| Soooo Spotty »
After yesterday's torrential downpours across parts of the Metro... we started today with patchy fog, as expected! But that fog is quickly lifting, and we can expect a mix of sun and clouds as we go through the day. As Jeff blogged about yesterday, we also have the potential for thunderstorms, once again! Here is a look at the upper level disturbance that will be swinging through today:

There is the potential for some stronger thunderstorms this afternoon... damaging winds and hail will be the main threats. You can see the SPC has put us in a slight risk:
Our disturbance should be just off to our East on Monday. Close enough to keep some clouds around through the day. I think it could also set off some spotty t-storms during the afternoon, especially east of KC. So rain chances continue! Here is a look at the upper flow Monday:

Another big thing you will notice with this whole set-up... is the COOLER temperatures!! We have a couple of days with highs in the 70s in the forecast... and lows down into the 50s!

Any idea how much rain fell yesterday in Lenexa, about 79th and Lackman? I'm not in town but I would really like to know how much my yard was watered. Thanks!
I don't know an exact measurement... but based on what I saw, it would be anywhere from a half inch to an inch or so. Maybe some fellow bloggers in that neck of the woods know.... anyone?

I'm at 87th and Lamar and recorded 1.65 inches yesterday. Great day! I'm sensing today just isn't ripe for rain, based on the cool temps and low dewpoints. Am I correct?
As we are at max heating, we are beginning to see spotty t-storms over the viewing area. Nothing for you, though... most of it is south and east. I think the chance for t-storms for you is low as we head into evening.

Out near K7 and SM Pkwy we got just under 1/4". At least it was better than the big one last week when we sat on the deck with not even a drop and watch the lightning and torrential rains in town. The lawn is starting to make overtures to the neighborhood dogs.
Thanks for the rainfall report! Glad you at least got something!

We didn't have any thunderstorms today, just a few sprinkles up here in the Shoal Creek area. Yesterday, however, was very interesting. I was watching a storm pass to our north. It was amazing to see how fast the clouds were changing. I saw a small cloud form, expand, and then dissipate within 30 seconds. There was also a large cloud which appeared to have a small dip under it. A very small section of it appeared to have a very slight rotation to it somewhere around 3 p.m. It was interesting to watch and also great to see that it was to the north of us and moving east.
However, we did have some very heavy downpours here
Thanks for the info. The clouds over the past FEW days have been pretty cool to watch. I captured an amazing timelapse last night of a dissipating thunderstorm moving into downtown KC. Very neat!

Out here in Louisburg we had just under a half inch of rain and a lot of wind. A co-worker that lives in Gardner finally said they got a quarter inch of much needed rain have a good day.
Thanks for the rainfall report! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather!

I was so amazed and surprised saturday. It really can still rain here in Kck. I had .75 Still need a whole lot more. Do you think this dry weather pattern will persist all summer? Or will it maybe break down and give more chances of rain?
The weather pattern we are in will break down over the summer, and it will be more difficult to get good wide-spread rains. We will still have our chances of rain here and there... but then a new weather pattern will set up in the fall. Hopefully it will be one that will bring us more activity! Thanks for your rainfall report!
