| More Cloud Pictures »
Good evening everyone. We have received many pictures tonight of the huge cumulonimbus cloud that formed just before sunset right over I-70 near Oak Grove. It was as beautiful as any I have ever seen and we are showing it on the newscast tonight at 10 PM. Don't miss it. There are all kinds of things going on with the weather pattern including the potential for thunderstorms in the morning. It will likely be like this morning with scattered thunderstorms and showers. A strange upper low will be near us during the day.
Here is the picture taken by Corey Whitworth this evening around 8:15 PM from near the Clay Co. Courthouse. Awesome!

Wow, I had no idea that view was from around town... all we saw in Grain Valley was some dark clouds and thunder...no rain though. :|
I was telling one of our engineers at work that if you were underneath it you would miss this spectacular view. It was great.

This cloud was spectacular. I've never seen anything like this in New England. I also went to get a picture of it. But by time I got to somewhere where I could get a good photo, some lower-level clouds moved in.
How does it look for storms in the a.m. in the Liberty-Shoal Creek area? Any hope?
Thanks for the great job you do. I recorded your global warming program last night and I can't wait to see it.
There is a chance in the morning, but it is one of those let's see how it looks kind of things. It should rain as a storm is developing near us. And, since we had some this morning I expect a few to be around, but maybe not so organized.

Agreed...what a beauty! Looked like whipped cream, and it just kept building and building right before our eyes. Hopefully, we'll see some good thunderboomers in the AM.
Is it just me, or does it seem like these big cumulonimbus clouds have been forming to the east all summer long? They seem to be in the same general position in the sky (relative to our house) every time.
There have been a few to our east. But, the most picturesque ones will always be to the east as the sun is setting. It just lights them up so beautifully.

Wow! That cloud is out of sight! My wife and I couldn't take our eyes off it when we were going to dinner. (Well, except to drive, of course.) The last time we saw a cloud that awesome we were facing east from the third base line at the K. The sunset brought out the colors and the evening brought out the natural light show. Weather is so freaking cool! Thanks Gary.
Your welcome! It was awesome!
