocks up into the sky every day until it rains. make sure all rocks land on the KU it during classes for maximum effect.
how's that?

Why is KUweatherman asking "Are you five?"

bearded_gnome 12 years, 2 months ago

he's a weatherman, and sometimes they emit random letters and numbers?

either that, or he's afflicted by the rampant syncicism on the KU campus. or the rampant synicism, either one.

its one-more-bob you're thinking of, and he could stand before a weather chart/map, and use his mighty cavalry sword...way coooool!

I think we already are that synical club you speak of...4/5 posts on here seem to be poking un at what's in the 'cast or, what should be in the 'cast, and how to do it better.
wonder if Jennifer reads this space?
btw, silencio, if you're really into weather, and have a scanner, punch in radio frequency 121.225. that's the automated weather beacon at the lawrence airport. its rather useful.
so, lets find a medieval giant catipult, capable of hurling rockx the size of a VW. then we develop certain rites to perform before and during and after the hurling/catipulting. don't know if we'd want to get mayan and sacrifice a virgin...
