High Based Convective Showers Today

Good morning bloggers,

We have a few high based showers moving across early this morning. There is a chance of a few more this afternoon, but most of the day will be dry.

You can see the weak cumulonimbus cloud moving in from the northwest with the high base and the low top. This is likely producing a small rain shower near the surface as it tracks across.

Todays severe weather outlook shows one small slight risk area over New York state south across Pennsylvania.  The rest of the nation is fairly quiet as we move into the end of May.

A weak front will be laying across Kansas and Missouri on Wednesday. We have to monitor this front closely for thunderstorm development tomorrow. I have meetings today and I will check in later and write up a more extensive blog on Wednesday.

Gary

3.85 inches of rain for month of May recorded by the St Joseph recording site, puts St Joseph down for month about 1.2 inches and about an inch for the year. Amazing vast differences in rainfall year to date in just the two states of Missouri and Kansas. We could use more rain up here actually, but doesn’t look plentiful up here through mid June

Kurt,

But, on here you have posted a total of 15 inches of rain from your house which puts you 3 inches above for the spring with 3 weeks to go.

There will be plenty more.

How about the cool nights and warm afternoon’s, been a beautiful spring everywhere. Couldn’t be a better pattern.

Just had nickel sized hail and an intense downpour in Gardner. Looks like there’s some more storms back building to the NW as well. Nice summer like storms. lol

Gary,
Here at my farm in north central kansas I have a month total of 11.05″ of rain. Most of this came in the middle of the month. My big question — will this repeat in the 59-60 day pattern.

Had several light showers along 435 east from k10 to Leawood. It was really interesting since most of the sky was still blue and the sun is shining.

Is that really a Cumulonimbus ?
I though to gain cumulonimbus staus, the cloud HAD to be producing lightning?
so technically this is a cumulus congestus since it is producing rain?

Good morning Gary- what days this week would offer the greatest chances for rain? I know you don’t like to look too far ahead but I was trying to match up my previously recorded precip days from 57-59 days ago looks like on April 1 I recorded 1.70 then on April 4 I recorded 2.40 both days would be roughly 56-59 days ago. After that I don’t have any precip recorded until April 13-17 which would be around June 11-15? Thanks!

We’re under a marginal risk for severe weather? Interesting, must be for small hail.
