Good Saturday bloggers,

SATURDAY WEATHER BLOG UPDATE:

Rainfall around Blue Springs, MO was in the 6" to 8" range. This extreme rainfall occurred in a 5-10 mile wide band northwest through southeast Jackson county between 430 AM and 930 AM, wow! Locations to the west and east by 10-15 miles did not hardly see a drop.

We now turn our attention to a much more large scale version of wild weather as we track a storm system and unseasonably cold air mass.

The video below has all the details on an upcoming wild weather change for all of us. All the seasons will be in display across the Plains the next 4 days!

Have a great and safe Labor Day weekend. Please don't drink and text and drive. Stay healthy!

A zone of thunderstorms formed between 4 AM and 5 AM from around Fort Leavenworth, KS to Warrensburg, MO.

Here are rainfall totals as estimated by radar as of 7:45 AM Saturday.
