Good morning bloggers,

The day started with a few thunderstorms clipping the east side of Kansas City, hitting Grain Valley and Blue Springs with a strengthening thunderstorm around 7:30 AM this morning. And, then it tracked through Clinton and produced an outflow boundary. The outflow boundary was caused by the rain cooled air that spread out from the thunderstorm. Take a look:


There was one strong thunderstorm near Clinton, MO at 9:11 AM this morning as shown above. I drew in the outflow boundary that can be easily seen by looking at the curved light green radar echoes caused by the rain cooled air. This will now leave us with a dry weekend with some spectacular weather.


Sunny & Rainbow posed for this picture early this morning near the Liberty Memorial. The thunderstorms were intensifying at this moment after the risk passed by downtown with just a few sprinkles.

Kansas City Weather Time-Line:

  • Today: A spectacular Saturday with light north winds. There will be some clouds moving in around the noon hour, but with no chance of rain. High: 84°
  • Sunday: It will start out nice with lower humidity. Expect sunshine with almost no wind at all on Sunday. Low: 60° High: 83°

Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the Action Weather Blog! Have a great weekend!
