Happy Friday Kansas City! Did you know it’s Friday the 13th and the only Friday the 13th we’ll see all year long?

Well, on this Friday the 13th, we’ve got an opportunity for some impressive storms out there this morning. It’s brought to us from the west and will continue to track eastward through the viewing area this morning. This area of low pressure in its respective frontal boundary system will drag along northern Missouri, producing an opportunity for heavy rain and gusty winds. Stay weather alert out there on the major highways and surface streets. Slower going will be a wise choice with heavy rain.

The storm will lessen through the afternoon and potentially pick up this evening around the time we’re getting done with work and heading out for date night. This evening, one more round of isolated, intense storms or possibly some severe weather is possible. This area of low pressure and the front moves on just in time for Saturday, and we are expected to dry out.

Temperatures today and tomorrow will be in the low and mid 80s. By Sunday, there’s an opportunity for a few hit-or-miss showers and storms, but the temperature drops even more to the mid and upper 70s. As we move into the following work week, a few hit-or-miss showers and storms will be on the way starting Tuesday, and will continue into our next weekend. I don’t anticipate a washout each day, however, a few intense storms and heavy rain cannot be ruled out. Temperatures will remain though within the upper 70s and lower 80s .
