The remnants of Wednesday evening’s showers and thundershowers should be moving out or have moved out by mid-morning. That being said, look for mostly cloudy skies with some breaks in the cloud cover during the day.
Another chance for showers and thundershowers for tonight, but I don’t think we’ll see the scope of the storms that traveled through the region on Wednesday. However, the Storm Prediction Center has an area of Marginal Risk that stretches thorough eastern Kansas into west central and north central Missouri. This does include portions of the 921 listening area.
My thoughts on Thursday are this. Any remaining storms will continue to move off to the east, and chances of redevelopment will hold off until the afternoon hours. Any storm formation this afternoon and evening will not be as severe, but I won’t rule out the possibility of an isolated thundershower.
What we need to be aware of is this. There is a possibility of an isolated storm, but most of the risk will be from wind gusts and the potential for isolated heavy rain which could warrant the issuance of a flash flood watch or flash flood warnings if needed.
Temperatures today will be in the mid 80s, but if we get enough breaks in the cloud cover, temperatures in the upper 80s could be possible. Normal highs for today are in the upper 80s. We’ll see continued rain chances overnight and the lows across the region will be in the the upper 60s.
After today, rain chances will continue through the weekend. Mostly 30-percent chances, but the chance is there. Temperatures will remain near normal for the extended period.
Here’s your Quickcast:
Today: Showers moving out early, mostly cloudy skies highs in the mid 80s. 40 percent chance of showers and thundershowers.
Tonight: Rain chances continue, lows in the upper 60s.
Friday: Partly cloudy skies, highs in the low 80s. 30 percent chance of showers and thundershowers.
Friday night: Rain chances continue, lows in the upper 60s.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy skies, highs in the mid 80s. 40 percent chance of showers and thundershowers.
