Good morning bloggers,
Thunderstorms have gradually become more wide spread the last two days and they are increasing this morning. Here is a picture from the American Century Investments Skyview at around 2:45 PM Thursday:
If you were directly under one of these cumulonimbus clouds, then you likely had a downpour yesterday afternoon. We need the rain and lots of it. Today will only be a drop in the bucket. Take a look at this picture from John Cumpton in Urich, MO:
The thunderstorms this morning are forming in an area of unstable air that will be affecting us through this evening. The main disturbance will pass through around 7 or 8 PM and then the chance of rain will shut down and we will heat up. I am not sure when our next good chance of rain will arrive after this evening.
Let us know if you get hit by one of these small thunderstorms. I will update the blog later today if thunderstorms increase this afternoon or evening as the main disturbance goes by.
Have a great FRIDAY! We will go over the details of the likely heat wave that will begin this weekend on 41 Action News.
