Good Monday evening!  I hope you had a great weekend and the week has started off pretty good.  Most of us have had a very wet and cool start to the week.  Here in the central plains, we should have high temperatures around 80 for the middle of May.  A lot of us didn’t reach 60 degrees this afternoon.  Temperatures will stay cool for the next couple of days before we start to warm back up later this week.  Lets look at this storm system rolling through.  It is still right on track with our pattern as we remain in about a 49 day cycle.

You can see these same waves rolling through back on March 28th which is one cycle ago.

March 28th

Additional thunderstorms will continue through most of the central plains tonight.  Again, we aren’t going to see any severe weather except for out in the panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas.  Lets look at the middle of the evening hours.

10pm tonight

You can see the showers and thunderstorms really filling back in along the KS/OK state line and pushing back into SW MO.  These areas could pick up another 1-1.5″ of rain through though the overnight hours tonight.  Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will last into the morning hours.

Tuesday AM precip

Temperatures will stay cool for the next couple of day.  Look at the cool temperatures pressing south Tuesday.

Our next wave kicks out on Thursday and Friday.  However, this is really weakening and falling apart as it pushes in.

Thursday 500

A few showers with this wave as it passes through, then temperatures will warm up for the weekend.
