You’ll want to keep your umbrella close as off-and-on scattered showers continue to produce rain across the Kansas City area Wednesday afternoon, said FOX4 meteorologist Michelle Bogowith.

“Where we don’t have the rain falling, it will be mostly cloudy,” Bogowith said. “Temperatures will be much cooler than yesterday.”

Highs on Wednesday are expected to be in the 80s, much cooler than Wednesday when highs were in the 90s and heat index values climbed over 100 degrees.

BEHIND OUR REPORTING

How we did this story

The Star produced this weather update in partnership with the local FOX4 television station. The station’s meteorologists create forecast videos multiple times a day for the newspaper to include in its weather reports.

Spotty showers will be possible into the rush hour, she said.

“Better chances for more widespread showers and thunderstorms arrive during the overnight hours,” Bogowith said. “Waking up Thursday morning, it does appear that we will have a very soggy morning commute and bus stop for the kids.”

Showers and thunderstorms will linger throughout the day Wednesday and into Thursday as the Kansas City metro area enters a stormy period, according to FOX4 meteorologist Karli Ritter. The main threat with the storms will be flash flooding.
