Central States Weather: Heavy Rains- Severe Storms Possible By Week's End

storm system just now entering the Pacific Northwest will affect the Central States in the next few days.

Current weather forecast models show the storm will become a 'cut-off' low over the Central States- producing heavy rains and possible severe thunderstorms.

Viewing the NWS' Hydro Prediction Center's (HPC) graphic- you can see broad areas of 1-inch or greater rainfalls are forecast over the next 5 days across large portions of the Central States.

In addition- the NWS' Storm Prediction Center (SPC) calls for a risk of severe storms from Friday into Saturday from near Metro Kansas City southward.

The scenario could well change until then- so please keep informed as I promise to do so for you.
