... Record daily maximum rainfall set at Salina Kansas on September
a record rainfall of 0.79 inches was set at Salina Kansas for
yesterday... September 30th 2014. This breaks the old record of 0.73
inches set in 1941.
... On this date in weather history...
In 2006... Wichita set its all time record high
temperature for the month of October when the Mercury
soared to 97 degrees. The previous record high
temperature for October in Wichita had been 95 degrees
set on October 8th... 1979. In 2010... Tropical Storm
Nicole finally vacated the mid-Atlantic coast but not
until inundating much of the region with 1 to nearly 2
feet of rain in a 5 day period. Hardest hit were the
coasts of North Carolina and Virginia... where 13 to
nearly 23 inches of rain caused horrific flooding that
claimed 6 lives... 5 in North Carolina and 1 in
Pennsylvania. Flooding was so deep that cars actually
floated atop each other. Wilmington North Carolina
'rained supreme' by measuring a staggering 22.54 inches
from September 26th to the 30th. However... Nicole died a
slow death as she would dump 6 to 10 inches of rain on
New York City and Boston.
In 1752... the second severe hurricane in two weeks
struck the Carolinas. The storm destroyed the Onslow
County courthouse and all the records were destroyed.
Beacon Island completely disappeared. Some people blamed
the disaster on the change from the Julian to gregorian
calendar in early September.

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Wichita Kansas 711 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 ..updated for 12z aviation discussion... Short term...(today through friday) issued at 248 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 Could see some fog develop over central Kansas early this morning where light winds and increasing moisture will be present. We should see a continuation of elevated showers/storms for this morning/afternoon over eastern Kansas...as moisture transport persists over that area. A few strong/marginally severe storms will be possible with this activity given elevated instability/shear combo. Otherwise the focus will shift to this afternoon/evening...as latest satellite water vapor imagery shows a robust upper level wave maturing over The Rockies. This upper wave will move eastward across the Central Plains for tonight into Thursday. Richer Gulf moisture already on the door step across central Oklahoma will continue to stream northward into Kansas today...combined with strong daytime heating will ramp up the instability levels in the warm sector mainly for locations along and south of I-70. Latest model trends are pushing warm front a bit further south compared to 24hrs ago...due to upper level wave diving more south. If enough convergence can materialize along the warm front/dry line boundaries thunderstorms should re-develop later in the afternoon along these boundaries. The storms would quickly become severe with a few supercells possible given very strong shear aloft. Very large hail and damaging winds are likely. In addition...a tornado threat will also be possible given favorable low-level helicity/0-3km cape. The storms should become more numerous across the region tonight as the upper level wave approaches the region. -Jakub A strong cold front will sweep through central Kansas on Thursday with on going showers/storms ahead of the front. The main question will be the timing and amount of clearing that will take place ahead of the cold front over southeast Kansas...thus allowing for additional destabilization. Thunderstorms look to redevelop ahead of the front east of the Kansas Turnpike during the afternoon hours. The convection should become more linear...as deep layer shear takes on a parallel orientation to the advancing cold front. With the main threat as damaging winds with isolated large hail possible. Showers and thunderstorms will vacate southeast Kansas by Thursday evening. Cooler and drier air will overspread the region behind the cold front for Thursday afternoon into Friday. -Ritzman Long term...(saturday through tuesday) issued at 248 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 Confidence remains high that dry weather conditions will prevail across Kansas for this period...as drier air overspreads the region due to upper level northwest flow persisting across the Central Plains. It will be a chilly start to the day on Saturday but a gradual warming trend is expected for Sunday into early next week. Jakub && Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning) issued at 709 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 A small cluster of storms across northern OK...will continue to drift east-NE for the morning hours. Possibly affecting the kcnu taf site for the morning hours. So will go with thunderstorms in the vicinity for kcnu as warm advection and moisture transport continues for the morning hours. The other morning concern will be vlifr ceilings/visibilities for the krsl taf as the stationary warm front has dropped south of this area...with saturation in the cooler air producing this this patchy dense fog. Some concern that this cloud deck will drop southeast and possibly reach the ksln taf as well...but think it will stop progressing east after sunrise...bringing this deck to the halt before reaching ksln before beginning to erode. So will not include in the ksln taf. Think this cloud/fog deck will gradually improve after 14z...as sunshine Burns it off and mixing increases. Focus then turns to the afternoon hours...as a surface low pressure area develops across OK Panhandle...with a dryline expected to bulge east towards the khut/kict taf sites. Current model trends think this boundary will stay west of this area...with storms developing by around 00z/Thu. Once the convection develops...could see severe storms near the khut/kict/ksln/krsl taf sites...so will need a tempo group for gusty winds +tsra with later taf issuances...as storms come into focus. Think most taf sites will see some convection tonight..so will go with thunderstorms in the vicinity for most taf sites. Surface low looks to move east-NE overnight...which will shift winds around to the west and northwest on Thursday am. Ketcham && Preliminary point temps/pops...
