Good morning bloggers,
Has this weather worn anyone out? The wet weather pattern continues, and it is about to take a break. Kansas City has not even been a direct target from one of these storm systems. There have been a few spots in Kansas that have had 10 inches of rain in the past couple of weeks. Did you know it has rained 11 of the past 12 days, and it likely is going to rain again today?
Rainfall totals as of 10 PM last night:
Add 0.56″ to these totals from last nights thunderstorms and rain that came through around 10 PM to midnight. So, this is now 5.96″ in the past 12 days at KCI Airport, and 2.97″ so far in May.
Here are the past dozen wet days:
- April 27: Trace
- April 28: 0.27″
- April 29: 0.70″
- April 30: 2.02″
- May 1: 0.09″
- May 2: 0.23″
- May 3: 0.04″
- May 4: DRY
- May 5: Trace
- May 6: 0.79″
- May 7: 0.69″
- May 8: 1.14″
Colder air is now moving in, and as discussed yesterday, it is perfectly on the LRC cycle to be the coldest day of the month. It likely will be as temperatures have dropped into the 40s. A disturbance is moving our way and there may be a few light rain showers today. There is also a chance of light rain on Saturday which could affect the race activities at the Kansas Speedway.
Here Is Another Amazing Statistic Of The Day:
In the first half of May last year, it was in the 80s 12 of the 15 days, with the other three days 78, 78, and 79. Compare that to this year’s first nine days of the month, and what is in the forecast for the next few days, and it is strikingly colder. The warmest temperature has been 78° and it may touch 80° by the 15th of the month. I will work on a graphic to show the side by side comparison!
Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC.
Have a great Thursday!
