Email News Alerts

This Afternoon/Evening:

We’ve made it to Thursday, but we have to deal with showers and thunderstorms. These storms were a bit stronger earlier today when they moved through central North Dakota. They will still bring some heavy rainfall to the area, but nothing severe is expected. Rainfall amounts will be around 0.25” for some. Because of this activity, temperatures may end up being slightly cooler than expected today.

Tonight:

The sky will clear for the early portion of the night, but clouds will increase after Midnight, and there will be some showers and storms rolling though during the night. Not expecting severe weather, but a few stronger storms are certainly possible.

Friday:

After the storms move out Friday morning, the rest of the day should be mostly sunny, with highs into the 70s and 80s. The wind will be a bit breezy through the afternoon, but overall it will be a great summer afternoon.

Extended Forecast

Changes are in store for the upcoming weekend. A cold front will be moving through on Saturday, and will bring a threat for thunderstorms. Highs will still be in the 80s on Saturday, but after the front moves through, it will be breezy and cooler on Sunday, with highs in the 70s. High pressure builds in for Monday and Tuesday, so expect a lot of sunshine, and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Have a good evening!

Being an “army brat” most of his life, he grew up in many different states in the Midwest, and even another country. Aaron and his family lived in Germany for 3 years, before moving to Manhattan, Kansas in 2001. He calls Kansas his home state, having gone to junior high, high school and college there. He earned in Bachelors of Science degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of Kansas in 2012. While he was there, he did Undergraduate research on river flooding, which included a focus on the Red River. After his sophomore year, he began an internship at KSFY, and eventually worked to become a weather producer. Aside from forecasting the weather, he participated in storm chasing. During his time at the University of Kansas, he and some of his colleagues chased storms across Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Missouri, and Iowa. After the Super Outbreak of 2011, Aaron and his colleagues raised $3000 and collected food and water to take to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, which was ravaged by and EF4 tornado on April 27, 2011. His group spent a week there, helping clean up debris left over from the tornado. It was an eye opening experience for him, having not seen that kind of devastation in person before. Aaron has always been passionate about weather, and gets reminded about watching The Weather Channel when he was 3, at family gatherings. When he isn’t forecasting, Aaron enjoys swimming, running, and cheering on the Kansas Jayhawks.
