Good morning bloggers,
A cold front is moving across the KC metro area between 7 and 9 AM. The wind is shifting to the northwest. Dewpoints are near 65° and there isn’t a low cloud near the front at the moment. Take a look at the 7 AM Surface map:
The chance of rain is obviously going to come after the front moves through. There is nothing on radar at all as I am writing this blog entry at 7:15 AM. As the front shifts south, the dew points will drop and even if rain showers form the potential for anything really significant is going down with every minute that goes by. The Drought In The Heartland has now reached day 79 with no end in sight. Today is just another way for us to miss a rain opportunity.
Some rain showers are now forming north and west of Kansas City behind the cold front. We will likely see clouds thicken up with some rain in a few hours.
Have a great Thursday morning. Thank you for stopping by and spending a few minutes reading the Action Weather blog.
