Scattered T-Storms through the weekend….Flooding continues in Central KS…
Good afternoon Weather Watchers!

SCATTERED Severe Storms from 4-10pm:
Here is the current Satellite image:
Current Conditions..ITS EXTREMELY HUMID with Dewpoints in the upper 60s to low 70s!! That creates Strong instability.
This time of year we are lacking triggers. They are outflow boundaries ( which act as cool fronts ) they could be little Vorticity Max that move through the mid-levels ( counterclockwise pieces of energy ) and areas of Low pressure.
The atmosphere is very unstable with not much wind in the mid/upper levels to move them along so anything that forms will sit and put LOTS OF RAINFALL down in a short period of time before it falls apart and cause STRONG OUTFLOW WINDS- up to 60-70mph for 5 miles or so from where it collapses.
Central KS experienced a Storm complex form the night of July 3rd with some SIGNIFICANT FLOODING OCCURRING:
FLOOD WARNINGS ( Neon green) CONTINUE ALONG WITH FLOOD WATCHES:
Kansas HIGHWAY 4 outside of Gypsum is impassable with the road COMPROMISED!! 6′ of water in places is causing this….
