It is an absolute SCORCHER today. Area wide, temperatures are the hottest they’ve been all year. And that’s saying something, because we’ve had some pretty toasty days. Here’s a look at the actual air temperature at 4 PM
Factor in the humidity and it feels well above 100 across the area.
We still could really use some rain across much of the area. Of course, parts of northern Missouri got a healthy dose of rain earlier in the week, but the metro missed out big time. KC is running more than 3″ drier than average for the month. I don’t foresee any widespread heavy rains in the next few days, but we at least have a shot for a few showers and storms.
