We had another round of rain and thunderstorms last night with amounts ranging from .25″ north to around 1.25″ south, give or take .20″. This was along a cold front that is now moving towards I-44.
WEATHER TRACK RADAR 1 AM SUNDAY: You can see the heaviest rain occurred from Downtown KC south and west.
2017 RAINFALL: We have turned a 2″ deficit to a nearly 2″ surplus in just about five weeks. We have more rain chances to monitor this week. So, let’s go through the chances today-Wednesday.
SUNDAY AFTERNOON: It will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds as a weak high pressure builds in from the north. The front that came through last night will stall from Oklahoma to southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. This will be a player in our weather through Wednesday.
SUNDAY NIGHT: A disturbance will track along and north of the stalled front to our south. This will create a new cluster of rain and thunderstorms that will track west to east across eastern Kansas and Missouri, mostly from I-70 south. We do not expect severe weather, but there will be more heavy downpours. This model has the heaviest along I-70, but it could be further south. We will see how this evolves. Most locations will see at least some rain, .05″-.25″. Areas in the heavier downpours could see a new 1″-2″.
MONDAY MORNING: Any rain and thunderstorms from overnight will be moving away and it looks dry for the rush hour, but roads may be damp to wet with temperatures in the 50s.
MONDAY AFTERNOON: It will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be around 70° with a light wind, a nice day. The front is still stalled well to the south.
TUESDAY MORNING: The front begins a northward trek as a warm front. It looks dry Tuesday morning, but as the front heads north there is a chance of some showers and thunderstorms.
TUESDAY AFTERNOON: The front will head north and eventually stall again into Wednesday. This front will be the focus of more rain and thunderstorms. Since the air south of the front will be quite juicy we will have to be on the look out for flash flooding and severe weather. The front has a chance to be closer to I-70 on Tuesday and then lift north into Nebraska and Iowa on Wednesday. The better chance of severe weather along the front will be Wednesday as the flow aloft strengthens.
Have a great week.
