Wall cloud and weekend rainfall
Ready for the weekend? It's our first weekend in April and the weather is looking cooler than normal. But it's nothing that's out of the ordinary for us around here. Sometimes the cool, unsettled weather from March carries over into early April, and that's how it's setting up, especially for Sunday. Dry weather is expected Saturday, but showers move into western Kansas Saturday night and spread east for Sunday. Don't expect to see a lot of rain this weekend though. Take a look at this computer model projection for rainfall amounts through 7 p.m. Monday. It shows most of Kansas getting less than .50" and if truth be told, most of us will get less than .25" It's not a strong storm system and not a lot of moisture around for it to work with. Everyone has an equal chance of seeing showers though and we could sure use the moisture.
Big storms rocked the Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area Thursday evening. Tornado warnings were issued for the Denton area and we had a live stream up in the studio from the CBS affiliate in Dallas from their helicopter. Such an impressive wall cloud that eventually did produce a brief tornado. There were other tornadoes reported in Arkansas, Missouri, and Illinois. I'm posting two pictures. One is a clean version and the other has drawings on it to highlight what is going on. It's still hard for me to imagine chasing storms in a helicopter, but they give you some of the best views of storms. Have a great weekend. Look for another blog update Monday.
