Unseasonably cool week

**Showers and thunderstorms developed lastnight and dumped some heavy rain in some spots in a line southwest to northeast between St. Joseph, MO and Kansas City, MO/KS.** Take a look at the estimated rainfall map below:

Take a look at the current surface map from late this morning:

There is heavy cloud cover this morning which you can see by the red dots on the map above and where I drew in the "oversized" green area, the may be some drizzle and showers this morning and afternoon. Areas along the front and out ahead of the cold front may have some thunderstorms as well. With the cold front pushing through, and cloudy kies all day, it will be hard to predict high temperatures today. But overall highs should top out in the low to mid 70's with mid to upper 80's in southern and souteastern Missouri.

The cold front should completely push through in the next 36 hours and bring in a cool and refreshingly dry airmass. Highs tomorrow will generally be in the mid 70's around the area, but Saturday, Sunday and Monday will likely have highs in the upper 60's to low 70's with night time lows possibly making a dive into the 40's. The 40's may even reach south of I-70. The cooler weather will continue into next week and our next chance of rain will come in sometime Wednesday or Thursday.

I will have a new blog tomorrow.
