With the heat index hovering around 100 degrees, Tuesday might be the last dry day for the work week in Kansas City.
Temperatures will be higher than normal Tuesday afternoon as highs are expected to climb into the lower 90s. But when the humidity is factored in, it will feel around 100 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo.
Storms, however, are expected to return to the metro area as a cold front drops down Wednesday, producing scattered storms late in the afternoon and evening. A few of the storms could become severe, bringing large hail and high winds across northern Missouri, including the KC metro area.
The heaviest rains, however, are expected to fall Thursday through Friday night as remnants of Hurricane Newton move into the Kansas City region. A couple rounds of storms are possible, bringing 1 to 3 inches of rain across a widespread area. Some areas could see higher amounts, according to the National Weather Service.
The weekend, however, should be pleasant, with highs in the mid- to upper-70s on Saturday and Sunday. It also appears that it will be a dry weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
