Suchan Says: 2:30pm Update on Storms

Storms with torrential rainfall, frequent lightning and hail are moving closer to downtown Kansas City as they cut a path across the metro.  Thus far, nickel size hail is the largest hail I’ve seen.  As they continue moving southeast around 20mph, there’s an isolated severe risk for large hail around an inch or so in diameter.  Of more concern will be driving conditions with ponding of roadways from downpours and perhaps even a quick flash flood warning or two given how much rain we’ve seen in recent weeks.

We’ll continue with scattered showers and a few storms this evening but the overall coverage may tend to slowly decrease deeper into the evening with warm, muggy conditions trying to build back in.
