Suchan Says: Drier Day Wednesday

Severe

Tuesday rainfall totals around the area. Very welcome rain!

In just a single day, we almost managed to see as much rain as what we’ve seen the entire year “so far” in Kansas City.  The yearly total going into Tuesday was 1.16″ of precipitation and we nearly doubled that total!

Sprinkles and a few light showers will linger into early tonight then completely dissipate.  The only concern I have overnight into the early stages of the Wednesday commute would be the chance to see fog in a areas into daybreak after the rain and light morning winds.

As for the rest of the day Wednesday, there will be a chance of rain in the forecast but confined to our southeastern zones in the afternoon and evening.  Much of the area will not see rain actually unlike what we saw Tuesday.  Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with times of filtered sunshine.

Wednesday Afternoon: Mostly cloudy. Best rain chance to the east-southeast

Wednesday Evening: Fairly cloudy with a chance of showers to the southeast

Thursday and Friday both appear to be significantly drier now with a decent amount of sunshine and warmer temperatures in the mid to upper 60s.  As the large upper low down south weakens and lifts north over our area, scattered showers will push back into the area by Friday night and linger through the weekend.

The weekend is NOT a washout, but there will be a few showers scattered around the area during both weekend days.
