We have finally received a nice rainfall with amounts around 1″ so far. This makes it the wettest day since October 6th and we have not seen 1″ of rain in one day since September 13th, so the streak is over. Now we turn our attention to the severe weather potential this evening. The last several days it looked like the threat was going to be well south across eastern Oklahoma and Arkansas. But, the new data is creeping the warmer air further north towards I-70. so we now have a severe weather threat. We are on the northern edge of the threat and it will depend on how warm we get and how far north a surface low tracks. If the surface low comes close to KC and we see temperatures warm to the mid 60s, we could have a problem. If it stays 50°-60°, that means the surface low is further south and the colder air is hanging on, and any thunderstorms will have much less chance of being severe.
