Good morning bloggers,
There is a lot to go over today and we will begin with our rainfall deficit:
Rainfall is below average for the month, and below average for the year!
At this time of the year you can either catch up on rainfall fast, or you can fall much farther below average rather quickly. There is a good chance of some very heavy thunderstorms later this weekend:
I am going to wait to finish this blog entry until later this morning after the new data comes in….
11 AM Update:
The new data is trickling in and the latest NAM has rain, sleet, and snow in the 36 hours from Sunday into Monday! The GFS has a faster solution with no snow on the back side. This model blows the front through around 4 PM Sunday with heavy thunderstorms and then the cold blast. So, it is three to six hours faster than the NAM model. The hang back wave that produces snow on the NAM model is not as organized on the GFS model. Which one is correct? Probably neither of them, but a combination of the two. Let’s see what the rest of the models show and I will be on at 4, 5, 6, and 10 PM on Friday Night In The Big Town with an in-depth weather forecast.
The 14th Annual Kansas City Pet Telethon is on 38 the Spot Sunday night at 6:30 PM. Will we be in the middle of a line of thunderstorms at 6:30 PM Sunday? We will have around 100 dogs in the studio. Of all days, we don’t need a line of strong to severe thunderstorms at that hour but it seems to be timing out about then. Maybe the cold front will blow through a bit earlier? Anyway, if you can call in and donate it would really help the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City. Stormy and Breezy were both adopted from the Humane Society of Greater KC!
Have a great day, and check back in for updates over the weekend.
