It’ll likely be a stormy week in Kansas City as multiple rounds of storms sweep through the region.
But don’t go canceling your outdoor plans yet, because the next few days will not be a washout and not everyone will receive rain with every round, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo.
The first round of storms are expected to form over central Kansas Tuesday afternoon. As the storms move east, they could bring hail and damaging winds. The storms are expected to reach the Kansas City area Tuesday evening.
While there’s a potential for strong to severe storms and thunderstorms, the stronger storms mainly will be west of the Kansas City area. A few strong storms are possible in the metro area, according to the National Weather Service.
Much of the day on Wednesday is expected to be dry. But on Wednesday night, the second round of storms might develop over the Kansas City area. The third round of storms might make its way into the Kansas City area on Thursday evening. A few of the storms could become strong or severe, but the storms will be scattered so not everyone will be affected.
The National Weather Service advises people to be prepared for storms if they have outdoor plans the next few nights. It’s likely they can fit those activities in, but they need to have a way to get severe weather warnings, check radar and access shelter if needed.
