Another Great Rain!

Well we’ve chipped away at the 2 month+ dry spell/drought that was plaguing the area with another 1.5-2.5″ of rainfall yesterday afternoon through this AM. There is more on the way, but not to the extent we’ve already seen…odds favor less than an .25″ or so, The ground had really soaked this stuff in again…rainfall gauges on the northside are represented here…

Meanwhile a little farther south…take a look…

and finally even farther southwards…

Doppler estimates are confirming these numbers rather well…

The upper level storm is still in the SW plains states but will eject overnight and move through the region…farther to the NW of here, as I talked about over the weekend, there may be some flakes of snowfall and perhaps even some minor slushy accums up towards the IA border area, if not farther northwards.

Temperatures will basically go nowhere today, again over the weekend I knew this would occur since all the rain that we would see would effectively push the boundary that was to our south even farther southwards. The models yesterday were out of whack in pushing the boundary northwards into the area creating a mild morning. Once we started getting those N/NE winds that were gusting to over 30 MPH in the evening…the die was cast as far as which airmass was going to win out…and for us today it’s the cold air mass! Temps should stay in the 43-48 range for most of the day…and when the rain moves back in it will be raw…

The other side of the storm, yesterday was severe weather. I didn’t really talk about that over the weekend because it wasn’t going to influence us, but there were some well documented tornados in OK yesterday that were pretty well forecast from several days away from the SPC…here are the severe weather reports…

While the reports are only showing one…there were others. I was watching a KWTV video stream showing repeated, somewhat brief touchdowns in the late afternoon due to a long lived supercell. Here are some of the videos…

Even one of the chasers had an issue because of underestimating the strong winds on the edge of one of the tornados…thankfully Andy was OK after his wall over accident...

Today the severe threat is well to the S/SSE of the region…

That’ll do it for today…Have a great Tuesday and stay dry and warm!
