Chances for storms return for the Kansas City area Sunday through Tuesday following Friday’s showers, the National Weather Service says.

Widespread showers Friday morning left as much as a quarter inch of rain in Lee’s Summit and a few other locations, but most areas got much less. A squall line moved across the Kansas City metro area Friday evening with lightning and heavy downpours.

Saturday was forecast to be mostly sunny, with a high near 86, while Sunday was to be warmer with highs in the lower 90s and heat index values as high as 96.

Showers and thunderstorms, some of which could be severe, were likely Sunday night, with a 70 percent chance of rain. Showers and thunderstorms were forecast to continue Labor Day into Tuesday though chances of precipitation were to decrease each day. Highs were to be in the mid- to upper 80s; lows were to be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
