100% Chance Of Rain

/100% Chance Of Rain

100% Chance Of Rain

Good morning bloggers,

Tropical Storm Gordon will weaken to a depression today, and then go through a rather interesting transition by Saturday as the overall LRC flow (500 mb wave train aloft that is cycling according to the LRC) picks up the storm and combines with an upper level trough to create a new surface low by Saturday over Missouri.  This is a rather complex development and how it forms will decide which locations get the most rainfall later this week. Ahead of this development is a band of tropical moisture and a weak cold front moving slowly across the plains states today. Take a look at the radar images from around 7:40 AM this morning:

Kansas City Weather Timeline:

  • Today: Rain likely north and west of a Pleasanton, KS to Lone Jack, MO to Chillicothe, MO line. South and east of this white line shown above will likely get missed by most of todays rain, and this is the target of the main storm developing by Saturday, however.  Temperatures in the 70s.
  • Tonight: Scattered showers with a chance of thunderstorms.  Low:  67°
  • Thursday:  Partly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.
  • Friday-Saturday:  Much cooler with highs in the 60s with rain likely, heaviest south and east of I-35

Here is the rainfall forecast from the latest GFS model run:

The prediction of Gordon to form and track where it did was precisely done by Weather2020 8 months ago by applying the LRC technology.  One point I will make today. Our analytics had an 84% chance of a storm to form and track there by June 1.  The National Hurricane Center had 10% chance five days before. Think about that for a few minutes.  Now, what comes next? There is a 64% chance Florida will get hit by a hurricane later this month. Right now, Florence is likely not the one.  We will monitor closely, as we have had a prediction for one to threaten the southeast coast, including Florida within around two and a half weeks.

We will see how the models trend today on the rain chances for rest of the week. Right now, the bottom of my rain gauge is bone dry. Will it overflow the 1″ tube, or is my pond going to continue to have a beach around it. Have a great day and thank you for reading the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC.  Go to the Weather2020.com blog to join in the conversation.

    Hopefully the farmers get the needed rain over the next few days.

    Luke Bryan hit the nail on the head when he said said: “It clouds up in the city, the weather man complains.”

    Personally I’m ready for some dry cool days. The humidity and wet might be my least favorite weather.

    The NWS is showing 5-7 inches for Chillicothe and 41 had 1.75 as of this morning. Why such a big difference?

    • Gary September 5, 2018 at 8:25 am - Reply

      It will depend on the interaction from the next storm. If you end up in the right location, then 7 inches of rain is a possibility. Where will that target be located. I think I will be able to more accurately identify this by the time I am on tonight.

        Thanks Gary. I hope it’s closer to 2 than 7. The beans have plenty of moisture to finish and we don’t need the rivers and creeks to flood. The crops look great in the river bottoms

    “The prediction of Gordon to form and track where it did was precisely done by Weather2020 8 months ago by applying the LRC technology.”

    Nit-picking: The LRC is not a “technology.” “Technology” is a machine or a piece of software. The LRC is not a machine or a piece of software, it’s a theory on cycling patterns of the atmosphere. Calling the LRC a piece of “technology” would be like calling ENSO a “technology” which clearly it isn’t.

      Technology: the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry

      The LRC is just that, an application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes for so many industries.

      • Snow Miser September 5, 2018 at 8:30 am - Reply

        That’s really stretching the definition IMO. You would be able to call *any* atmospheric pattern a “technology” using that criteria.

        • Snow Miser September 5, 2018 at 8:32 am - Reply

          And BTW, I would not call the LRC “the application” of scientific knowledge. The LRC *is* the scientific knowledge itself. If somebody devised some mechanism to harness the LRC for something, *that* would be an “application.”

          • Real Humedude September 5, 2018 at 9:19 am - Reply

            Gary is harnessing it, for weather prediction. Your into the weeds now SM, LRC by itself is just a pattern but once Gary uses it for forecasting it becomes technology, a tool we are using for a purpose. Without this technology we would have been just as clueless as the NHC was about Gordon, LRC technology provided the insight.

            • Snow Miser September 5, 2018 at 9:28 am - Reply

              “Technology” is something man-made. The LRC is a naturally-occurring phenomenon – an atmospheric cycling pattern. Being a naturally-occurring phenomenon, the LRC isn’t a “technology.” He may be using a technology – computers – to help him do his forecasts and figure out the LRC, but that’s no different than saying meteorologists use computers to help them figure out El Ninos and La Ninas. The El Ninos and La Ninas aren’t “technology,” they are atmospheric cycling patterns, just like the LRC. Once again, saying the LRC is a “technology” is like saying El Nino is a technology, which obviously it isn’t.

              • JoeK September 5, 2018 at 9:40 am

                Snow Miser,

                The LRC is THE TECHNOLOGY that describes the atmospheric patterns/cycles. Technology refers to methods, systems, and devices which are the result of scientific knowledge being used for practical purposes.

              • Snow Miser September 5, 2018 at 9:52 am

                No – once again, “technology” is a man-made thing. The LRC is a naturally-occurring phenomenon. Gary may be *using* technology (computers, etc) to figure out and describe the LRC, but that doesn’t make the LRC a “technology.” The LRC isn’t a “technology,” it’s an atmospheric cycling pattern. Atmospheric cycling patterns aren’t “technologies.”

                Goof fricking grief. Does everything have to turn on a few words or syllables? I get what you are saying, but I don’t think Gary was being disingenuous with it. It’s so ridiculous how everyone has to point out everything……it’s one jacked up world right now. Isn’t electronic media great?

              • JoeK September 5, 2018 at 10:53 am

                Snow Miser,

                The following is a long read. In a sense, what you are saying is right and wrong. There are multiple definitions or perceptions of technology. The LRC Theory IS technology depending on perception and whether or not you are a person that lives only in absolute terms:

                The use of the term “technology” has changed significantly over the last 200 years. Before the 20th century, the term was uncommon in English, and it was used either to refer to the description or study of the useful arts[14] or to allude to technical education, as in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (chartered in 1861).[15]

                The term “technology” rose to prominence in the 20th century in connection with the Second Industrial Revolution. The term’s meanings changed in the early 20th century when American social scientists, beginning with Thorstein Veblen, translated ideas from the German concept of Technik into “technology.” In German and other European languages, a distinction exists between technik and technologie that is absent in English, which usually translates both terms as “technology.” By the 1930s, “technology” referred not only to the study of the industrial arts but to the industrial arts themselves.[16]

                In 1937, the American sociologist Read Bain wrote that “technology includes all tools, machines, utensils, weapons, instruments, housing, clothing, communicating and transporting devices and the skills by which we produce and use them.”[17] Bain’s definition remains common among scholars today, especially social scientists. Scientists and engineers usually prefer to define technology as applied science, rather than as the things that people make and use.[18] More recently, scholars have borrowed from European philosophers of “technique” to extend the meaning of technology to various forms of instrumental reason, as in Foucault’s work on technologies of the self (techniques de soi).

                Dictionaries and scholars have offered a variety of definitions. The Merriam-Webster Learner’s Dictionary offers a definition of the term: “the use of science in industry, engineering, etc., to invent useful things or to solve problems” and “a machine, piece of equipment, method, etc., that is created by technology.”[19] Ursula Franklin, in her 1989 “Real World of Technology” lecture, gave another definition of the concept; it is “practice, the way we do things around here.”[20] The term is often used to imply a specific field of technology, or to refer to high technology or just consumer electronics, rather than technology as a whole.[21] Bernard Stiegler, in Technics and Time, 1, defines technology in two ways: as “the pursuit of life by means other than life,” and as “organized inorganic matter.”[22]

                Technology can be most broadly defined as the entities, both material and immaterial, created by the application of mental and physical effort in order to achieve some value. In this usage, technology refers to tools and machines that may be used to solve real-world problems. It is a far-reaching term that may include simple tools, such as a crowbar or wooden spoon, or more complex machines, such as a space station or particle accelerator. Tools and machines need not be material; virtual technology, such as computer software and business methods, fall under this definition of technology.[23] W. Brian Arthur defines technology in a similarly broad way as “a means to fulfill a human purpose.”[24]

                The word “technology” can also be used to refer to a collection of techniques. In this context, it is the current state of humanity’s knowledge of how to combine resources to produce desired products, to solve problems, fulfill needs, or satisfy wants; it includes technical methods, skills, processes, techniques, tools and raw materials. When combined with another term, such as “medical technology” or “space technology,” it refers to the state of the respective field’s knowledge and tools. “State-of-the-art technology” refers to the high technology available to humanity in any field.

                The invention of integrated circuits and the microprocessor (here, an Intel 4004 chip from 1971) led to the modern computer revolution.
                Technology can be viewed as an activity that forms or changes culture.[25] Additionally, technology is the application of math, science, and the arts for the benefit of life as it is known. A modern example is the rise of communication technology, which has lessened barriers to human interaction and as a result has helped spawn new subcultures; the rise of cyberculture has at its basis the development of the Internet and the computer.[26] Not all technology enhances culture in a creative way; technology can also help facilitate political oppression and war via tools such as guns. As a cultural activity, technology predates both science and engineering, each of which formalize some aspects of technological endeavor.

              LIKE! Anyway, Humedude, it looks like your farm is on the edge, and may be in it today. So, keep us updated on this, and then the main system later in the week may bring some great moisture too. Still, the same pattern, and I like this September version thus far. The new LRC is just five weeks away. I am hoping for a good pattern to evolve, and unfortunately this has not been the case in recent years. Just because we are due, doesn’t mean it will be good.

      Snow Miser,

      Technology refers to methods, systems, and devices which are the result of scientific knowledge being used for practical purposes. This defines the LRC perfectly.

      • LYITC41 September 5, 2018 at 9:56 am - Reply

        Or for evil purposes. Just depends on who’s got their hands on what technology. This theory of course can be used for great good once it’s developed and refined, but that will be some time from now.

      • Snow Miser September 5, 2018 at 9:57 am - Reply

        Let me put it this way: Is the LRC something Gary could patent? Obviously not, you can’t patent a description of of an atmospheric cycling pattern. The LRC is a scientific theory, not a technology. You can’t patent a scientific theory. That would be like Einstein trying to patent the Theory of Relativity, which obviously he couldn’t do. If it’s not something you could potentially patent, then it’s not a “technology.”

            As I said in my first comment on the topic, yes, it’s nit-picking. It’s just a silly use of the term “technology” IMO.

            That said, if we’re going to talk about scientific theories, which is what we spend a lot of time doing here, we might as well practice being as precise as we can – correct? That includes being precise on grammar (and yes, I do frequently point out people’s spelling mistakes). Once you start slacking off on grammar, you get used to being lazy, and before you know it, you’re getting lazy on everything, scientific theories included. Keeping oneself sharp on grammar is a good way of practicing how to stay sharp on *everything*.

                My post below yours was already a response to it. If you aren’t talking about a man-made system or mechanism, you aren’t referring to a “technology.”

                Snow Miser,

                I think you missed my post at 1109. That was the one I was referring to. As you will see, there are multiple meanings behind the term “technology”

            • ClassyCat September 5, 2018 at 1:29 pm - Reply

              I am very good at the grammar aspect. However, I choose not to point out what appears to be bad grammar from others. That’s because I realize that a person may be typing on a phone that likes to change words, or where a mistake wasn’t as visible before a person hit the send button. While I tend to agree with you on grammar being important, I do not find it necessary to point out others mistakes. Perhaps the person didn’t care about a couple of small typos. The nit-picking went from nit-picking to a diatribe, in my opinion. No one is really saying you don’t have an argument. I think there are arguments on both sides as others have pointed out, about the word “technology”. If it’s nit-picking, then why the continued arguments that make it clear it’s not nit-picking to you. It’s obviously very important to you. That in itself is not a problem with anyone, but the need to make others know is a bit over the top….in my opinion. Good discussion though.

              • JoeK September 5, 2018 at 2:22 pm

                ClassyCat,

                Your stance is one of Class, respect and what seems to be a fading quality, most likely caused by a perceived anonymity in the cyber world. Correcting minor mistakes is considered rude. I do agree with Snow regarding making a legitimate attempt to use proper grammar/spelling/punctuation, but stop short of feeling the need to place myself on a pedestal by trying to knock down others over something silly as a speellingg errrror 😀

              • Snow Miser September 5, 2018 at 2:51 pm

                For the record, I don’t *always* correct everybody’s spelling mistakes, after all I do them occasionally myself. Only when people do certain really egregious ones, such as the ubiquitous its/it’s or your/you’re type errors that everybody should know but half the people don’t. It’s lazy not to know basic grammar like that IMO.

                The other kind that I often point out to people online are things like … I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen write “advanced” when they mean “advance.” For people whose native language clearly isn’t English, it’s no big deal (my Japanese ex-boss used to do stuff like that all the time and it never bothered me). But I’ve seen it written many times by people whose native language is clearly English, and frankly it’s beyond me how people cannot know the difference, the meanings of the two words aren’t remotely close.

    Seriously, what ever you want to call Gary’s LRC, it’s only nominally more accurate than what dan Henry, fred broski, etal would say back in the day. There are seasonal predictions that play out most years with the occasional anomaly related to changes in the jet stream, el nino, etc. Still 50/50 chance the forecast plays out as predicted

      You are correct, the system today is related to the system we experienced July 17th and 18th that dropped over 4 inches of rain ( at KCI). This time around, there was more available moisture that has allowed for a more widespread event. Of course, there are so many other dynamics at play, changes in the jetstream AKA seasonal variances, but the systems are related or appear to be from my prospective

I am watching the radar dry up. maybe Saturday? To be honest, I don’t care about what the models predict. We have a precedence set that the rain will not be that good Saturday.

    Still can’t get anything appreciable at the farm in NW Vernon Co. A shower earlier, less than tenth, huge shield of rain to my east is rapidly diminishing. Always going to be a big rain in a few days, just never gets around to doing it. Not convinced in slightest Gordon will give me much rain either, maybe a few more showers. Been waiting since June to get enough rain to get creek running again, still waiting

    The rain finally made it east to Independence, and we have picked up 0.9″ today.

    Can’t remember a day like this recently where it has rained legit all day in the metro. We need a system like this over the winter…

    143rd and Switzer exactly 3 inches. 2.7 today and .3 yesterday. That’s enough here for a while.

    Have gotten 6.32″ of rain since it started raining Sunday evening. The Big Blue is flooding, and the road that passes through our farm is 8′ under water north of here and 4′ under water south of here. Have to drive a mile through our pasture to a township road that takes us over the bluffs to get to towns.
    Hope that was worded properly, and I don’t owe any syntax. (ha)

    Olathe 131st and BlackBob ending the day at 1.42 inches. Grass seed planted Saturday in a very good soil area just germinated ! Hope the moisture train continues here but my farm in Coffey County Kansas received 5 inches and runoff in our main pond overtopped the dam. Guess we need to unclog the spillway pipe, who would have thought that would be an issue a month ago?

    Models seem to be backing off on rain amounts … POOF watch in effect?

    Funny how the very same system that produces prolific rain over MN/NE/IA/C KS washes out when it gets here giving us one day of rain and then zips on by. We can’t even get a tropical system to give us rain.

    Models showed one thing but what happened was the same old, same old. We get barely enough to keep things green. The storms are from a different angle (southwest) but the end result is generally the same – nothing glaringly different yet. Guess the new LRC is still only just slightly influencing the pattern.

    The fact the front did stall out and produce so much rain up north does give hope when we get to the colder months, but just that – hope.

      Don’t know where you were at yesterday but it rained almost all day in most of the metro. I got 1.5″ in s. OP 123rd and Antioch.

        Yesterday was a rain day but the only day that will be rainy. Me and my wife just got back from Iowa on Monday – it rained 4 days straight up there. The system as I said just zipped on by giving us only 1 day of rainfall. Today doesn’t look too promising.

    The storm’s consistent northeasterly stream since Sunday changed to a southwesterly flow in northeast Kansas yesterday afternoon. Was that because of interaction with the counterclockwise movement of the tropical storm?
