HIGH WINDS LIKELY TODAY…WNW winds gusting to 50-60mph will occur from West to East across most of the State.
A late season strong storm system will rapidly develop and strengthen on today. Let’s take a look:
It is this kind of system we see during the Spring. This system would normally be a BIG Severe Weather producer with the amount of wind shear that is forecast- remember wind shear is the changing of wind direction and speed with height.
A very busy forecast for the Central US…
As the low begins to intensify very rapidly across Central KS – cooler air will be ushered in by those strong NW winds. On the NE side of the Low along and North of the I-70 corridor will see the greatest threat for Severe Storms after 2pm. If you live along the US36 corridor from Belleville East to Hiawatha be very weather aware.
Tropical system Christobol is making its way North through MO IA and MN.
After this system rapidly moves ENE out of KS tonight cooler and more seasonal temps will be the rule.
Return flow then begins to set up Thursday through early next week. This will allow temps and humidity to creep back into the Central Plains.
To recap: VERY STRONG WNW Winds will be the biggest threat tomorrow…areas West of I-135 from 3pm-9pm -areas East of I-135 7pm-Midnight.
Enjoy this AMAZING weather day- it is very unusual to be experiencing this strong of a system in almost mid June.
