Good afternoon bloggers,

Well, 1″ of rain just fell near KCI Airport.  The amounts are varying, so how much did you receive from this first wave. This is the first wave of energy around the first day of summer storm that is approaching.

The storm is shown above by the arrows I showed on the water vapor satellite picture from just after 2 PM today.  There were still some lingering thunderstorms near I-70.  The main storm will be spinning by on Thursday as you can see below.

Gary: Good Wednesday mornign to you sir!! Totaled .10 in 5 minuets of rain yesterday…Lawrence proper did a bit better but not by much. That gives my immediate location 2 inches in the past 9 weeks…I am for sure in a “rain slump”!!!! Would loved to have saved some that 9 inches that fell in 3 hours the night of the eclipse (turned out that was the 100 year flood for the Washington Creek Valley) and used 2-3 inches right now. But…that is not the way it works and that is weather in Kansas…always keeps you guessing!!!! I’m going with… Read more »

We are all going to get dry slotted today. The storms won’t develop until it’s east of us, disgusting. Seems like the drought played areas are the target now,and we are the new doughnut hole down to the south. NWS still has good percentage changes for rain today bit they need to trim them down to 20-30% chances

The computer models and Gary don’t think it will make it to KC. That’s a lot of rain that’s going to just fall apart according to powercast.

Just shy of 0.2″ in NW Lawrence.

All the models showing those storms falling apart but they look potent right now… not sure I buy into them NOT making it here between 11 PM and 2 AM.

And tomorrow looks like a good shot of late Spring/early Summer severe weather risks with all modes of severe possible, though strong tornado risk is minimal definitely a risk for some spin ups, large hail, and damaging winds like Western Kansas has right now.

3.4 inches in one hour and still pouring in NW Republic County. That’s after 1.15 last night.

That explains the flash flood boxes on radar. Looks like you’ll get a whole lot more before it’s over.

Well in Downtown Independence, we got an absolute deluge for about 20 minutes straight. Not sure how much fell but it had to be about an inch or so.

Absolutely incredible.
For the fourth time in as many weeks, a wall of water was headed straight for W Lenexa and we only managed about 0.05″ as the storms collapsed and split right around us. The previous occurrences had all been at night. To watch it happen again during the day was almost surreal.
At this point, I almost feel cursed as it seems nearly impossible to get any significant precipitation.

Don’t you know? It’s called the Lenexa Split. 😉

Now imagine you had crops and animals depending on the rain, not just a lawn for aesthetic purposes. Its a lunch in the gut when you get missed like that. Who cares if it ever rains in the city, it’s mostly just a collection of concrete and asphalt with some grass sprinkled in. Im just grumpy i missed it too. Here’s to some more rain for everyone

I never knew I could be so emotionally invested in the weather until I had crops. “A punch in the gut” is an apt description!

If weather alone isn’t enough uncertainty, just add trade-war to the equation.

At least we finally got a storm that wasn’t in the middle of the night. Too bad I missed the whole thing while in a meeting.
