At Least It Is Raining, But, It Did Happen Again

Good morning bloggers,

A weakening area of rain with a few embedded thunderstorms was spinning across eastern Kansas early on this Monday morning.   Take a look:

This rather large complex of rain and thunderstorms was weakening as it moved into KC.  It does appear it will hold together long enough to provide a nice drink of water for some of our lawns.  There may even be around 1/2″ to 1″ of rain in spots, so let me know how much you receive.  But, as I titled this blog, it happened again. “It” has happened almost every time there has been a chance of rain or snow since the end of October. I am not sure if there are any exceptions.  In my spring forecast I predicted 10″ of rain during May and June, and so fare we have had 5.47″ in May and 2.54″ in June, before todays rainfall.  This is why everything is still green, as we have had just barely enough.  There is another chance later today, but it appears that chance is going to shift way down to southwestern Missouri, and that is where I am heading today with Sunny The Weather Dog. I will be at Table Rock Lake later this afternoon, so the weather for that area appears to be much more exciting than for us farther north, and this has been going on all year long.


This map above shows the surface set up valid at 7 PM this evening. There will be a weak surface low tracking across eastern Nebraska by this evening, and as you can see, somehow, someway, KC is once again not in the right spot to have the redevelopment of thunderstorms. Hopefully we get a good soaking this morning, and then there is another chance Tuesday night, but even that chance is trying to shift away from KC, because look at what happens by Wednesday and Thursday:



Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC. Go to the Weather2020 blog to share in this weather experience. Have a great day. Sunny and I leave later this morning for the lake. I am looking forward to getting away for  few days, and maybe actually experiencing a real thunderstorm for a change. It certainly looks like I may get one down there.
