www= WOW for Wednesday Weather!!
What a georgeous day out there! Low humidity... cooler temperatures... it just feels so refreshing! I actually ran outside today vs. the treadmill... I haven't done that since the beginning of July! (I really am a wimp when it comes to heat & humidity!)
I am sooooo jealous of anyone going to the Royals/Sox game today! It will be a picture-perfect afternoon at the ballpark!
...and everywhere else around the Metro, for that matter! Whatever you plan on doing, it will be nice and comfortable, with highs in the upper 70s. Not bad for late July!
Here are some of the rainfall totals from yesterday, as the cold front came through:
Lee's Summit: .97"
St. Joseph: .38"
Pleasant Hill: .24"
And now those early-morning low temperatures:
Lees Summit: 57
St. Joseph: 54
Pleasant Hill: 57
These readings were pretty close to record-low temperatures! The "official" record low at KCI is 55 degrees... so we were within ONE degree of tying the record.
So what's next? Well, enjoy the cool temperatures today... as we are in for another warm-up. We will be watching a ridge build into the Southwestern US over the next several days. Here is a look at the NAM model for Friday afternoon:

Notice the ridge building in... that means warmer temperatures will also be building back in. In fact, our highs will be about 10 degrees higher than today! You can also see that this ridge puts us in a northwest flow. We do not see any major chances for rain here... but it is something we will have to watch.
Enjoy the pleasant day!

WOW we are having great weather in Clinton!!! Those 100 degree temps was getting to my head LOL :0 70 degree temps is very nice :) Are we expecting any more rain? Are we expecting any more heat waves soon? If so how hot do you think it could get?
It looks like we will be dry for awhile... although we will be in northwest flow aloft... so we will have to watch it! The heat will build back in over the next few days, and we will be back into the lower 90s next week. No MAJOR heat wave is showing up right now... but summer is not over yet!
How much rain did you get down in Clinton yesterday?

about 1/2 an inch and that is all. I was expecting us to get a little more. But ist just goes to show you that weather is never 100 % perdictible all the time. :)
Thanks for the update! I have added you to the totals list in my blog entry!
