Rain Gone... But Not for Long!
After some parts of the viewing area had a very wet day yesterday, we are enjoying a little time to dry-out! Here is a round-up of area rainfall:
KCI Airport: 3.26"
St. Joseph: 33"
Knob Noster: .28"
Note that the rainfall recorded at KCI is a new record for daily maximum rainfall on this date! The 3.26" breaks the previous record of 1.25" set in 1993!
We STARTED the month of June on a very wet note... the first thirteen days saw 6.88" of rain! Then we had that dry period from June 13th through the 27th. Just a few days ago, on the 28th, we picked up .08". And then, of course, there is yesterday's rain... ending the month just as we started it... soggy! In fact, this is the third wettest June on record!!!
Now we should see a few days of DRY weather, before the rain returns. Unfortunately, it looks like it is coming ON the 4th of July holiday! And this morning's models continue to paint a pretty WET picture! Gary will have an update tonight at 5, 6 and 10pm!

The total in my rain gauge yesterday 6/30 (I live in Gladstone)was 5 inches.
WOW!! Thanks for your report! :)

Natural fireworks are always the best! :)
They're MY favorite, too! Just a bummer for those that want to see man-made... ;)
