Good Sunday bloggers,


The severe threat is over, but showers and a few thunderstorms will linger the next few hours for mostly northern Missouri and northeast Kansas. Highs will still reach 88°-92° with very high humidity.


Fortunately, we avoided the worst of the severe weather Saturday night. There were Tornado Warnings, but no tornadoes.

There was an estimated 60 mph wind gust near Plattsburg, MO.


There was some 1" diameter hail around Smithville, Mo.


Rainfall varied greatly across the area.

Liberty to Plattsburg received 1.25" to 2.50" of rain, much of that occurred in one hour. This caused some minor flash flooding.


Northwest Missouri received .50-1.25" of rain which was needed. There was another track of heavy rain from Beatrice, NE to Emporia, KS. This affected the symphony in the Flint Hills.


The thunderstorm complex that caused the rain from southeast Nebraska to southeast Kansas produced 5" diameter hail in Beatrice, NE. A baseball is about 3" in diameter.


What is next? The threat of showers and thunderstorms is decreasing as the temperature is increasing.

Now, before we get into the hotter and drier weather, we are tracking an area of thunderstorms.

A small area of thunderstorms is coming in from Nebraska and northeast Kansas. At present course and speed it would move through our area 1030 AM-noon, especially north of I-70. A few damaging wind gusts are possible. Stay with KSHB41 and we'll keep you advised.


How hot will it get? When is the next cold front?
