Good evening bloggers,
Well, here we are again. And, if you are checking in from other parts of the nation, this is a bit ridiculous what weather enthusiasts near Kansas City are going through. Today, there was an afternoon thunderstorm that formed south of Olathe and then tracked through KCI Airport dropping the temperature to 69 degrees during the thunderstorm. And, then that disturbance formed into a small Meso-Scale Convective Complex over Iowa and northern Missouri. And, now look at this:
Thunderstorms have organized east of Wichita and south of Emporia, KS. This area of thunderstorms is associated with a disturbance rotating around the main upper low. So, who thinks these thunderstorms will make it to KC? I will update the blog later if these hold together as we have outdoor barbecue’s and other events going on this evening.
6:10 PM Update:
A growing area of thunderstorms, and it apparently has organized into an MCS. An MCS is a Meso Scale Convective System. This should give this enough life to make it all the way into the KC metro area just after sunset. This could impact the Celebration at the Station and other activities going on. Just about every other area of thunderstorms and rain has fallen apart before arriving in the KC metro, so let’s see what happens. I will update the blog around 7 PM. Here is that 6:10 PM radar:
7 PM Update:
And, it continues to evolve! Will it get to KC? What an interesting LRC Experience. I will update the blog around 8:30 PM. This is still heading right towards KC at 7 PM.
Here is your 9 PM update:
Yes, it appears that it did it again. Thunderstorms all around the KC metro, but not quite in the middle. Incredible! Lightning, heavy downpours, but not even a drop in spots.
