Suchan Says: Wild Wednesday

It’ll be a day of sunny skies, warm temperatures and a gusty wind this afternoon.   We’ll see wind gusts of 30 – 40mph.   Temperatures will warm into the lower to even mid 80s.

An area of low pressure will move across Nebraska into Iowa by late day.  A cold front will work into the viewing area by mid to late evening.  Ahead of this front, an area of thunderstorms will develop and spread in.   The area with the most favorable severe weather parameters will be northwest Missouri, a little bit of northeast Kansas and especially Nebraska into Iowa.   In this region, all modes of severe weather are possible especially as you travel into Nebraska and Iowa.

Bringing it back into our area, the sun will set and storms spreading southeast will slowly lose their punch as they push across the the area given cooling temperatures deep into the evening.  However, a few storms with hail and brief strong wind gusts cannot be taken off the table.   In addition, frequent lightning and downpours will accompany storms.

Storms move through the KC metro from 10pm to 2am then move out of the region late in the night.  Thursday will usher in cooler temperatures and sunshine for the afternoon.
