I mean, really.
We’re either burning up like last summer, water logged like this one or scratching our heads about snowstorms in May or how bad last year’s Kansas City Chiefs team was.
Everything else seems almost incidental at times.
And who better to weigh in on both topics than KSHB weather wonk Gary Lezak?
As for our current dripping wet, cool-as-a-cucumber state of affairs, “It’s the same weather pattern we’ve been in from this past winter,” Lezak says. “I forecast there would be a lot more precipitation than last summer and it would be a lot cooler. And last summer we had around 20 days where it was over 100 degrees and this year we’ve had zero.
“The drought has ended in Kansas City, however Kansas City only had 2 1/2 inches of rain in July and Wichita had more than three times that. So we’re just barely out of the drought, but I’m expecting August to be really wet.”
“Well, it depends quarterback Alex Smith and his ability to improvise,” Lezak says. “The Chiefs have a lot of talent, so I’m predicting a 10-6 season and they have a chance to win the division. If (Denver QB) Peyton Manning stays healthy, probably not, but I’m not expecting Peyton Manning to stay healthy.”
As for this fall’s weather, stay tuned, Lezak says.
“Remember to LRC? Lezak’s Recurring Cycle is up in the fall, so a new pattern will set up in less than two months – between now and October 1st.”
