Good morning bloggers,

The area of rain was moving east to east-southeast. In the areas where the rain continues, it will likely drop into the 60s and then not get out of the 60s.

Here is the 8:00 a.m. Radar:

An area that has been extremely dry was put under an Areal Flood Advisory as of 8 a.m.. This extends from southern Douglas county into Osage and Franklin counties where the heaviest rain has fallen. Some creeks are rising.

Take a look at the current conditions:

Current Conditions

The heat continues to blast Oklahoma and temperatures may get up to near 110° again today. We are now firmly in the colder air. The northeast winds and rain will produce a large rain-cooled-air-mass. This will drop our temperatures into the 60s over northern Missouri.

Temperatures At 4 PM Today

This model is showing 65° this afternoon near Kansas City. On Saturday, we had our first 100° since July 12, 2018, or over four years without a 100° day. It reached 101° at KCI Airport Saturday. If it is in the 60s this afternoon, that will be a refreshing 35° colder in a few spots.

Have the umbrella handy today. The temperatures the rest of the week will likely stay in the 70s and 80s for a nice break from the heat.

Thank you for sharing in this weather experience and spending a few minutes of your day reading the weather blog. Have a great start to the work week!
