This Mornings Radar & The LRC

Good Sunday morning bloggers,

It is a fascinating morning in KC and also where I am in Beverly Hills. I am actually not that far away from where they will have the red carpet for tonights Oscars. I am not invited to the Red Carpet, I don’t think I am that important. I am here for my Stepfathers funeral and hopefully it will dry out. It is pouring down rain here, something Kansas City could use. But, it is likely snowing near Kansas City, so let me know what is happening back home. Well, Los Angeles is my home town, so I am sort of back home, but you know what I mean. Kansas City has been my home for 25 years!

This mornings national radar shows three main areas of somewhat organized precipitation, but no major storm systems.  One of these areas is near KC, and a second one is right over me as you can see below.

It looks like it should be snowing in KC, but of course temperatures are above freezing. This is how our past few winters have gone. Let me know what is happening back home.

This mornings weather is showing the LRC in so many ways. On the big picture, what happened around 59 days ago on the big hemispheric picture is cycling right on schedule. I am analyzing the data now……..I am not going to get to the comparisons at this point, but its really incredible as usual. Have a great day.

Gary

This dry stretch is insane. We have only had 0.12″ of liquid since 1/16. And the heat. And the low dewpoints over the front range of the Rockies recently.

My gosh, the GFS still doesn’t know what to do with the surface feature for Tuesday. The 0Z has a weak surface low tracking north of us, the 6Z has a 999 MB surface low tracking from Emporia to Harrisonville; which of course gives much different QPF amounts. Very interesting….

Thanks for posting this. It makes much more sense than what the man-made climate change people are claiming. They should read this.

Blue Springs has some moderate snow for a short bit this morning…enough to put some minor accum on the deck, which promptly melted. Not much QPF from this, but it was pretty while it lasted!

Well, it looks like I missed out on this morning’s snow. My cat woke me up at 5am wanting to be fed, I glanced out the window I think but didn’t see anything. Then I went back to sleep but just woke up a short while ago, and of course it’s gone by now. 🙁

Good Morning Gary. What? You weren’t invited to the Oscars? No way! DANG, no black bow tie event for you😉 So sorry it is raining there in Los Angeles. Hope all is going well, although funerals are tough times for friends and families. As for KC weather, snowflakes started falling here in PV around 8 am. It was very light and no sticking/accumulation. It stopped about 1/2 hour ago. Just a drab, overcast Sunday morning. A wee bit chilly, but not as cold as yesterday. A good morning to sit back and drink ☕ and watch Sunday Morning. Safe travels… Read more »

Gary: Happy Sunday morning to you sir. Hope all is going okay. It was snowing/flurring here from about 5:30 until around 7. Of course we were so dry at the lower levels it was a tough process to get any of it to actually reach where one could see it, but there was snow. Hey…that is twice I have seen snow falling from the sky in 60 hours-this is messing with the natural order of things!!!!  I am honestly not sure if I am looking at this correctly, but here it goes. I think…I think today’s set up is… Read more »

Side note, GFS and EURO both sorta missed on this. They were mostly dry yesterday, the NAM nailed it though. NAM is the man right now for best accuracy in near term

Snowing now in Shawnee, fairly moderately with nice sized snowflakes. It’s melting on contact, but pretty to see anyway and glad to have anything wet falling.
