While a few sprinkles are possible Sunday, Monday will be the day to watch when it comes to rain potential. And even though we need it, we’re not expecting a whole lot.
A few showers are possible during the morning, mainly light and spotty in nature if we see anything. Once we enter the afternoon, a cold front should start to spark some showers and thunderstorms west of our viewing area (just outside of NEKS and NWMO). As the front moves south and east, it should reach the Metro around rush hour, or between 4pm and 7pm. Some storms could be strong to severe and bring damaging winds and hail. Pea size hail is almost expected but stronger storms could drop nickel to quarter size hail.
After 7pm, stormy activity will start to exit the Metro and move through SE portions of our viewing area. The front will be moving quickly and should be out of the viewing area before midnight. The tornado threat is very low and storms have a better shot at becoming strong/severe to the south and east of Kansas City.
After seeing the effects of the cold front, we’ll feel it by the time we wake up Tuesday morning. Tuesday starts in the 30s and highs will be cooler in the upper 50s/low 60s.
