Good Morning Bloggers! A beautiful shot from our One Park Place Skyview of the clouds and a peak of the sun.
Rain is currently ongoing as of 7:45 AM in the same spots that saw it yesterday. Gentry, MO down through Cameron moving to the southeast.
The Kansas City metro area will stay dry today with the main forecast point being the heat. High temperatures will once again get up into the lower 90s. The farther southwest you go in the viewing area the closer it will get to the triple digits.
Wednesday is when the chance for rain will begin to increase and the temperatures will begin to decrease.
The front that is currently along the northern edge of the viewing area will drop south tomorrow and this will bring the chance for rain a little further south. The timing is still a little uncertain for Wednesday, but let’s look at the NAM & GFS next to each other for precipitation.
NAM: 00z Thu (WED PM) & 12z Thu (THU AM)
GFS 00Z THU (Wed PM), 06Z THU (Midnight WED), 12z THU (THU AM)
Looking up at the NAM model the showers and thunderstorms will push south toward I-70 as early as the late afternoon and early evening, but the GFS keeps it north along the Iowa border until overnight and into early Thursday. We will keep looking at everything, but forecast is on track to bring us several good chances of rain between Wednesday and the beginning of next week.
