Well SOMEONE in our viewing area had some good thunderstorms yesterday! One of our weather checkers emailed us some actual storm damage pictures! Do you believe it? ;)
These come to us from John in Clinton. He reports about .85" in rainfall, and says strong wind gusts in the range of 30-40 MPH came along with the afternoon thunderstorms. Here is a picture of his family's shed that was blown down:
On my way home from work last night, I saw quite a bit of lightning to my southwest... but the heaviest rain just didn't make it to my house. I hope I never have to go through another year like this!
Doesn't that just say it all?

Good afternoon Jamie, what is the chance you guys could show an area map with the breakdown of rain amounts in the metro this year. I know that KCI is the "official", but I'd expect that we are all across the board on rain amounts.

Jamie - the BSHE (Blue Springs Hole Effect) has expanded into KC I am afraid. Here is a drought update from the Climate Center via the NWS site - note that they mention some improvement in drought conditions, although why, I don't know, and will believe it when I see it. I would still be curious why they say "improvement" - what are they going on?
I will post the graphic in tonight's blog entry. The hole is pretty amazing.

When do you think you will have Weather Plus streaming on your website?
It is coming... I have no idea when... but it is coming! I will try to address it later this week...

There was a tornado in Elk County, Kansas. I didnt even hear about it till i went to foxnews.com. They have video footage of it. It is pretty cool.
Yes there were some tornado warnings on the southern end of that line last night. Great video!
