Good Saturday morning Weather2020 bloggers,

A slow moving upper level disturbance is approaching eastern Kansas this morning. Rain with a few embedded thunderstorms has been moving north and northeast.  Here is an unusual site at 5:30 AM:

Rain was spreading in early this morning, and it is drifting north at around 10mph.  The disturbance has shown up as a circulating area of rain southwest of Emporia, and this is helping grow the area of precipitation as it moves into our area.

The rain will likely continue for many hours with some heavier downpours in some spots.  Is this finally breaking the ice?  The latest overnight GFS model has a lot of rain again over the next two weeks. More on this later today.  Stormy & Breezy were watching the sky closely the past few days.  And, rain is finally moving in as the sun is rising this morning.

Have a  great Saturday!

Sorry Gary, I know you do the best you can. Going through a stressful time now….our little 17 mo old grandson is going to be having brain surgery in 2 wks. at Children’s Mercy. He has a cyst in the middle of his brain causing a blockage in the ventricles and CSF building up. and will be having endoscopic surgery on the cyst, then most likely a shunt-for-life will be implanted in his brain to keep the cerebral spinal fluid draining into his abdomen where it will be absorbed by the body. The shunts are a huge problem in anyone… Read more »

I live in Polo and it looks like we might be completely missed by this round of rain. I really hope we get something this weekend. Seems to rain all around us but not here.

Oh noo Gary…..Rain tomorrow ?? Our big 50 + people family reunion outside !!
What happened to “it should be fine” . I don’t understand how you can make 50 day forecasts ….(PGA Masters and Superbowl ) and nail it, but 7-10 days out you can’t.
LRC is ok for very very long range, but not so good for short range.

Hey GARY,

Finally wet this morning. However, the meat of this rain is just to our SE right now. Maybe we’ll fill in more on radar. Hopefully several more disturbances will occur in the next 5 days as the ULL to our SW just spins. Some 1.5 inch amounts so far in parts of town. Let it rain all weekend. Wet late spring and summer look likely. We have just been a bit unlucky so far, we’ll find our grove soon.
