Tuesday Cold Front

Good Sunday bloggers,

We have been tracking a disturbance this morning. It it is bringing widespread rain and thunderstorms to northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The KC area will see a few showers and sprinkles until 9-10 AM.


Now, lets talk about the next cold front that arrives Tuesday.

TODAY: There will be lingering areas of clouds this afternoon with highs 90°-95°. It will be a few degrees cooler in northwest Missouri where the rain is more widespread. The wind will be increasing from the south with gusts to 30 mph.


MONDAY: It will be hot and humid with wind gusts from the south to 30-40 mph. This will alleviate the heat feeling, but the cold front to the northwest will really help.


TUESDAY UNTIL 4 PM: It will be very warm and humid with highs 85°-90°. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible. The front is looking slower, so this is good news for a better chance of rain in all locations.


TUESDAY, 4-7 PM: Rain and thunderstorms will be forming along and behind the front. The severe threat is low, but the localized flash flooding threat could be high.


TUESDAY, 7 PM-MIDNIGHT: This looks like the time when we will have the best chance of widespread rain and thunderstorms. The locations of the heaviest rain are not set in stone as it depends where the most thunderstorms form which depends on the location of the front.


WEDNESDAY MORNING: The front will be moving southeast as the rain ends. The wind will shift to the north and highs Wednesday look to be 75°-80°. Right now, it looks like most locations should see .50″ to 2″ of rain with this set up. Hopefully, this holds, because this is how we chip away at the drought. We get an event like this after what occurred last week followed by more thunderstorm chances Thursday-Saturday.


Have a great week.
