What Gary Said Friday

Good Saturday bloggers,

We have gone from the “sublime to the ridiculous” this season when it comes to rain. We had a four day storm system last week and most locations received under 0.50″. We now turn our attention to the next rain chance for Sunday-Monday. You already know how this is going to turn out.

It will be mostly sunny, hazy, very warm and humid today with almost no wind. The haze is the smoke from the western North America wildfires. It will be great for the pool and also for the Sporting KC game tonight. Temperatures this evening will drop from the 80s to 70s.

SUNDAY MORNING: Look at this wall of water from southern Nebraska to Oklahoma. This should be a “no doubt, slam dunk” that we see widespread 1″ to 2″ of rain as it moves across our area.  We will be dry with temperatures warming in to the 80s. The weather looks great for the BIGGSteps run for cancer at the KU Edwards campus.


SUNDAY NOON: We are still most likely dry as we await the rain.


SUNDAY AFTERNOON: Here we go again! The rain moves in, but the significant rain is not solid. I would say it could change, but it never does. Highs will be in the 80s, falling to the 70s in rain areas.


SUNDAY NIGHT-MONDAY: After the main wave of energy exits we will have scattered showers on Monday as the storm system pulls away. It will be cloudy, breezy and cooler with highs in the 70s.


RAINFALL FORECAST: You can’t make this up! Since it has been happening this way all spring and summer, we will go with this forecast. The driest areas are surrounded by 1″-3″ rainfall totals. It could change and something different could happen, but my goodness it never does.  We will know, more than ever, when this pattern changes.


Have a great weekend,

Jeff Penner
