The storms are expected to move into the Kansas City area late evening. But the risk rises to “enhanced” – or level 3 – in some areas by Tuesday and Wednesday.
During severe weather events on both Tuesday and Wednesday, high winds, hail, flash flooding and tornadoes are possible.
“A few of those storms could become strong”, Laflin said.
“Keep an eye, and have that weather radio handy”, Mulford said.
There is now a slight risk for Thursday as well, and Wednesday’s activity could play a major role in how Thursday’s storms develop. The Weather Service office serving Omaha warned of a “substantial severe weather threat” with “all modes of severe storms possible”. While there is a small chance of a shower/storm Saturday night into early Sunday morning along HWY 36, we’re looking at dry conditions other than a small storm chance on Monday.
