Early Tuesday AM July 5th Update – The Summer Heat is Back

Good early Tuesday morning, everyone. I hope everyone had a good and safe 4th of July. At least most, if not all, of us had a decently good day for the holiday weekend. After we saw quite a bit of rain and t-storms, we were able to enjoy a quiet Monday with highs in the middle to upper 80s. Even though we will stay dry for our Tuesday, the accumulated rain with higher humidity and heat will make today feel sluggish. We’re quiet on the radar below…

The stationary front that we had for most of last week has lifted north of the area. That means we stay quiet today but we’re back into the summer heat and humidity…

After we start in the lower to middle 70s this morning, a south wind with mostly sunny skies will mean we won’t waste any time heating up throughout the day. Expect highs to top out in the middle to upper 90s…

Even though the thermometer will say we’ll be in the 90s today, it’ll feel hotter than that. Combine the accumulated rain we saw this past weekend with dew points expected to climb into the middle to upper 70s…

… we’ll have it feeling like it’s anywhere between 100 and 110 degrees during the peak heating of the day. Even though we transition to mainly a quiet weather pattern today through Thursday, we may have a slight chance to see a few t-storms early Wednesday morning. The Future Track below wants to bring a complex of t-storms into northern Kansas and northern Missouri by 7 AM Wednesday…

In terms of those rain chances getting here to start Wednesday morning out, those chances look slim. It may clip our far northern counties, but we’re again keeping the overall weather setup for the next few days on the quiet side. Regardless of how we start Wednesday morning, it’ll be another hot and humid Wednesday with highs back in the middle to upper 90s…

We repeat the same story again for Thursday as we stay hot and humid. We could have a shot of getting highs back into the lower 90s by this coming weekend thanks to a front that may sneak in from the north. If that happens, we could also get some better t-storm chances back in here. We’ll keep an eye on that setup as the week rolls on.
