Gary is off until the beginning of August so I will be writing the blog every morning until he gets back. I’ll try to get it done by 8am. As for today there is not a lot going on. Yesterday and last night we got missed by more thunderstorms that formed west of KC and developed into a large thunderstorm complex that brought lots of reports of severe weather to southern Kansas and eastern Oklahoma.
So I guess there is a trade off. If we would have had thunderstorms yesterday we could have had damaging winds and large hail. Instead, , except for the lack of rain, we got the same end result, cooler and less humid air.
The great weather will continue into tomorrow and then Friday a cold front will approach from the northwest. The computer models I looked at suggest another chance for scattered rain and thunderstorms. This is scary to me because, it suggests we could miss out again on much needed rainfall. There is another chance of rain on Monday. The overnight GFS model had a lot of rain here Monday. But, I have seen that model promise a lot of rain earlier this Summer for Kansas City only to come away with nothing. So, I am not confident that data is anywhere close to correct.
Have a great Wednesday. Jeff is in for Gary tonight!
