This is the 7-day rainfall forecast for the Weather Prediction Center. The dry pattern continues. Zero percent chance of rain today (Fri.)…maybe 10-15% for Sat. and 15-20% for Sunday. We’ll keep low chances for a shower in the forecast thru Wed…maybe a little better chance of rain by Thu.
Heavy rain and possible flooding for much of the Central and Southern Plains during the next week.
It does warm up…lots of days coming up with highs in the 70s. No frost/freeze next week or the week after as I see it now.
Here’s the severe storm reports from Thu. Outside of one marginal severe hail report in Florida, the severe weather was concentrated in NW KS and W NE. Only one small and insignificant tornado. There were a couple reports of 2″ diameter hail and a 74 mph wind gust at Keystone NE. Check out these strong winds. We’ve had a lower than average tornado count so far this year.
