Next few rounds of rain chances

Good morning bloggers. It seems like every time we forecast rain 5 or 6 days in advance, as it gets closer, we scare the heaviest south, east, or north of us. I think that's what is going to happen on Thursday with yet another system tracking across the central US. Earlier in the week, it looked like we might get something to produce widespread showers (nothing heavy), and now, it looks like it will slide just far enough south that we won't get much out of the first rain chance in the extended period.

There is a much better chance for there to be rain over the Easter weekend. Timing may not be the best, but we can't be picky when you're dry as a bone. It looks like it could be a statewide rain chance by Sunday, but once again, doesn't look like the amounts will be all that high. Biggest problem here is we are talking about a weak storm system, but maybe it will hang around longer than 12 hours to give us more than just a tenth of an inch. We can hope.

I'm sharing another picture from the lunar eclipse the other night. We have some really good photographers in our viewing area that like to share pictures with us (and it's very nice). This one is from Kelly Seal in Wichita and she calls herself an "amateur", but I think it's about as good as anything I've seen. If you missed it the other night, the next one is October 8, and there are two more after that. The solar eclipse in March of 2015 will not be visible from the United States. It looks like the next solar eclipse (where the moon passes between earth and the sun) visible here in the US will be on August 21, 2017 (so you have some time to prepare)
