Due to coverage of the “greatest two minutes in sports” (aka: the Kentucky Derby) our regular 5pm and 6pm newscasts will not happen. However, after the conclusion of the race, we will be on for a brief three to four minute news update. Then, we’ll see you again at 10pm.
Now, while you wait for the ponies to do a little runnin’, here’s what’s going down in the weather department.
We picked up some rain showers in a few areas this morning, mainly North of Interstate 70. As long as we’re not getting severe weather, it’s all fine by me.
Some have already asked about amounts. This is what the official reporting sites are showing.
Your measurement will likely be a bit different.
At this point, there are a few lingering showers East of the Kansas/Missouri line and those will continue to push East. I am not expecting anything new to develop for tonight. So enjoy the evening.
This is going to be a pain in terms of the forecast. Because that front is nearby, we’re going to have to allow for some thunderstorm development. Right now, no one day really looks better than the other. So 30%-40% rain chances will have to do for now. I don’t think it’s a washout but it is that time of year where a heavier thunderstorm could pop up in the heat of the day. At the same time, we could also spark some early morning activity depending on how other dynamics unfold.
We’ll keep looking over the information and fine tune the forecast as we move forward.
In the short term, a warm & windy day ahead for Sunday then a chance for showers and some t-storms Monday, mainly North of I-70.
Let’s hope the Royals cage the Tigers again tonight!
