FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) -

After a weekend of intense heat and a couple of warm weekdays, rain and cooler weather is on the way.

Wednesday is expected to continue in the hot and humid trend but quickly change as afternoon storms roll in.

A batch of showers and thunderstorms are expected to move through the northern areas of the Kansas City area late Wednesday morning. The storms are expected to stay in between Interstate 70 and the Missouri-Iowa state line. No severe weather is expected to accompany the storms.

As Wednesday mornings storms moved in, a Heat Advisory that had been in effect for most of the metro was canceled. 

After the first round of storms moves out, intervals of clouds and sun are expected to allow temperatures to climb into the upper 80s. 

StormTrack5 Meteorologist Chris Suchan says the morning round of storms is expected to cloud the chances for a second round of storms later in the day.

“If we keep temperatures quite a bit cooler because of cloudiness and rain-cooled air, the severe risk becomes very marginal if at all for this evening,” Suchan said. “It all depends on how much the atmosphere recovers later this afternoon with breaks of sun and some heating ahead of evening development.”

Suchan says, after a lull in the middle of the day, there is a risk of strong to possibly severe storms as evening approaches.

If stronger storms do persist, Suchan says there could be brief wind gusts, torrential rain, hail and frequent lightning.

The storms are making their way into the metro as some are still without power after strong storms rocked the area on Saturday.

Kansas City Power and Light says 734 of its customers are currently without power and BPU says 984 customers are in the dark.

After the overnight storms, cooler temperatures are expected to push into the metro for the rest of the week and into the weekend.
