Your holiday weekend plans may be dampened by the chance for storms. I know it's probably not what wheat farmers want to hear. And it's not good news for those who wanted extra time on the lake, however, we do expect the wet pattern to shift before we get to the 4th of July holiday.
The two models we compare most frequently here on the blog is the GFS and the European model. Both models can be pretty good, and sometimes one does better than the other. But the point here is that we have to watch for some very heavy rains between now and the 4th of July holiday. Where the heaviest rain sets up just depends on where the front winds up.
We passed the summer solstice more than a week ago, but going into early July, we still get more than 14 and a half hours of daylight. By the end of the month, the sun will be going down around 8:30 and we will have just over 14 hours of daylight.
July (on average) is Goodland's wettest month with nearly 3.50 inches of moisture. Wichita averages over 3 inches, but July isn't our wettest month.
