Hey bloggers! Here are the rainfall totals as of 4pm:
Roughly a third to two-thirds of an inch of rain across the Metro! The steady rain will taper across the metro between 4:00 and 5:00 from south to north. After that, drizzle or mist may continue. Overnight, there’s is still a chance for that third round of rain before we dry up for at least a couple days.
1. Models are indicating a third round of lighter rain is possible after 10pm.
2. I’m not completely convinced this will happen in KC.
I’m still working on the forecast. Please let me know your rainfall totes!
Tomorrow the nice weather settles in! We should get a lot greener this week!

I love getting blog comments like this:
“Ahh, I missed spring. Waking up to rain showers in a Sunday is as good as it gets.”
Such a dreary day, and people still love it!
A light steady rain had been falling over KC this morning 8-10 am. The 9:30 am ESP:Live image below shows the back edge of the shield of rain pushing into the southwestern KC metro.

With the back edge pushing through the metro 9:45 – 10:15 am, that would pave the way for a late morning break from the rain. One more thing, that little cluster of rain between Fort Scott & Pleasanton, KS will trail through leaving lingering scattered showers in the area-mainly on the Missouri side – through late morning.
Rainfall totals as of 9am ranged between a trace to 0.1″ for the KC Metro…and Emporia had a whopping .22″. But heavier rainfall will be possible this afternoon.
With temperatures in the 50s, thunder is possible with this second batch of rain…but severe weather isn’t expected. It’s most likely that second batch of rain would get here after 2pm and last a few hours before tapering off – possibly before our newly late sunset!
Latests powercast has a range of 1/4″ to 3/4″ of rain…with isolated higher amounts forecast by day’s end.
Although I think slightly more than 1/2″ is possible for the KC Metro, this should be a pretty good and relatively consistent forecast.
I’ll update the blog later this afternoon, so check back in. And have a great Day!
