Suchan Says: Look at Storm Chances


Tracking storms into the area overnight

Showers and thunderstorms will spread across parts of the area tonight with particular emphasis on the northern half of the viewing region or north of I-70.  Some of these storms could produce brief wind gusts.  In fact, storms dropping southeast out of Iowa and Nebraska have had a history through midnight of producing 45 – 55mph wind gusts.  This will be possible in extreme northern Missouri as they move in.

Elsewhere, storms in northeastern Kansas are producing quite a bit of lightning and could have small hail with brief wind gusts of 35 – 45mph as well.  It’s possible as they continue to move east to northeast, an isolated stronger wind gust could occur.

Overall chances for severe weather tonight will remain more isolated and I wouldn’t rule out a warning or two for a brief 55 – 60mph wind gust before storms completely weaken deeper into tonight.

The next chance for storms will arrive later Wednesday into Wednesday night.  Some of these storms would have the ability to produce brief strong wind gusts and large hail.  Highs Wednesday will reach the upper 80s to lower 90s.


Late Tonight: Showers or thunderstorms in northern half of the area


Afternoon: Hot with a few storms possible especially to the north – northwest


Evening: Scattered storms in the area
