Good early Wednesday morning, everyone. Well, we managed to avoid seeing any strong and severe t-storms yesterday. The big weather story overall turned out to be how hot and humid it was. Highs went into the lower 90s and it was humid with dew points well into the 70s. As far as where we are early this morning, we had a few t-storms on the KS side on the radar below, but they’re pretty much an issue for the Kansas City metro…
Our main weather story today will not be any t-storm chances. I expect today to stay on the dry side. Instead, it’s the heat and humidity. Do you see our area colored in coral below? Those are heat advisories that will be in effect from noon until 8 PM tonight…
The heat advisories will be put into effect today because of where our temperatures will go today. We start the morning drive near 75° and waste no time getting to 90° by noon. By the peak heating of the day, we’ll have highs around 96° in Joplin with outlying areas in the middle (possibly upper) 90s…
Combine the temperatures with dew points which will go back into the 70s this afternoon, the moisture will make it feel like we’ll be around 105°. Needless to say, if you aren’t used to that kind of heat, take it easy if you have outside plans and take frequent breaks in cool places inside if necessary. I expect tonight and Thursday morning to be quiet and warm again with lows starting near 76°. For Thursday afternoon, it’ll be hot and humid again with highs back at least in the middle 90s…
There could be a few t-storms that may pop up Thursday and Friday afternoon, but we stay pretty much quiet through the rest of the week and into the weekend. We trend drier for the upcoming weekend, but we’ll stay hot with highs in the lower 90s through the weekend and into next week.

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT: THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM
