Today’s Weather Time-Line

Good morning bloggers,

The final storm in the latest series of wet storm systems is moving across the southern and central plains this morning. Here is a radar image from 6:45 AM this morning showing the developing storm as it begins to target the areas that are flooded over eastern and southern Missouri. The northern edge is setting up just north of KC:

Kansas City Weather Time-Line:

  • Today: Rain from around 30 miles north of Kansas City as the northern edge and the heaviest rain on the south and southeast sides of the KC metro area. Temperatures staying near 50° all day with light winds increasing from the northeast as the rain tapers off later in the day.
  • Tonight: The rain shifts into eastern and southern Missouri and it will likely dry out around game time for Sporting KC and the Royals. Some lingering light rain is possible with a northeast breeze at 8-18 mph.
  • Thursday: Mostly cloudy with some drizzle or a few light rain showers. High: 65°
  • Friday-Sunday: Drying out and warming up into the 70s

After this storm moves by there will be a great chance to get dry. And, most areas need this drying trend. This will begin tonight and Thursday as this storm intensifies off to the east. This storm will become part of a what may end up being an Omega block as we move into the weekend:


The pattern begins resembling the Greek letter Omega by the weekend. A ridge forms in the plains with a rare May storm in California and a cold storm in the northeast. What happens after this period will be quite interesting. That California storm may still be able to break through the block by mid-next week and we will have to monitor it closely for a late week chance of thunderstorms and possibly a set up for severe weather.


While those two systems fall into place out west and over the northeast, the middle of the nation will have a rather substantial warm up with a chance to dry out for at least a few days.

Have a great Wednesday morning. We will look ahead on Thursday and thank you for sharing in this weather experience.
