Good morning bloggers,

I found my weather calendar from 1993. In today’s blog I will share with you my July and August entries. Before we get to this, take a look at the strong summer high pressure area building over the plains right now, effectively shutting down any chances for rain:

High pressure is strengthening this morning and by Tuesday, as you can see above, it will be expanding out over all of the plains states. Lower dew point temperatures, and thus much lower humidity levels will also spread south and east as the air sinks near the middle of this high, the pressures rise, and some great summer weather spreads over a rather large area.

We had rainfall amounts from as low as 0.25″ in a few spots up to around 8.00″ in others. This was a great weekend for rainfall over most of the corn and soybean fields in our region. It will begin drying out for a few days once again. The seventh LRC Cycle will begin within the next week and we will discuss this soon.

The Summer Of 1993

From the Star Wars Calendar in 1978 through the early 2000s I kept a weather calendar. When the weather was super exciting I would write in-depth entries, and when the weather got boring, sometimes I wouldn’t write any description at all. This is shown when looking at the summer of 1993. As the flooding was becoming historic, and 15-20 inches of rain was falling over KC in July I wrote some interesting explanations of what was going on, and I have the statistics as well. This was my first year in Kansas City:

What do you think? I haven’t even read through my entries yet. Read through them and have a great Monday! Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the weather blog. How much rain did you have this weekend? Have a great start to the week.
