Suchan Says: Heat and Storms

The bulk of our Friday will look a lot like yesterday with sunny skies and hot temperatures into the low 90s.  Storms enter the forecast by the second half of the evening forecast into the first half of the overnight.

I expect to see storm initiate in Nebraska, northwest Missouri and Iowa then move southeast given steering currents in place.  It’s likely an organized bowing cluster or line of storms will emerge capable of damaging wind gusts along with some large hail.   The Storm Prediction Center has put the KC metro and areas to the north under an “enhanced risk” of severe storms with a slight risk to the south.



Saturday will again bring some sunshine to the area along with even hotter temperatures into the mid 90s.  It will feel like it’s 102 – 108 when you factor in the humidity and a Heat Advisory is in effect because of this from noon to 7pm.

Storms Saturday should develop sooner in the day.  Essentially looking at 4pm – midnight as the window for possible storms.  There will be yet another severe storm risk too with damaging winds and large hail the primary hazards.

Father’s Day Sunday looks amazing!
