Rain Is Heading Into KC & A Look Into Major Hurricane Lane

Good morning bloggers,

Screen Shot 2018-08-23 at 7.04.33 AM

A rather large area of rain was inching eastward towards Kansas City this morning.  The temperature dropped to 59° in Kansas City this morning. This means that some rather dry air is off to the north and east of KC, and this will help slow the northeast penetration of the rain.  It will make it to the state line, however, in the next few hours and temperatures will likely be in the 60s most of today for a rare-cool August day.  The set up for heavier thunderstorms developing tonight is there as well.  Hot air will be surging  in Friday, and ahead of this big warm surge there will be a zone of heavy thunderstorms forming. There is a zone, seen above, where the heavy thunderstorms are this morning. This developing area will shift north and east a bit tonight, and KC may be near this zone.  Keep us updated on your rainfall totals.

Hurricane Lane:

Screen Shot 2018-08-23 at 7.05.20 AM

It is interesting this morning in the analysis of this satellite picture. Major CAT 4 hurricane Lane is still moving west-northwest. And, look just to the east. There is another cluster of thunderstorms organizing a bit this morning as well. This should get wrapped into the system in the next 24 hours.  How will Lane impact Hawaii? We will learn about all of the impacts in the next 24 to 36 hours.  Hopefully Lane will not turn north as some of the models suggest.

Have a great day, and go to the blog at Weather2020.com as we share in this weather experience. Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC.

Walker is over-thinking this. If a bike path/lane is narrow, full of obstructions or simply congested, then people will have to go slowly. If it is wide and not too congested, then different people can go at different speeds. If it is narrow but relatively empty, then high-speed users can go at high speeds; except where they need to slow down when encountering other users. This is how bike lanes and shared-use paths already work. It”s also how roads work. There is no need to make a new kind of “bike lane for every different human-scale vehicle. Anyway, bikes going… Read more »

When is the last time we had a real T-Storm? At least here in LS, there’s been none this year, maybe one last year. I know because my pond goes over the spillway when we get those. It hasn’t flooded out this year, maybe once last year. I’m talkin about those slow moving hawgs that come out of the West-Southwest. We had more than a few approach but of coarse they get sprayed and burned out

Oops…

GFS has Lane turning hard to the NE not NW….the turn is occurring further west which would make the impact worse…..just forget the above post on the GFS and Euro accept that some mets are saying this would show the superiority of the Euro if it winds up correct…..

Gary: Good evening to you sir!! Not sure how much rain I have received at home as I am still at school preparing for curriculum night tonight. I know we had a fantastic rain today….have had close to 3 inches over the past 2.5 weeks….wonderful indeed!!! Summer is roaring back fast…it is currently sunny and 92 in Stillwater, Oklahoma….nothing to stop it from blasting in here in the next 5 hours or so…August in Eastern Kansas..gotta love it!!!! Looking at the current radar it does not appear the rain will get organized in time for this area. Can’t be choosy… Read more »

I’m sorry to hear that global climate isn’t a big concern for some of you. You don’t have to read this or believe it. Do your own research. Just a reminder though of cover-ups. (300 priests in Pittsburgh, PA accused of at least 1,000 abuse cases hidden for 70 years!!! … Hilary Clinton’s emails that have never been properly investigated).

The Gulf of Tonkin, WMD in Iraq, PRISM…It doesn’t matter man. People who don’t want to consider anything outside of their bubble usually won’t. They feel safer that way. That’s not to say everything that pops up as a ‘conspiracy’ is possible but outright ignoring it because you were told it’s not possible and it’s not happening is a sign that there’s either fear or a lack of critical thinking. We are VERY short in the critical thinking arena these days.

Keep on keepin’ on man. Galileo understands the pain.

99 percent of conspiracy theories are bunk…some need to believe they’re true I guess because life just isn’t interesting enough for them as it is I guess. LoL Its hard to keep things secret, almost impossible, when a lot of people are involved. Also, a lot conspiracy theories are clearly nonsense at the outset, like 911 is an inside job, the moon landing was faked, our government secretly controls our weather, there is a sculpted face on mars. Sure, anything is possible, Its possible purple invisible elephants fly around on the dark side of the moon, but its highly highly… Read more »

Geoengineering is still in the planning stage with experiments scheduled to begin this year, and even if it is implemented on a large scale, it will probably not happen during your lifetime, but if it does, here are a few reasons why you might care beyond the priojected cost of $20 billion/year (current $). Once started, there is no turning back because the causes of global warming will still be with us with a greater impact, and if stopped the earth would undergo rapid warming. Oddly enough, many global-warming skeptics are supporters of geoengineering. Why? $$$$$ Here are a few… Read more »

Love the conspiracy theory guys here, most of which say things tongue in cheek. That said, there was an article published in 1996 by the us military called, “a force multiplier, owning the weather by 2025”. Interesting read…

Insect flatulence from the western Pacific impacting our weather? That’s gotta be the funniest weather-related joke I’ve heard in awhile, thanks for the LOL moment LYITC41! Weather question…what is the best (and free) interactive weather-mapping website where I can overlay data such as wind speed/direction, barometric pressure, temperature, cloud cover, radar, etc.? Thanks

Wet and green drought is back…it was on a break for awhile as conditions were really bad May 1st through July 15th. Things are so green again in and around the KC area. What a change from a month ago. I have only used the sprinklers twice this month at the house. Used them 21 days in July, 19 days in June, and 19 days in May. My highest water bill was $413.00. Water is not cheap!!!

Beautiful soaking rain again…3rd time in 10 days

Kind of a weird looking radar. Usually you get thunderstorms followed by stratiform rain but this one is backwards.

Kai
Guest

Radar looks odd. Strong storms (dark reds) are on the west of the area of rain while the greens, oranges and yellows are leading.

Go home rain on radar, you’re drunk.

But if anyone can explain why or what the ingredients are that is making it rain that way, I’d like to know. I honestly don’t know.

DaveC

I feel like we are seeing more frequent rain events. I swear after each rain event we get the “it’ll dry out for the long term” and 2-3, maybe 4 days later we get another good soaking. Odd. I’ll take it no doubt.

You are too funny. While you were on radio 810, at 8 a.m.,
, you were looking at radar while talking to them, saying the rain “is going to be moving in from Manhattan” .
At that time it was already pouring in Olathe. I was watching it while listening to you.
Number one rule is look out the window 😬 Or maybe it was not raining at your house ?

So, define what you mean by some deserved some not.
When does Gary deserve to take heat ?
Like when you raked him over the coals BIG TIME for that Ground Hog day snow ?
You even went to the competitor and complained about that forecast on their blog.
Heard all about it.
I don’t fault Gary for a missed forecast. Never have, never will.
I might ask questions that seem redundant, but I ask them in all sincerity.

LoL Richard….Gary’s got it wrong before and gotten heat, and hes got it wrong before but it was a really tough forecast so it really wasn’t his fault and he didn’t get heat. Not sure why I have to explain something that is self explanatory…one plus one is two also, in case you need that explained. ROFL

Brilliant observation and comment! Glad Gary has you to watch his six. Sarcasm aside, these systems are seriously impactful for all. Slow soaking rains are more beneficial for crops, soil and vegetation.

My guess is it is going to take several of these kinds of rains the last week to get out “officially”. Got love this time of year, rainy low 70’s one day and then the next day 90’s and probably muggy. Come on fall, 4 weeks away!!

All these widespread rain events, and looks like more will come, makes me wonder… is this truly the new pattern very subtly showing itself? I’m not sure we ever had a true widespread rain event in this current LRC. Now 2, maybe 3-4 in the span of a few days? Something is going on, and it’s promising

NoBeachHere
Guest
NoBeachHere

Lary, it’s the same pattern but there are differences that are allowing this to happen. Look back at May, June and July. No cold fronts made it through till around July21st, possibly enough cooler air and they actually had a push to make it through. The quasi permanent ridge moved to a different position further vertically and west allowing for a bit more functionality to storms moving across the plains. Same time, weird pushes of moist, warm air contributed and aided the last few series of storm systems. So if I had my own theory, if indeed the oscillation of… Read more »

Another inch of rain here in RP county which makes it 5 inches since last Tuesday. Its been spaced out enough to produce very little runoff but this morning the creeks were bank full as the ground is really wet. Hopefully this keeps on trucking to the East and gives the rest of you some decent rain.

By the way my question still wasn’t answered if Gary thought we could have another heat wave. I never mentioned the “other station”, this time.
