If you're like me, you are wondering what happened to the month of March. This month was another very dry month. I often wonder how different it will feel and look around here if we ever get back to a steady pattern of rainfall.
Here is the rainfall check for March and for the year.
Wichita: 0.28" / 2.31" below normal / 2.55" below for 2015
Dodge City: 0.29" / 1.24" below normal / 1.20" below for 2015
Goodland: 0.11" / 1.24" below normal / 0.70" below for 2015
Salina: 0.05" / 2.15" below normal / 2.51" below for 2015
This next cold front coming in tomorrow (Wednesday) will bring some severe storms back to Kansas and Nebraska. The storms will probably start in Nebraska and then move southeast into Kansas closer to sunset. Main threat will be some hail and wind.
Why is it so hard for us to get rain in Kansas? Everything has to come together just right (much like a baking recipe can be messed up if you don't follow it correctly)
|Deep storm in the west will produce some snow in Colorado and cooler weather for Kansas|
|Another deep low pressure in the west offers up some hope for wet weather middle of next week|
