Good Sunday bloggers,
We are tracking a disturbance southwest of Oklahoma City. This disturbance will be heading northeast along I-35 and should keep the rain and thunderstorms mostly alive as they approach eastern Kansas.
Here is the Kansas City weather time line for today.
SUNDAY 3 PM: The rain will move in from the southwest between 11 AM and 1 PM. It is going to try very hard to break up. But, there should be enough leftover so all can see rain. Temperatures will drop to the 70s in the rain areas.
SUNDAY 3 PM-7 PM: We will see areas of rain and thunderstorms cross all locations from south to north as the disturbance in Oklahoma tracks to the west. Should it track farther south and east, then the rain will be more widespread.
MONDAY MORNING: The other part of the story will be the slight fall feel on Monday. The disturbance from the south will merge with a system from the northwest, becoming an August storm system in southeast Nebraska. So, our area will get on the back side of this newly formed system on Monday. This will mean gusty northwest winds, clouds and a few rain showers with temperatures in the 60s and 70s.
MONDAY AFTERNOON: The summer storm system will be moving into Iowa. It will be in the 60s and 70s around here with a northwest breeze 10-25 mph along with a few rain showers. So, it will feel a bit like fall. Lows Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the 50s and 60s, still a slight fall feel. The 90s will return next weekend, however.
Have a great week and hopefully your yard or farm gets a good drink of water. This is the last decent chance of rain for awhile.
