Warm, breezy, and sunny through much of your Monday. There’s a slight chance for a shower or storm well to the south of Kansas City late in the day and during the evening. The chance of rain in Kansas City will continue to go up after 9pm with a soggy overnight.

Temperatures come crashing down into the 40s Monday night and won’t recover as we stay in the 40s all day Tuesday. Patchy rain turns steady through much of Tuesday but will start to taper as we head into the evening. Temperatures start to rebound Wednesday with highs in the 50s and 60s. And then we’ll see 80s by Friday. Classic Midwest weather with these big temperature swings.

Williams’s Wrap: Drying Out

October 7, 2017 - Leave a Response

The worst has passed when it comes to the rain that came through late last night. There’s still a small chance we could see some showers work their way into the area through the rest of Saturday morning, but we’ll really start to dry out by midday when skies start to clear.

Expect clouds and sun through the first part of the afternoon followed by sunny skies after 3pm. Highs will be cooler in the upper 60s and low 70s. No weather worries on Sunday.

A cooler start in the 50s and then a warmer afternoon in the upper 70s. Skies stay sunny the whole day. Our next rain chance moves in Monday night.

Williams’s Wrap: Friday Rain Update

October 6, 2017 - Leave a Response

Scattered showers stick around through the Friday morning commute before tapering during the afternoon and into the evening. Some showers could be heavy at times and the PM won’t be completely dry. Highs should still be able to reach the middle 70s. Showers and storms pick up again late tonight, mainly after midnight and into Saturday morning. Severe weather isn’t expected but some rumbles of thunder are possible along with some gusty winds.

We’ll dry out through Saturday morning and will still have to battle some clouds during the afternoon, but sunny skies on Sunday will be our reward for getting through a wet stretch. Rain totals will be around 2 inches around the Kansas City area with higher amounts closer to 3 and 4 inches possible to the north and west of the Metro.

Suchan Says: Friday Rain, Some Storms

October 5, 2017 - Leave a Response

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

As we head through tonight, we should see a gradual increase in rain coverage into the morning commute with some thunder possible.   The chance of rain starts the day very high with usual slow downs in the commute from the rain.

By midday, the chance of rain is gradually decreasing but I would expect to see some showers or a couple t-storms still in the area.   There are signs of a “dry slot” in the warm sector ahead of a strong cold front moving into western Kansas pushing into our area.  If this verifies, breaks of sun become possible during the afternoon especially in the southern half of our area.   This would also knock the rain chance down to an isolated 20% chance in the early to mid evening.

Meanwhile, severe weather concerns will be increasing across west-central Kansas late day as the cold front moves east.  Temperatures in the western half of Kansas could push into the mid 80s Friday allowing for increasing instability coupled with strong wind shear as low pressure develops.   Supercells, line segments and possibly upscale growth into a squall line appears possible as all storms migrate east.

Fortunately in our area, the late arrival near or after midnight should help weaken the storms some and the severe weather risk will decrease.  I could still see a few brief strong gusts in our western zones as the line approaches.

Rain overnight Friday into Saturday morning but we will see drying by late morning move in from the west.  Gradual clearing and drying moves east into central Missouri during the afternoon Saturday.

Williams’s Wrap: Rainy, Misty, And Just Plain Damp

October 5, 2017 - Leave a Response

Thursday will be cloudy, damp, and also warmer. A chance for rain will linger through the day with a better chance for a few scattered showers later in the afternoon and evening. Highs reach the middle 70s. A Flood Watch north and west of the Kansas City Metro goes into effect this evening until Saturday morning.

Areas north of the Metro could see several inches of rain by Saturday, areas along and south of I-70 will likely see less than that. Friday brings a couple of rounds of showers and storms before we gradually dry out through Saturday.

Williams’s Wrap: Several Days Of Rain

October 4, 2017 - Leave a Response

The chance for some scattered showers will continue through the day and into the evening. Even if it’s not raining where you are, it will be cloudy with some possible mist or a fine drizzle. A cold front is moving through and will keep temperatures in the 60s all day. Clouds and a few showers will be around Thursday with highs in the low 70s.

Heavier showers, especially north of I-70, move in late Thursday and into Friday. Heavier showers continue Friday and into the night. By the time Saturday arrives, we could see rain totals of 2 to 4″. Keep in mind that some flooding will be possible after today.

Amble’s Ramble

October 3, 2017 - Leave a Response

Rain is on the way beginning this evening. Since the flooding rains of August, showers have been mostly absent over the past several weeks stressing lawns while drying up ponds and streams in our area. That will change starting this evening when scattered showers and a few embedded rumbles of thunder bring the first sips of rain into our area since the last week of September.

RPM 1

This will be enough to begin the process of turning our lawns green again but will have little impact on area creeks and streams. Much of this rain will soak into our dry soils with only a small bit going to runoff. Thursday will offer more rain with the potential for several moderate to heavy raining cells that could send a few streams rising through the day. The rains will be scattered so the heavier rain will certainly be of the hit and miss variety.

RPM 2

Thursday night and Friday will also offer rain chances and by the end of the day Friday we will be wishing for a little sunshine to return.

RPM 3

With 3 days of rain heading our way and a grand total of perhaps a month’s worth of rain falling in any given area you would expect flooding to be a serious concern. While that is possible I’m not expecting the type of flooding we had to endure this past August. Those rains came fast and furious in an environment much more tropical than the one we are in now. If you recall many of those flooding rains lasted only a few hours while this rain event will be spread out over several days with breaks in between the showers. The grand total will be impressive with some areas picking up over 3″ in their rain gauge by Friday afternoon:

Heavy

In fact there are some bulls-eyes that suggest as much as 6″ total. Those areas would certainly experience flooding but not to the extent that we saw it a couple months ago. Again 6″ ( if that actually happens ) will come in a time frame 10 times longer than the August flooding rains. We are on the lookout for possible flooding later this week but until we see signs of that actually taking shape we will keep this much needed rain in perspective.

Williams’s Wrap: Rain Moves In Late Tuesday

Mild and breezy this morning and also dry. We won’t have to worry about any rain until later today. Highs around the upper 70s will be a bit cooler but not quite feeling fall-like. A few showers and storms will start to show up in the area during the afternoon and chances in the Metro will be on the increase, especially by the evening.

No severe weather is expected. Showers and some thunder become a likelihood by late Tuesday night and early Wednesday. On/off rain continues all the way through Friday with cooler temperatures around the low to mid 70s.

Williams’s Wrap: Windy, Warm, and then Wet

October 2, 2017 - Leave a Response

A few showers/storms will be possible in far NW MO through the morning but everyone else will stay dry with partly sunny skies.

Monday will be very warm and windy. Highs in the middle 80s will feel nothing like October and gusts could reach 30 mph. Temperatures slowly cool through the 70s during tonight’s Chiefs game, so most fans should be able to leave that extra layer at home with confidence.

Clouds increase by Tuesday which will lead to a slight chance of rain during the second half of the day. Showers and some thunder become likely by Tuesday night and Wednesday. Rain continues Thursday and Friday with several inches possible by the weekend. Flooding could become an issue.

Williams’s Wrap: Nice, Warm Weekend

September 30, 2017 - Leave a Response

With another cool start in the 50s and 60s, we’ll go from light jackets to short sleeves over the span of a few hours. Some morning sprinkles will be found north of Kansas City but wet weather in the Metro will hold off at least until Sunday.

download (4)

Highs will be warm but comfortable in the mid/upper 70s under partly sunny skies. Tonight, areas north could see a few showers or storms. That chance continues into Sunday with a passing shower or storm possible in the KC Metro.

Sunday will still be a mainly dry day with highs around the upper 70s and a partly cloudy sky. Rain stays away for Chiefs Monday but chances go up again starting Tuesday.
