AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO 1112 PM CDT Wed Jul 28 2021
Discussion. Issued at 316 PM CDT WED JUL 28 2021
- Afternoon heat index values will once again return to the 105 to 110 range Thursday.
- Similar heat index readings will be possible Friday afternoon across portions of east central Kansas into west central Missouri, generally S/W of the KC Metro.
- A break in the heat is expected for the weekend into much of next week, with near to slightly below normal temperatures for the period.
Little change to the forecast. Confidence remains high to once again see air temperatures warm into the middle to upper 90s Thursday afternoon, with heat index values in the 105 to 110 range. A heat advisory remains in effect for the entire area.
Upper ridge begins to lose some influence over the eastern portion of the Central Plains as it gradually retrogrades westward with an upper trough amplifying and diving into the eastern CONUS Friday into the weekend. At the surface, a psuedo-backdoor cold front will slowly shift south/southwestward Friday into Saturday. This will provide the next best chance for thunderstorms - initially Thursday night through Friday night across the northeastern half of the CWA, then over the southwestern half Friday night into Saturday night.
As for temperatures, perhaps the greatest forecast challenge remains with Friday afternoon max temperatures/heat index values. Uncertainty remains with respect to potential upstream cloud cover and scattered thunderstorm changes along the front, and the specific placement of the frontal boundary. All of this will have notable effects for specific peak values. Have held off on extending ongoing heat advisory for Friday, but will likely see some areas south and west of the front reaching criteria Friday afternoon. Otherwise, much more pleasant readings are expected this weekend into much of the upcoming work week.

VFR conditions are forecast to prevail through the period. Winds will remain light and out of the southwest and west. Expect generally clear skies this morning, with slowly increasing mid- level ceilings through midday. Looking ahead, scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop late in the period and may impact airfields north of the Missouri River. Will leave mention out of TAFs at this time given low confidence in coverage and timing.
