Good morning bloggers,
Another fast moving system is approaching KC today, and a weak Nor’easter is developing over, well, the northeast. Nor’easter got it’s name from the northeast winds that form along the coast in the mature strong systems, not the fact that it is in the northeast. This system will produce significant snowfall over inland areas with a cold windy rain on the coast.
Farther west, thunderstorms will be developing as another system moves out over the plains. The surface low, near Guyman, OK is the exact same strength (1004 mb) as the weak Nor’easter.
This picture above was taken last June 23, 2019 by James Savona in KC. We will likely have some lightning and thunder early on Tuesday morning as this system zips by, with 1/2″ to 1″ of rain likely. A few spots may get more than this if you are under one of the heavier thunderstorm bands. And, of course a few spots may get a bit less.
The day begins with fog this morning. Here is Sunny The Weather Dog playing a game with Rainbow:
The fog will lift today:
Have a great day!
