Winter Wheat Rain Update

The soaking rains continue to fall over northern Kansas with scattered thunderstorms south into the High Plains of west Texas.  Here are rainfall since 7am. There are spots in northwest Kansas that have already picked up three inches if these rain gauge-adjusted radar estimates are correct.

Very nice rains continue to fall without any large hail or damaging winds at the present time (10:55pm CDT).

Without going into the meteorology behind it, this chart indicates in red the areas where thunderstorms are most likely to hold together during the next 3 to 6 hours.  For example, the thunderstorms in central Kansas are likely to hold together along the I-135 corridor. The thunderstorms near Dalhart, TX are likely to hold together.

There are two more storm systems forecast to move across the winter wheat belt between Friday afternoon and Sunday with additional opportunities for substantial rain. Enjoy, everyone!!
