Good Sunday bloggers,
Today will be a very good day for the yards and farms as waves of rain and thunderstorms will affect most locations across eastern Kansas and all of Missouri. There is no threat of severe weather, but some locations may experience flash flooding. Flooding is the number one severe weather killer. Remember, “TURN AROUND DON’T DROWN.”
KCI is officially around 2″ below average rainfall for the year and we will likely make up this deficit the next few days, if not today.
We have a wave of rain and thunderstorms moving north up I-35 this morning and this will be followed by 1-2 more disturbances. This radar image from 630 AM Sunday shows the disturbances lined up south into west Texas.
SUNDAY AFTERNOON: The first wave of rain and thunderstorms will move through this morning, so there may be a break between noon and 3 PM. The clouds and rain will keep highs today between 70° and 75°. After 3 PM rain and thunderstorms will rapidly increase.
SUNDAY EVENING: Rain and T-Storms will be widespread with the heaviest along and east of I-35.
MONDAY MORNING: The rain will end after 10 PM tonight. There will be little to no wind overnight, so there is the chance of dense fog during the Monday AM rush hour with lows 60-65.
MONDAY AFTERNOON: It will end up being a nice afternoon after any morning fog and low clouds burn off. We will then turn our attention to western Nebraska as the next disturbance moves out of the Rockies. A new area of rain and thunderstorms is likely to form out there Monday evening, track across Nebraska and possibly turn southeast into northern Missouri early Tuesday.
TUESDAY: There is going to be a chance of rain and thunderstorms, especially during the morning. The exact location of the thunderstorm cluster is yet to be determined.
Total rainfall today-Tuesday will be .50″ to 2″ across the area. A few locations could see more. There will also be rain chances Wednesday-Saturday. The weather is acting like it is the wettest time of year, but it is not acting like severe weather season. Even though we have rain chances almost every day during the next 7 days, the severe threat is little to none.
So, this is great news for the yards and farms and the moderate drought is likely on the way out.
Have a great week,
