Even though Monday will be a partly cloudy day, temperatures will continue to feel very nice compared to late July standards. Expect more clouds than sunshine at times with highs in the low 80s. Monday will feel similar to this past weekend.

Tuesday starts cool in the 60s with a warmer afternoon in the middle 80s. There’s a slight chance for a pop up shower or thundershower mainly during the afternoon and evening.

A better chance for showers and storms moves in with a cold front Thursday which will also keep temperatures cooler than normal.

Williams’s Wrap: Mild Sunday/Monday
July 30, 2017

If you enjoyed Saturday’s weather then you’ll love Sunday’s! After a cool start in the 50s and 60s, temperatures are on the way up into the low 80s. Kansas City’s normal high is 89, so we’ll continue to be well below average. A light easterly wind and a mainly clear sky into the evening will cool us quickly through the 70s. A light jacket wouldn’t be a bad idea in the morning but you won’t need it by the afternoon. Similar conditions start the work week with a mostly to partly sunny sky and highs in the low 80s Monday.

Williams’s Wrap: A Beautiful Weekend!
July 29, 2017

Your Saturday starts with a chill in the air. Morning temperatures in the 60s will be worthy of a light jacket for a couple more hours before turning mild by the late morning. The afternoon will be very nice with highs in the low 80s and a mostly to partly sunny sky.

Winds out of the east and northeast will continue to pump cooler air into the area through the rest of the weekend. Sunday starts with some very cool and crisp air in the 50s and 60s. You’ll want to bring the jacket back out if you plan on going to an early morning church service, but you won’t need it when service ends as temperatures warm into the low 80s under mostly sunny skies.

Williams’s Wrap: Heat & Storms
July 25, 2017

warm

Mother Nature turns the thermostat back up as Tuesday will be hotter and more humid. After a mild start to the day with temperatures around 70, highs reach the low 90s under a mostly sunny sky. Heat index values will be between 98 and 103, so it will feel hotter than actual temperatures with humidity factored in. More heat Wednesday with highs in the middle 90s and then another batch of relief that will last a lot longer.

A chance for storms across northern MO during the afternoon will begin to shift into the KC Metro during the late day and evening and especially by the overnight. Damaging winds and some hail are possible with any stronger storms. Highs fall into the middle 80s Thursday and through the rest of the week.

Williams’s Wrap: Quick Cool Down
July 24, 2017

Northerly winds will make Monday feel much more comfortable with less humidity and relatively cooler temperatures. After a cool start in the 60s and 70s, highs work their way into the upper 80s. Some spots will be a couple of degrees warmer or cooler.

Some of us woke up to a cloudy sky but they’ll turn sunny through the morning. Nice conditions won’t stick around long as a warm front starts to make a push into the area Tuesday. Skies remain sunny but highs will be hotter while reaching the low 90s. Kansas City will get closer to the middle 90s on Wednesday. But a chance of rain and storms during the middle of the week will quickly bring temperatures back down into the 80s by Thursday.

Williams’s Wrap: Hot, Humid Sunday
July 23, 2017

download (6).jpg

Sunday won’t be as hot or humid but clearing skies and highs in the low/mid 90s will cause a nuisance for those still without power and clean up efforts. Skies stay clear into Monday which will also be a more comfortable day as humidity and temperatures continue to lower. Highs reach the upper 80s around KC but could sneak into the low 90s in a few spots across the area. Temperatures heat back up into the middle 90s by Wednesday as rain chances make a return.

Suchan Says: Severe T-Storm Watch
July 22, 2017

watch

 

After an intensely hot and humid day, a cold front is slowly pushing into the area.  This will likely produce scattered storms to finish the day.  A Severe T-Storm Watch was issued to cover the risk of downburst winds in any “pulse” severe storm.  What I mean by pulse, the nature of the storms in a very unstable atmosphere but with very little wind shear does not yield our typical spring severe storms that can become supercells.  Instead, a hot summer day storm can briefly intensify to produce strong winds or hail before quickly collapsing and weakening.

The severe risk quickly diminishes by or after midnight.

Sunday will be a cooler day technically but still in the lower to even mid 90s.  Monday is a day or relief with 80s and lower 90s but also lower humidity levels before turning Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

Williams’s Wrap: Relief Is Coming!
July 22, 2017

Capture

We just have to endure one more day of excessive heat before a well deserved break moves in. However, Saturday is going to be the hottest day of the week with an expected high of 101 in Kansas City. It’ll feel more like 110-115 with humidity factored in. Relief first arrives later this evening in the form of a chance of a few showers and storms.

Some rumbles of thunder and rain will move in and out while we sleep with a few lingering showers early Sunday morning. It’ll still feel like July to end the weekend with highs in the low 90s, but it won’t feel bad compared to the very hot road we’ve been on.

Williams’s Wrap: Excessive Heat Warning Goes Into Effect
July 19, 2017

While morning showers and thunder stay mainly north of Kansas City, there’s still a chance for a t-shower to move into the Metro mainly before 9am.

Skies will clear through the rest of the morning and lead to mostly sunny skies during the afternoon. Temperatures heat up into the middle 90s quickly but it will feel more like 100-107 across the area. Our next chance of rain holds off until late Saturday while temperatures near 100 over the next few days.

Williams’s Wrap: Miserable Weather The Rest Of The Week
July 18, 2017

Tuesday brings much of the same conditions we’ve been dealing with. Heat, humidity, and sunny skies. There’s a chance for a few showers or rumbles across our northernmost counties through the morning, otherwise it stays dry for the majority of the area.

Everyone heats up into the low/middle 90s during the afternoon. Another slim chance for rain, mainly north, moves in late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. Our stretch of dangerous heat and humidity starts Wednesday as highs across the area reach the middle 90s.
