A nice start to the week

Good morning bloggers,

There were thunderstorms approaching KC before sunrise, and then they fell apart.  These clouds were left behind, and they were close to becoming new thunderstorms. Instead, they were just some pretty clouds that Sunny The Weather Dog posed for in this picture.  These are convective clouds that are called altocumulus clouds.  Since there were little showers being generated by these, I would classify these as “alto cumulonimbus” clouds.  The bases are around 10,000 feet up.


It is a rather quiet and nice start to the week.  There are small chances of rain this week with one of those chances on Tuesday.  There will be some rain heading our way early Tuesday morning.


This map above shows an area of rain and thunderstorms tracking across Oklahoma early Tuesday morning.   This will be weakening and moving northeast, and it may make it all the way to KC before falling apart.  But, like this morning, it may end up being just an area of clouds.

Today’s Severe Weather Risk:


There will be Texas severe weather risks this week. We are expecting more significant risks next week.  For now, it is pretty quiet.
