Sunday Night Update

Good Sunday evening bloggers,

The thunderstorms area heading this way.  They have formed along a cold front and are now marching through central Kansas.  They are timed to arrive at the state line between 1130 PM and 1230 AM.  There are signs that this could evolve into more of a flash flooding situation over a damaging wind event.


There are not many severe thunderstorm warnings at this time.  We will still have to watch this, but there are signs that the northern end of the line will push across northern Missouri, while the southern end of the line becomes more west to east and track near I-70.  If this happens, some dry areas could see some nice rain.  This is not set in stone, so we will watch it.

Here are the latest watches and warnings.  The yellow boxes are severe thunderstorm warnings.  There have been 50-60 mph wind gusts and some large hail.  A few spots earlier had 60-70 mph winds.


Have a good night.

    c’mon, baby. JOCO needs a lot of rain (no wind, no damage).
    Don’t even think about the Tonganoxie split.
    This front defines a change of seasons.

    Starting to see lightning light up the western sky. Feels a bit tropical out with decent wind.

    Strongest wind ive experienced in a while up here in St. Joe. Large branches down everywhere, would not be surprised if there are several whole trees blown over. Intense for sure. Now bring on the rain!

    Fissure eruption in Iceland once again. Looks neat on their webcams. Lava fountains along the fissure. Best seen in full screen. “http://www.livefromiceland.is/webcams/bardarbunga-2/”

    Hume- Based on the radar it sure looks like your farm got some of the action. Hope you did. It appears this turned into a great rain event for most. Looking forward to the 70’s coming next weekend.

    Forgot to mention. Received an inch and a half from this one. If these last two storms were to cycle around 57 days and we had a blast of cold air with it, could we have snow on the pumpkins? That could be interesting.

    Garden City/Creighton 1.3″ with a few drop still falling. We needed this to finish the crops.
