Good morning bloggers,
We just finished our fifth wet month in a row. In Kansas City, the only month that had below average rainfall in this year’s LRC was in November, and that was on the heals of an extremely wet October. Kansas City, and many areas of the plains, had their wettest October -March ever recorded. This years cycling pattern set up as a wet one, and it is not stopping. Take a look at the forecast from one of the models for the next 15 days:
And, it was raining while I was writing this today. This is just a weak disturbance moving by and there is another upper level storm that will likely bring rain on Friday, and a cool Friday at that. It will be in the 50s tomorrow in KC with the nearly 100% chance of rain. And, then this set up begins forming:
Dew point temperatures of 75°+ will be drawn in from the Gulf of Mexico and make it up to the Dallas, TX area early next week. A front will be stalling near northern Kansas into northern Missouri early next week and then slowly drifting south. A very cool May air mass will be expanding over the northern plains into the northern Rocky Mountain states. And why not, we are now in the part of the pattern that produced the coldest weather during the winter, the Polar Vortex part of the LRC. I may share with you the map comparison in the next few days, as it is spot on and right on schedule.
