The heat in Kansas is a little out of control, especially when you see how our numbers stack up to places that are notoriously hot in July. You know it's hot when your temperature is higher than Las Vegas or Phoenix. We still didn't have any record setting numbers, but let's not try for that benchmark.
Severe storms fired up yesterday in North Dakota with reports of tornadoes. Here's one picture from near Adams, ND (which is about 60 miles northwest of Grand Forks). There was even one report of a multi-vortex tornado, but no reports of major damage. Severe weather chances shift farther north in July as the jet stream winds move back toward the US/Canada border.
Our chances for storms will be increasing for the remainder of the week. Unfortunately, it's not a setup where everyone gets rain, but at least we have the possibilities.
