Forecasting 101

Taken in Wichita, looking southwest, at 1:15pm

This type of billowing cloud, when it occurs in the afternoon or evening, is usually precursor of thunderstorms later in the day. The thunderstorms do not always occur at the same site billows. They usually occur within about 50 miles.

The radar (2:35pm CDT) is currently blank. I’ve drawn a 50 mi. radius circle. So, let’s check back and see if this forecast is validated.
