Happy Earth Day & Severe storms


Today is Earth Day... so maybe we should do something environmentally friendly today. It actually started in 1970 and is now celebrated globally every year on April 22nd. The date was picked as a way to reach as many students at college universities as they could to bring attention to air and water pollution. Now, Earth Day involves even more topics being discussed around the globe (such as clean energy)  I think Millie and I will go for a long walk and enjoy the wonderful earth around us (we get the day off, but it doesn't have anything to do with it being Earth Day)
Earth Day weather in Kansas looks pretty nice. Aside from the increasing wind that will take place in western Kansas, most of us will have a beautiful day. We still want rain though, and I'm guessing most of us would trade in this nice day for a widespread rain event, one in which we get 2 or 3 inches of moisture. The severe storm threat is still very much in play for Wednesday evening. It will likely begin after 4 or 5 in western Kansas, and then move east through the evening hours. Biggest threat looks to be some wind and hail, and by the time the storms get to central Kansas, I'd expect mainly wind producers. 

We will also have to keep an eye on the upcoming weekend forecast too. Computer models indicate a potential severe weather event for Saturday and maybe lingering into Sunday. Details to come!
