Rain moving in

Rain is racing east across central Kansas this morning in the form of a band of rain with some thunderstorms. The problem with this is, the rain is moving very fast, and I think it will be hard to squeeze out even 0.10". This doesnt help our dry spell much, which has been going on for around 44 days now with no measurable precipitation.

The sun should come out later today and winds will be between 20 and 40 mph with gusts near 50 in spots. This will let temperatureswarm into the 70's for highs today.

So today is not looking good for measurable rainfall, and now either is Wednesday depending on where you live. The latest data has the storm tracking even further south of us. Take a look at the 6z GFS valid Wednesday:

This looks to be a wet storm for Missouri, and is taking the 1-2 inches likely south of I -70. We still have to watch this closely as it may change.
Storm #3 for Friday is still looking good for a snowstorm in the area, but it is a long ways out and things will change, but hopefully as more snow.
I will have a new blog tonight.
