With a low of 58 at KCI, that makes this morning (at KCI) the coolest since June 12…i.e. coolest morning in a couple months. My co-worker turned her heater on while she drove to work at 5 am. Heater? Ha!
Paola, Garnett, La Cygne, Pleasanton, Ottawa, Iola, Butler, Harrisonville are all situated in the area labeled “Exceptional Drought”. At about 8″ short since June 1, we’d need several rounds of repeated t-storms with heavy rain to just fall back from Exceptional Drought to Severe drought.
The chance for rain tomorrow isn’t looking to good. I waffled between 20-30%, just left it at 30% because of the slight opportunity both early in the morning (4-7am) and again in the evening (6-10pm).
So then we look ahead to next Thursday:
A passing cold front may be able to trigger some measurable rain Thursday…but again, we may max out with this one under 1/2″. And that does it for the week ahead. I’ll have an update after the Olympics today 5/6pm. Have you had enough of the Olympics yet?
From drought, to record rainfall…the subject changes to highest daily rainfall. Do you know the answer to this question?
