Fantastic Friday, Father’s Day Thunderstorms

Good Friday bloggers,

The weather today is about as good as it gets for the middle of June in KC.  There will be abundant sunshine, highs in the 70s with a light wind and low humidity.

The weather will change over the weekend.  First, Saturday will become windy, warmer and more humid as south winds gusting to 40 mph transport Gulf of Mexico moisture northward. These winds will be caused by a deepening low pressure over the Plains as a storm system tracks out of the Rockies.


Thunderstorms will explode from northwest Kansas to central Nebraska Saturday afternoon as hot & humid air interacts with the surface boundaries and upper level storm system.


These thunderstorms will mean business with tornadoes, large hail, strong winds and torrential rain.  There is a moderate risk of severe weather in this location.


Our area will be windy, dry, warm and more humid into Saturday night.  The worst of the thunderstorms will track into Iowa.  There will be a southern extension into Kansas that will move across the state Saturday night.  These thunderstorms will not be as ferocious, especially as they move east later in the night, losing the heat of the day.  They should arrive in our area 4-6 AM Sunday and exit 10 AM-noon.  These thunderstorms will bring heavy downpours, some brief strong wind gusts and perhaps some small hail.



After the morning round of thunderstorms, the rest of Father’s day will be dry, very warm and steamy with highs in the 80s.  There is a 20% chance of redevelopment during the afternoon and evening Sunday, but the cold front that moves in with the morning thunderstorms will fall apart.

We will have updates through the weekend.

Happy Father’s day and a have a great weekend.

    Any indication that the bullseye could move southeast into our area Saturday night?? Lots of activities planned.

    I have a lot to do on Sunday myself , mostly outdoors. From the looks of this powercast the main show is to the NW of the metro, with possibly a decaying MCS coming in Sunday morning much like Thursday’s system. From this set up it looks like maybe areas to the South and SE might not get much. Of course this is just a computer model, it could easily be a further south, and or stronger as it comes in and if it is one of those SE diving MCS’s it could easily make down further south before finally weakening. NWS still has good chance for my area on Sunday, so we will see what happens.

    NWS also talking about a major pattern shift towards end of next week. High pressure building in and heat/humidity being main story line. I will be wanting one more nice rain before that weather settles in, never know when the next rain will come once true summer pattern kicks in……this wet pattern will not last all summer.

    Just several days ago, Gary said we’re in a real “Wet Pattern” and there was rain chances nearly all next week…what happened to all of that? Are we back to the drought after Sunday?

    Moderate risk on a Saturday afternoon in Nebraska that place will be packed in again with chasers really open country up there with good views hopefully everyone stays safe. .
