Suchan Says: Cooler Pattern With Storms

For the first time in quite some time, we will enter a stretch of days where temperatures run a little below normal.  Along with a break from the high heat for much of the month, additional chances for showers and storms will finish off the week and take us into the first half of the big 4th of July weekend.


Complex of storms dropping south to southeast. Oval area in eastern Nebraska to Iowa likely to develop new showers or storms very late and through daybreak that could move into our area

Wednesday is not a washout of a day by any stretch.  In fact, some pockets of sun are possible but I fully expect to see a solid 40% chance of scattered showers or thunderstorms develop through the day.  The lowest rain chance in our area through the day will be in central Missouri at 20%.

Temperatures will range from the lower to mid 80s from north to south.


Wednesday morning: Partly sunny with a few showers or storms possible but mainly to north


Wednesday Early Afternoon: Partly cloudy with a building 40% chance of showers or a thunderstorm


Early Evening: Partly cloudy with continued 40% chance of showers or a thunderstorm

Thursday looks to bring another scattering of showers or storms with mid 80s for a high.  Friday will have a weak area of high pressure way up to the north trying to push south with some drier air.  I believe drier air will make it to near Kansas City but come to a stall.  This will keep moisture across the metro and areas to the south with a continued 30% chance of showers or a thunderstorm

As for the big weekend, Saturday and Sunday look active with pockets of showers and thunderstorms.  Temperatures will range from the 70s to lower 80s.  There will be some potential for locally heavy rain over the weekend depending on how things set up.  Fortunately at this stage of the forecast, drier air is expected to make it into the area Monday for big outdoor plans and firework shows.
