Good morning bloggers,
I woke up at 4:30 AM this morning and saw this:
Good news for northwestern Missouri: look at the torrential thunderstorms that just tracked across Maryville, MO and surrounding communities. The thunderstorms had dipped all the way down to just north of KC by 4:45 AM, but as has been happening will likely skip, or bypass the city.
6:30 AM Radar:
And, it happened. The thunderstorms intensified after the outflow boundary passed through the KC metro area. Thunderstorms flared up east of Sedalia just two hours later. This is the type of thing that has been happening lately.
Okay, I am going to do it. I am going to post this rainfall prediction from the overnight models:
These two maps above show the ten day rainfall model total from the GFS Legacy and the new operational GFS. There are many more chances of rain showing up. We have had no shortage of chances of thunderstorms, and they have been in our area the entire summer.
There is a weak cold front that will slide slowly through us later this evening, and it may go by quietly with not much if any thunderstorm development. Let’s see how that happens tonight, and then Wednesday evening is our next chance of thunderstorms, according to some of the models.
A Heat Advisory is in effect today! We may have our 5th 95° day of the summer.
Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the weather blog and sharing in this weather experience. Have a great start to the week.
