Severe Weather Risks This Evening Affected By Afternoon Thunderstorms

Good evening bloggers,



Thunderstorms moved through around 2:30 PM this afternoon with some wind gusts to over 40 mph. I didn’t see any hail reported, but I am sure there was some.  Now we are on the back side of this wave and we have sinking air. This will likely keep the thunderstorms from reforming at least for a little while. We are still monitoring this developing storm closely, but at first glance it appears the evening thunderstorms will hold off until much later on.


Can you see the bubble high?

    Pitch black around 2:30. Rained hard with impressive gust front for about 15 min in Olathe.

    Gary, KMBZ Parks had a field day on the air talking about the maps that you posted on facebok. And reading those comments gave me a good laugh.
    I know they were comparison maps, and they are remarably similar. Can’t make this stuff up. LRC !

    I was about to ask if these storms would affect the ones tonight. Guess that answers my question.

    Gary, I have a question.
    At present, there is just one county under watch that marginally falls with the KSHB “viewing area” and it’s way off to the NE and along the Iowa border.
    Is there an FCC regulation that requires KSHB to post weather watch information on the screen at all times? Otherwise, why must over 10% of my television screen be obscured by a graphic that effects and informs a few people over 150 miles from Kansas City?

      No, not when we can clearly show there is no risk at all. They will cancel that very soon. We do not need to show that watch.

    In Kirksville we got .74″ of rain from the storm that just came through. Most of the state has received above average rainfall – before this rainfall, we were about 3″ below average rainfall for the year.

    Only a trace here, was hoping for a good rain, but it fell apart before getting here. When is the next chance of a good rain and will it only be hit or miss like this?

    Doing exactly like the “non ice” ice storm did. Ridge just tore that storm apart!!

    That really stinks, all those forecasts for rain, and poof. Was really hoping it would turn wet up here.
