Good morning bloggers,
Kansas City averages 5.23″ in May and 5.23″ in June. The wettest 30 days of the year, on average, is from mid-May to mid-June. We are entering this period of time now. This means that Kansas City should get around 1.30″ every week at this time of the year. To get to that 1.30″ of rain in this second week of May, we will need a thunderstorm this evening. The chances of any significant thunderstorm activity over the next few days after today seems rather low at the moment. Oh, there are chances, but this next storm will become positively tilted and stretch out, getting stuck back to the west until it weakens. As a result we get this rainfall total forecast over the next seven days:
Most of Kansas is in the under 1″ range. One of the chances does arrive this evening:
This chance of thunderstorms is between around 6 PM and 10 PM tonight, and then the chance shifts east. A storm approaching now goes from a positive tilt to a negative tilt as it passes by, and then the next storm drops into the west and gets stuck out there for a few days. This is not good for our rain chances, or for the storm chasers out there.
