Good morning bloggers,
Well, I am writing this at 2 PM Geneva, Switzerland time, and we are 7 hours ahead of you. It is a cloudy and wet day here in Geneva after three straight days in the 80s. There were a few thunderstorms yesterday evening and it was fun to watch them form with the local effects. The conference has gone well. I had some interesting conversations today with some of the many weather companies on display at the Meteorological Technology World Expo. The conversation about the LRC ends up in the same space with these looks of wonderment.
Onto our weather:
At 3 AM your time this radar image looked a little like Europe? That’s Spain & Portugal on the lower left, with Great Britain far upper left. Well, I must have Europe on my mind. There had to be a few spots that had 2″ of rain last night. If you were underneath one of those enhanced thunderstorms, then I am certain it rained that much. KCI Airport had a whopping 0.06″.
Summer is now 15 days away. The jet stream continues to weaken and shift north. The same pattern continues to cycle and we are now at the beginning of Cycle 6 of this years LRC. Most of the models have enough flow aloft to increase rain chances in these two weeks before summer gets here with 2″ to 6″ in our area, while a lot more falls over the southeastern USA where it has been a bit drier until recently.
I have to get back into the conference. Have a great day everyone.
