Good morning bloggers,
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who sent us some nice messages and presents yesterday. It was National Weather Person’s Day:
We received cupcakes, beer, ice cream, cookies, and some nice cards. I said on the air last night to Jack Harry that there should be a National Sportscasters Day! And, he just gave me a strange look.
A storm system is approaching the area and we are going for a 100% chance of rain later tonight with a few heavy thunderstorms possible. The storm that is passing by us is now forecast to become a major northeastern storm system. And, there are two more storm systems that will likely affect us within the next seven days with more rain, and possibly snow next Tuesday. We will look deeper into that part of the LRC later today or tomorrow.
- Now-4 PM: A few clouds increasing with a high of 60°
- 4 PM – Midnight: Becoming mostly cloudy with showers/thunderstorms developing by around or shortly after midnight
- Midnight – 6 AM: Rain likely with a few thunderstorms. Heavy rain is possible with up to an inch in a few local spots. Temperatures drop into the 40s
- 6 AM – Noon: Rain and thunderstorms continue, but they begin shifting to the southeast and the rain will end. The temperature bottoms out near 43°
- Noon – 4 PM: Sunshine returning with temperatujump rising back to 51°
Here is the forecast I showed at 10 PM last night, with the new color and text that I am just testing out:
A weak cold front will be approaching with an upper level storm moving across north of Kansas City. This will lead to a nearly 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms later tonight.
Have a great day. We will go over the details on 41 Action News tonight!
