Huge July Rainfall Differences

Good morning bloggers,

Rainfall has varied greatly and in rather short distances near Kansas City.  The rainfall amounts across the corn belt have also varied greatly. On this rainfall amount total list below you can see that near Kansas City the rainfall amounts have varied from 0.60″ at KCI Airport to 6.52″ in Overland Park, KS. These totals have come in three big rainfall events that have targeted the south side of the KC metro area.  And, look at the amounts in Chicago, St. Louis, Omaha, and Des Moines:

This summers rainfall pattern has been quite fascinating.  The next couple of weeks present more rainfall challenges. Take a look at these next two rainfall forecasts from the latest GFS model, and keep in mind the models have been just horrible at predicting precipitation this entire year:

Now, this may be interesting to some of you. Take a look at the drought monitor:

The drought has been expanding right around KC once again as this summer weather pattern continues to cycle according to our Cycling Pattern Hypothesis.  What is going to happen this week?  There are a lot of unanswered questions and we will address them tonight on 41 Action News and in the blog tomorrow.

I just returned from my trip to Big Bear Lake. And, I did have the opportunity to hand Colin Hay my book. He put it on stage, and then walked off with it saying, “Thank you mate” as he left the stage. It was really an incredible day in my life.

Thank you for sharing in this weather experience. Let us know if you have any questions or comments. We have been having a great conversation over on the Weather2020 comments section if you want to join in.
