More Cloud Pictures
Many of you sent in beautiful shots of a thunderstorm in the distance yesterday evening. I just wanted to post a few more of them... because they are GREAT!!
From Doug Evans of the Northland. He captured these ominous clouds looking ESE from 152 & Green Hills Road about 8:00 pm.
Brandon Carnal of Blue Springs sent us this one... he took it around 8:40pm.
This cool shot is from Tedi Rowland in Independence.
Renee Windsor took this impressive shot near Liberty around 8:15 pm.
Julie captured this picture just after 8:30 pm... looking to the East.
This one is from Dick and Jan Berry of Shawnee, KS. A beautiful shot of the thunderstorm anvil!
And Susan Y. from Blue Springs sent us this shot!
Cool Cumulonimbus clouds all around... we thank you all for your pictures! This morning in the Metro... we are starting off with clouds around. This is thanks to some on-going showers Southwest of KC. Here is the morning look at ESP:

It looks like the chance of rain will continue to be south of KC this morning. But It is not out of the question to get a shower here in town, either... so it is something to watch! Cloud cover should hold highs down a bit this afternoon... I'm thinking lower 90s. Enjoy it, because it only gets hotter this weekend!

That was without a doubt one of the most spectacular couds I've ever seen last night. We sat outside and watched it grow and grow before our eyes. A reminder of all the reasons I love weather.
I wish I could have seen it first-hand! I was already asleep, as I am working the early shift today. But I looked at Gary's timelapse, and all of our viewer pictures... and it is just amazing!

We're planning a trip to Worlds of Fun, maybe on Wednesday. We don't want rain but there is a 30% of storms in your forecast. I know it is really too early to decide, but what are your thoughts.
There is a cold front heading our way mid-week. The models had been advertising the front to reach us Wednesday, bringing a chance of thunderstorms. It does not look like it will rain all day at this point... so you might be ok. Stay tuned, though, as things could change.

The weather channel for Olathe is saying temps in the low to mid 90's through the same period you have 100's for the official temp at KCI. Is the weather channel correct?
They are never correct, but this time they may be right but for the wrong reasons. The pattern is changing and fast.
