“The drought has continued through fall and there is no true end in sight right now,” says KSHB TV weather wonk Gary Lezak. “The weather pattern sets up according to my ‘Lezak’s Recurring Cycle,’ or LRC.
“This weather pattern is now cycling and we are still identifying the features that will repeat regularly through the coming winter, spring, and into next summer.”
Uh, that’s the good news. Now the bad.
“Superstorm Sandy is a type of storm that will hit the east coast a few times this winter,” Lezak says, “but it won’t have a hurricane inside of it next time. But it will likely be a blizzard, so, the northeast coast is going to be one hot spot for winter weather.
“Another hot spot is near the Great Lakes. Kansas City is NOT near one of these hot spots and snowfall will likely again be below average this winter.”
