7-28-21: 9am update…
As forecast, yesterday’s storms were more scattered, but since they were slow movers, some of your backyards saw almost an inch of rain late in the afternoon!
While mid-level dry air is still precariously close to us (yellow) as indicated in the latest water vapor imagery, high pressure will move over Kansas later today, putting us in a more moist flow. A low pressure over south Texas and Mexico will bring some Gulf moisture into the flow as well.
The rest of today…A good chance for scattered afternoon storms with a high near 80. Storms will slowly move NNW, so look to your SSE. Rainfall totals will range from 0-0.50, but could approach or exceed an inch.
Thursday-Saturday: Continued good chances for afternoon thunderstorms. As is the case with convective activity, there will be rain lottery winners and losers. Each day we could see 0-0.50 inches of rain or higher with double that total in the mountains. Lows will remain in the upper 40’s to low 50’s and highs around 80.
For any of you visiting our area, watch out for rapidly changing weather conditions when storms move in! Temps can drop 20 degrees in minutes, winds can gust to 40mph and lightning and small hail is always a possibility.
