The heat is on! Patchy fog is likely this morning before sunshiny skies take over. It will feel muggy with temperatures this morning starting in the upper 60s. Highs this afternoon will feel like summer in the upper 80s.
Overnight, clear and steamy with lows in the lower 70s. Sunshine sticks around through Saturday. There may be a few days toward the end of the work week where we may see a few more afternoon clouds. Otherwise expect a quiet week with summer-like highs in the lower 90s. Changes arrive by Sunday as a cold front finally pushes south. There is a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms late in the day. Better rain chances are in store for next Monday as cooler air invades for next week. Highs will drop into the upper 70s and lower 80s once the front passes.
We made it to the weekend! Saturday will be pleasantly mild with more sun than clouds and a light northerly breeze. This will keep our temperatures on the cooler side of things with highs only expected in the upper 70s. We might be able to squeeze out some peeks of sunshine later in the afternoon/early evening.
Looking ahead to Sunday and next week
The heat of summer is NOT done with us yet. High temperatures next week are set to return back into the upper 80s to near 90° all week. While rain chances are not 0% through next weekend, widespread, significant rains are definitely not anticipated through next weekend.
Mostly cloudy and breezy this evening. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across NE Kansas and NW Missouri first this evening. That area of rain is expected to track southeast and will be into the metro any time after 7 PM. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s. Showers and thunderstorms will continue through part of the overnight with temperatures falling into the middle 60s.
A few showers are still possible before dawn on Saturday with sunshine eventually returning. Highs this weekend will start comfortable in the lower 80s Saturday and heat up to near 90 Sunday. Sunshine dominates Sunday through all of next week. Highs will be toasty in the lower 90s with overnight lows warm in the upper 60s.
It’s another day you’ll want to grab that umbrella as you head out the door! Showers and a few rumbles of thunder are scattered about the area this morning. Here’s a look at Satellite and Radar showing the push of rain moving into the area this AM.
Scattered rain is expected to linger through the early afternoon with a break in the action mid-afternoon. After several hours of a break, another round of hit-and-miss showers and storms are possible. This becomes especially important with the Chiefs game at Arrowhead tonight! It looks like your early tailgating plans will be fine, but the closer we get to game time, the better the chance for scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder. This rain should be tame enough to keep the game going, but it certainly is possible the game will have wet hours. Again, the rain is expected to be scattered in nature so we’ll keep our fingers crossed we can dodge it out at Arrowhead this evening!
More clouds than sunshine for this evening. An early isolated shower or storm is possible (before 7 PM). Winds will be breezy from the south at 10 to 15 MPH. There will be a brief window where our area will receive a break from any rain. Some sunshine will return and that will bounce our temps back into the middle 70s. After sunset, a few showers will develop across NE Kansas/NW Missouri. Looks like they will stay brief and light. After midnight, another round of spotty showers and thunderstorms will develop, potentially complicating the Friday morning commute. Lows will be in the upper 60s.
For Friday, scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely any time during the day! Heavy rain could accompany any of these storms along with lightning. Small hail cannot be ruled out with a brief wind gust. Highs will be in the lower 80s. There will be a few leftover showers/storms predawn on Saturday. After the sun returns, highs will stay on the comfy side in the lower 80s. Changes by Sunday with the heat building back. Highs from Sunday through next week will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s.
We’re almost to the weekend! It’s a nice, mild start to your Thursday and most locations are dry. Bring the umbrella with you as you head out the door this morning as you might need it through about the lunch hour. We’re tracking the area circled on Satellite and Radar for the potential of showers and a dew storms developing this morning.
As a warm front lifts through the area this morning, a few showers or storms are possible through about the lunch hour. A rainy Thursday is not in the cards, but you will be dodging isolated areas of rain this morning. It will also be a breezy afternoon with winds out of the south gusting as high as 20-24 MPH at times.
A few sprinkles cannot be ruled out this evening along the Missouri/Iowa state line. Otherwise, mainly sunny skies with warm temperatures near 80. Overnight, clouds will crowd. A shower or two is possible mainly Thursday morning. The rest of the day looks quiet and warm in the lower 80s.
For Friday, a storm system will travel just to our north. A couple of rounds of storms are possible. One in the morning – and a second anytime from noon to early evening. Right now, I cannot rule out a marginally severe storm with hail/gusty winds although lightning will be the biggest concern at this point. Highs will remain in the lower 80s.
Heat returns over the weekend with lots of sunshine. Highs are back into the upper 80s and lower 90s from Sunday through Wednesday. We’ll have to watch the remnants of Erika as models want to move it westward – potentially into northern Missouri/Iowa by the end of the work week.
Now this is gorgeous cruisin’ weather! Sunshine sticks around for the rest of this evening with temperatures falling into the 60s after sunset. Overnight, it will be cool again in the 50s!
After you toss aside the jacket in the morning, expect another comfortable day. Sunshine dominates and highs will be in the lower 80s. There’s still a slight chance for a brief shower on Thursday with a greater rain chance going into Friday morning. All threats for rain disappear by the weekend with highs heating up in the upper 80s by Sunday! And more 90s are in store for much of next week.
This evening will be superb! Temperatures will be in the upper 70s until sunset and then we’ll fall into the upper 60s! Skies will remain clear with gentle winds from the north at 4 to 8 MPH. Overnight, clear and cool with temperatures in the middle 50s. It will be good sleeping weather except for ragweed sufferers who will want to keep the windows closed.
Sunshine sticks around on Tuesday with temperatures warming slightly to 81. Winds will remain light from the north at 4 to 8 MPH. A few more clouds are expected on Wednesday with highs in the lower 80s. There is a chance for showers and thunderstorms from midday Thursday into Friday morning. Highs will drop a few degrees into the upper 70s and lower 80s. Sunshine returns for the weekend with highs becoming toasty by early next week when we hit the 90s again!
The forecast over the next several days will certainly have many in a great mood! Sunshine will dominate over the next several days and temperatures will remain comfortable for this time of the year. Sunny skies and highs in the lower 80s are expected through Thursday.
Here’s a look at the Sunday Evening planner.
The next chance of rain doesn’t arrive until LATE Thursday and Friday. Check the 7 day forecast for details on a warm up too.
