What Can You Do?

I am driving home from filling in on the Weekend Breakfast Show this morning and all of a sudden I see it. No! I can't be. Blue skies! ARGH!!!!

Why am I upset about seeing blue skies? I have been forecasting cloudy/overcast skies for today since Saturday morning. When you forecast for cloudy skies and temperatures only rising 6-7 degrees over the course of the day, sunshine is a killer.

So what is a meteorologist supposed to do? Look at the satellite imagery and see what the heck is going on. This morning all satellite imagery was showing overcast skies all the way back to Kansas and western Oklahoma. Where did the clouds go? Well here you go. Take a look at this.

Visible satellite image taken at 11:02pm CT.

Are you kidding me?!?!?!?! The ONLY hole of sunshine in the entire middle portion of the country sits right over the northern half of the viewing area. ACK!
