A Huge Ice Berg Breaks Off Of Antarctica

Good Thursday Afternoon,

As many of you have likely heard, a huge iceberg broke off of the Antarctica ice field yesterday. It made some pretty good news and Bob Henson, The Weather Company posted this blog entry about it yesterday. I have posted it below, here it the link: https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/delaware-sized-iceberg-detaches-larsen-c-shelf

I am heading back from Boston soon. i have been at the IBM facility in Littleton, MA this week learning some new tricks and tips on our computer system we use at KSHB-TV.  Yesterday we all broke out into teams and made weathercasts.  It was fun and then the winners were announced at dinner. We came in second place, and it was a lot of fun to work with my peers.

At dinner we got into a rather incredible discussion about our Cycling Pattern Hypothesis.  It was received quite well. The pattern continues to cycle regularly. While I have been gone it reached only 94 degrees at KCI Airport, whereas St. Louis had two days in a row over 100 degrees.  I had forecasted 92-97-98-99 this week, and it ended up 90-92-93-94.   So, roughly five degrees lower than I though it would be each day.  Next week will likely fall short too.

The latest short range models are showing some thunderstorm activity increasing in the next few hours near Kansas City.  I was blasted by very heavy rain with 2″ of rain in around an hour where I stayed at in Massachusetts.  Let’s see what happens closer to home tonight.

  • Kansas City Rainfall This Month:  0.27″
  • Kansas City Average Rainfall For July:  4.54″

Here is most of what Bob Henson posted on the link above:

Have a great Thursday evening.  Thank you for participating and sharing in this weather experience.  The conversation yesterday was a great one, I thought.
