Yep, think I'll spend time with this quality relic of my childhood today...

. cuts into his goodbye cake as we say farewell to a great broadcaster and friend. #ThankYouMark

Our crews are working hard to make some TV behind-the-scenes magic.

Here's working at the magic green wall today...what we see vs what you see at home.

Individual cells are traveling to the SE but the entire line is slowly sinking South.

A risk for severe storms this afternoon into tonight. Be weather ready & stay w/ . #Kcwx #mowx #kswx

Hey, if I have to work this holiday weekend I need to make the most of it! Glad we have a grill here. #TodaysMyFri

The SPC has brought the Moderate Risk area farther South, into our viewing area, for Sunday. Stay alert.

Today's lunch brought to you by.... ! Some pretty good stuff to choose from. I'm glad we have them!

Short-term HRRR model indicating a storm or two later today. Just one model opinion, not "exact truth".

Stepped outside and captured this.

Spent the last two mornings in the dentist office due to minor tooth pain. I'm told a root canal is in my future.

Indications of a tornado via the wind portion of dipolar radar. Again, this is in NE Nebraska.

Clouds look a little dark in spots, but no rain on the radar.

Despite the rain, I grilled today. Seriously pulled the last steak off the grill as the rain started. #GreatTiming

As expected, the "bullseye" area for severe wx has changed since yesterday morning. Neb & Iowa to see big storms.

Leading outflow of those storms is about 30miles NW of Wichita; line is moving around 35-40mph. ETA 9:30p for ICT.

This is what I mean by pop-up, hit and miss storms. Few & far between but producing nice rain for those underneath.

Radar showing rain on the SE side of the metro.

Just spent some time putting this together. I know it's a busy graphic, but it gives a lot of rain info.
