A large complex of thunderstorms was moving the Nebraska/Iowa border into northern Iowa this morning. A little band of thunderstorms was moving into northeastern Kansas on the leading edge of the high heat at 7:30:
The thin line of thunderstorms is associated with the leading edge and the beginning of the heat wave. A Kansas City Heat Wave is defined to be three consecutive days where the high temperature reaches 95° of higher. This is likely going to happen today through Saturday, and possibly Sunday. By Sunday there will be a chance of thunderstorms, and we will have to see where the fronts and outflow boundaries line up. Some models have 2-4 inches of rain near KC and others have 0 to 0.25″ of rain near KC. We will look deeper into this summer cold front and chance of rain in the next few days.
Have a great Wednesday!
