A Disturbance Heads Southeast Across The Plains

Good morning bloggers,

Yesterday I titled the blog, “Trying to stay positive”.  Today, I am a bit hesitant to get excited about rain chances, but why. Take a look at this enhance satellite picture as of 7 AM:

There were numerous thunderstorms early this morning, and a disturbance was tracking east-southeast across the plains.  This was heading right towards KC, and yet we have seen a few of these before. This area of thunderstorms was a bit stronger than most of the systems this year, and we are monitoring it closely.  The main part of the disturbance was located southwest of Salina, KS, and this is not in a good position for Kansas City to have the best chance of rain or thunderstorm redevelopment later today.

  1. Got two nice periods of rain today. .27 today and .22 after midnight. Wasn’t expecting much, but a half inch is a win for me
