Storm Chances and Complete Forecast
Not a bad weekend. Temperatures on Sunday ranged from 95 at Paola and Nevada to 89 at La Cygne and Clinton. More of that is ahead for your Monday. Temperatures look to be in the upper 80s to low 90s. For Tuesday were seeing more of the same ahead of a trough that will be moving along the U.S. Canadian border.
The humidity is up as there is no elements blocking moisture moving northward from the gulf. This will be enhanced by southerly winds both Monday and Tuesday of 10 to 15 m.p.h. Some location will see gusts up to 25 m.p.h.
For that reason, watch your exposure to the heat as the heat index both Monday and Tuesday will push to 100 degrees. Some areas might see values above 100 degrees.
Associated with the trough is a cold front that is stringing down through the northern and central plains. The front will be moving through the region late on Wednesday into Thursday morning.
We’ll begin to see rain and storm chances late in the day on Monday into Tuesday morning. The SPC has the area under marginal risk for severe storms. Marginal risk means that isolated severe thunderstorms are possible. These storms will have a low tornado risk, winds to 60 m.p.h. and hail up to one inch in diameter.
Locations to the north and west of Kansas City are in an area of slight risk. So if you planning to travel in that direction be advised of the greater risk there.
Rain chances associated with this system begin late on Monday night, most likely after midnight, and run through the end of the week. We’ll see a 30-percent chance on Tuesday and a 40-percent chance of rain the rest of the week.
