First Alert Forecast: A Stray Strong Storm Today...BIG Heat By Tomorrow

Adjust Comment Print

There is a slight risk of severe weather across the far northeastern plains. The warmth and humidity combined helps create high instability and an area of low pressure approaching us from the west will provide the "lift" the atmosphere needs to fire up showers and storms. Those spotty storms will move to the southeast, into southcentral Kansas in the evening and overnight. Scattered storms will occur on Friday, followed by more tranquil weather for the weekend. Winds S 5-10 miles per hour. Highs: Upper 80s to near 90. There is one model that keeps the storms lingering in the area so for now will keep the storm chance in during the morning. The result will be not as many showers and slightly warmer high temperatures.

Lows will be in the low 70s with highs in the low to mid 90s through the week. Highs will be in the low-mid 80s. Will wait to see what models continue to show later today and of course tomorrow. The greatest chance will be in locations north of the I-20 corridor.
