Several waves of storms and thunderstorms will move across the Kansas City area Friday and this weekend. Although there could be some severe storms, they’re not likely to be widespread.
Friday is expected to get off to a rainy start, with a few thunderstorms possible, especially in the morning. Severe thunderstorms and heavy rain, however, are not expected, according to the National Weather Service.
After the rain moves out, Friday afternoon is expected to be drier, but mostly cloudy. Highs Friday through Sunday are expected to be in the middle to upper 70s.
Another round of storms are expected to develop Saturday with a few scattered thunderstorms likely to develop in the afternoon — especially for areas near and southwest of Kansas City, according to the National Weather Service
A few of the storms could be severe, with hail and wind being the primary threat.
On Mother’s Day, another round of storms is likely — this time across most of the region. Sunday will provide the best chance for severe weather, however large hail and damaging winds will be the primary threats in a few of the stronger storms. The threat of tornadoes is low, according to the National Weather Service.
By Monday morning, the cold front associated with the storms is expected to have moved through the area and the area will clear out during the day. Temperatures will be cooler behind the front with highs in the 60s.
Tuesday is expected to remain dry and cool, with highs remaining in the 60s.
