The rainfall last night was once again very heavy for some, but little or no rain fell across northern Kansas. Here are the numbers:
Wichita (Mid-Continent): 2.25"
Dodge City: 0.95"
Jabara Airport: 0.82"
Medicine Lodge: 0.64"
Garden City: 0.28"
Great Bend: 0.07"
|Current temperatures at 7 a.m. Tuesday|
Cool and dry air is coming south from the northern Plains. So we are in for some really nice weather for the start of July. In the last several summers, we were starting to burn up by this point in the summer. Nice to have some green vegetation and something other than 100s to be talking about on the blog.
|Forecast track of what will likely become "Arthur"|
Although it has zero chance of impact Kansas weather, what could become the first hurricane of the year is forecast to move up the eastern US later this week. It will likely become "Arthur" later today, but for now, it's just a tropical depression (or area of low pressure). The National Hurricane Center forecast calls for category 1 storm later this week as it grazes some of the major cities on the east coast. Hurricane season started on June 1st and will peak in September. It's not expected to be a very busy season, but all you need is one major hurricane to hit the US and it all of a sudden becomes a bad year.
