Good Wednesday bloggers,
Well it is another day this summer with heavy thunderstorms not in KC, but just 20-100 miles north and northwest. Some days they are south and east. Right now the weather pattern is set up for thunderstorms to form in the western Plains then turn east and northeast into Nebraska, northern Kansas and Iowa to northern Missouri as there was a decent stalled summer cold front to the north. The thunderstorms yesterday forced the front to I-70, but last night the thunderstorms once again formed north as this is where the best upper flow is located. There were a few thunderstorms near the front Tuesday evening.
Now, today the thunderstorms have forced an outflow boundary south of KC, which will keep the front near by. These thunderstorms, while missing KC have at least allowed temperatures to be a few degrees cooler.
So, this afternoon the front/outflow boundary will be set up near I-70. The new NAM has some nice thunderstorm activity this evening in our area, near KC. Is this right? Or, will it be just a few thunderstorms, will they form far to the north? We will be monitoring this at 41 Action News and have updates all day long.
Have a great day.
