Good morning bloggers,
Rain and thunderstorms were heading our way as I am posting this early this morning.
Take a look at the radar at 6:30 AM:
We are finally about to experience a wide-spread rain event today. There is an upper level storm and a surface cold front approaching. The rain will continue off and on until this storm passes which will be much later today and this will allow a few spots to receive an inch of rain or more today.
Looking ahead to the weekend storm system, as usual we like to hold off on jumping to so many conclusions until we get within around this range, three days away. The trend on the models fits the LRC well and blows the dry line through Kansas Sunday into western Missouri by Sunday evening. There is a rather significant severe weather risk and the timing of the surface features is critical for our risk in Kansas City. We will look deeper into this after the new data comes in today.
Have a great day, and let’s enjoy this rain event!
