Teachman’s Take: Toasty Start To The Week
April 24, 2017

Highs will easily touch the middle 70s this afternoon with plenty of sunshine.  The winds will also increase and become a gusty problem this afternoon.  While sunshine dominates, the only thing to ruin a perfect day will be the winds gusting to 35 MPH.  With the high temps & winds combined with low amounts of humidity, there is an elevated risk for wildfires.

There is a slight chance for a quick, predawn shower north of downtown Tuesday.  Unsettled skies will stick around from Tuesday night through Wednesday morning with showers & thunderstorms.

Severe potential for Tuesday will be southeast of I-35 after 7 PM.  Kansas City is on the fringe of the Marginal Risk in green.  The yellow is the Slight Risk where the strongest storms will reside (think Joplin/Springfield areas).  An isolated storm could contain larger hail or some brief gusty winds.

We will see an increase of showers & thunderstorms for Wednesday.  The morning commute looks wet and possibly slow.

Wednesday Before Dawn:

Wednesday AM Commute:

Temperatures will dip into the 50s for highs.  Rain chances drop for Thursday as highs remain cool in the 50s.  Rain is likely Friday night through the majority of the weekend.  Saturday looks like a washout with rain wrapping up Sunday morning.  Highs by Friday will rebound into the lower 70s and stay in the 60s next weekend.  Sunshine will be prominent next Monday with highs in the upper 60s.

Take care,
