Good Morning Bloggers!
We have a great morning with sunshine and temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Now the strong cold front we have been talking about for several days is dipping south into northern Missouri. Here is a look at the surface map:
Showers and thunderstorms will fire along and ahead of the front as it sinks to the south. We are already seeing showers and thunderstorms in NW MO/NE KS right now. This is a still shot of ESP Live radar as of 8 AM:
We will watch to see if this rain continues as it pushes south towards the Kansas City metro area. It looks like the showers and thunderstorms will be dropping into the KC Metro area by around noon and here is a still shot of our Powercast at about 10 AM and it is mainly along and north of I-70. Rainfall totals from today won’t be much with a half inch being the most in the rain gauge.
Temperatures are tricky today because of the rain chance this afternoon. We will warm up quickly until noon and then we will drop when the rain moves into the area. Here is a look at the hour by hour forecast I put together. If we see the rain then our temperatures will drop to the upper 60s or lower 70s for the early afternoon and then once the rain moves out we will warm up a little bit.
Then welcome Fall! Tomorrow morning you may need a jacket as you head off to work in the morning. Temperatures will start off in the lower 50s and could be we break a record? We will have to wait and see!
Have a great day!
