Good morning bloggers,
A steadily growing area of rain is drifting northeast across Kansas. It will be a wet and rainy day in KC with a few spots receiving 1 to 2 inches of rain. The heaviest rain early this morning was located over southern Kansas with a disturbance spinning around. The same pattern continues to cycle, and we can go all the way back to the beginning of this pattern in cycle 1. Look at the satellite picture from that day:
And, look at our forecast from this October 10th day:
These pictures were taken from what I wrote 342 days ago, or exactly on cycle from the 47-48 day cycle, and remember, Hurricane Nate had just come inland a few days earlier in almost the exact spot the Tropical Storm Gordon tracked.
A new and unique pattern will be setting up in a few weeks, and for now, it is still the same, just the September version. The rain was increasing as I was writing this. Here is the KC timeline:
Kansas City Weather Timeline:
- Today: Cloudy with rain likely 1″ is also likely with local amounts up to 2 inches possible. Temperatures will be dropping to 65°.
- Tonight: Cloudy with drizzle or rain likely. Low: 59°
- Saturday: Cloudy and cool with some drizzle or very light rain. High: 63°
This forecast looks rather similar to the cycle 1 version of the pattern. Pretty fascinating, right? Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC. Go over to the Weather2020 blog to join in the conversation.
