Good Wednesday bloggers,
Well it was quite a light show this morning. There was also a rainbow as the thunderstorms were stalled to the west and it was clear on the eastern horizon. So, when the sun was rising it was able to shine on the rain shafts to the west, creating the rainbow. Here are some shots from our One Park Place Condominiums Skyview.
Here is the double rainbow.
The thunderstorms were stuck from Lawrence to Pleasanton as this was the developing zone all night as the warm front stalled for a few hours. This created some very heavy rainfall which caused flooding in Lawrence. Here are the total estimated by ESP. Amounts were 5″ around La Cygne.
Now what is next? The morning thunderstorms are now moving off to the east and will be out of the viewing area by 12-1 PM. The were caused by a warm front and so now here comes some heat. Today will warm to 86, but Thursday will jump to 95.
This cold front will move through Thursday night with little chance of thunderstorms as the air aloft will be warm, in other words, “capped”. Then on Friday, behind the front, there will be an influx of monsoon moisture as a disturbance comes out of the Rockies. This will create lots of clouds and showers behind the front. So, Friday will see highs in the low to mid 70s.
The good news, is that this will all shift south for the weekend and we are looking at some spectacular weather with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Yes, the weather for the Chiefs first game will be about as good as it gets!
Have a great day.
