Mid level ridging currently resides over the forecast area which led to a fairly quiet Friday and Friday night. Overnight a shortwave pushed east off the Rockies bringing a line of showers and thunderstorms across Kansas. Thunderstorms have produced gusty winds, but generally remained below severe criteria. Storms should continue to track northeast impacting far northwest Missouri around daybreak. While severe weather is not anticipated, gusty winds and brief heavy downpours could be a possibility.

Storms are expected to move out of the forecast area mid morning leaving the middle part of the day dry. Temperatures return to above normal for the afternoon with highs reaching the lower 90s for most locations. Heat indices will be in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees. Additional thunderstorm will be possible during the afternoon and overnight hours Saturday. Instability will be on the rise during the afternoon along with bulk shear of around 30 knots should be sufficient to produce a few strong to severe storms.
Highest potential for strong to severe storms will be across far northwest MO during the afternoon hours. Right now, hail and strong winds look to be the primary hazard, but an isolated tornado can't be ruled out with potential for a few supercells in the area. The severe threat dwindles overnight but showers and thunderstorms linger, eventually moving out of the forecast area by Sunday morning.

As we head into Sunday ridging pushes off to the eastern US and begins to build. With troughing off to our west we will remain in the middle with decent southerly flow Sunday and continuing into the work week. Precipitation chances look fairly minimal for the early part of the week. Temperatures will be the main concern each day with Sunday looking at highs reaching the mid 90s and heat indices in the upper 90s to lower 100s. Similar conditions can be expected on Monday with mid 90s and near 100 heat indices. The good news is that dewpoints look to stay mainly in the 60s through this period keeping our heat index values for soring. We should finally see a bit of relief (although minimal) Tuesday night into Wednesday as a front moves through the forecast area bringing the return of showers and thunderstorms.

Issued at 612 AM CDT Sat Jun 15 2024

Showers and thunderstorms are currently pushing to the southeast into STJ and toward MCI. Storms should continue to weaken this morning with impacts mainly being confined to STJ.
After storms move out, expect winds out of the southeast to pick up and gust up to 20 knots this afternoon. VFR conditions are expected through the afternoon.
