Today is a Storm Track 5 Weather Alert Day, as we continue to track the possibility for severe weather later this evening into the early hours of Wednesday morning. 

Leading up to tonight’s event, this morning will begin in the 50s with scattered clouds. There could be a brief period of drizzle or light rain.  A strong south wind will bring warmer air and moisture into the region making it feel like a spring or summer day, as temperatures jump above 80 degrees this afternoon.

A wind advisory will go into effect at noon and last until 1 a.m., as wind gusts as strong as 45 or 50 mph are possible. Later tonight, storms are expected to fire up along a cold front in Nebraska and Iowa and quickly move towards Kansas City. Damaging winds are the primary threat, but a quick tornado could form as well. 

Be sure you have multiple ways to receive weather alerts as these storms will hit close to midnight, while many have gone to bed.
