Great Summer Weather

Good morning,

    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. 

Severe Reports     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. 

    Today and tomorrow should be fantastic weather days for July.  Take a look at the surface map below valid for this afternoon. Blog1

    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!

    Welcome back copy, paste Mowerman! Your 6 month stint in the hokie hopefully taught you a few things. Figured your P.O. wouldn’t allow you on here as part of your probation.

    I’ll take this nice cool air this time of year sure we need the rain but that brings us more humidity last year all hundreds wow what a difference a year makes!! Have fun in Hawaii Gary… keep us up to date on the aloha weather!!

    I know it seems hard to believe but KCI had .49″ of rain in July last year (the drought) and this year KCI has only received .20″. Those two years will start chipping away just a bit at the overall July average year over year. Absolutely brutal. And then to see so much of it fire up right after KC when it was coming right at us and falls apart. Feels like such a kick to the mid section.

    Here at my place in Richmond, I’ve only had 0.2″ since June 16. That’s pretty pathetic. Things are bone dry. Trees are starting to drop their leaves. If we don’t get something soon, we will definitely be in drought.

    Billy Joe (down on the farm) said “It’s so dry down here Bessy’s teats are gittin’ all chafed and swolt up again”. Bessy is his dairy cow . . .
