Good morning and Happy Easter,

Thunderstorms have been producing some severe weather, but mostly beneficial rainfall. Here are the severe weather reports from the past two days:

Dimmitt, TX is located just southwest of Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle and there was a well videotaped tornado there two days ago. It was an isolated supercell thunderstorm that produced it.  Then, yesterday we had these severe weather reports:

There was at least one tornado reported in the northwest corner of Missouri on Saturday evening. These thunderstorms weakened as they approached Kansas City, but still produced some nice rainfall amounts in a few spots. I had 1.43″ of rain from these past two days in Overland Park.

Today’s severe weather outlook has a slight risk from around Childress, TX northeast to near Joplin, MO.  The risk is fairly low, but each thunderstorm still needs to be monitored closely. This pattern that become much wetter at the end of March is continuing. Here is the ten day outlook for rainfall between now and the 25th of the month:

It is showing a bit less than it had been showing near KC. Let’s see how this sets up in the next few days. Tuesday and Wednesday have my attention right now.

Have a great day and thank you for participating in this weather experience.

Gary
