Expect to see more thunderstorms along and south of M-59 through Wednesday night's drive home, with activity fading near sunset. A few strong to marginally severe storms will be possible on Friday afternoon and evening, generally east of the Kansas turnpike.

A surface low pressure system developing in the central US on Wednesday will track into the Great Lakes region by Thursday.

Our severe threat will be heavily weighted by how warm we get.

Today will be warm and windy with highs in the 80s under partly cloudy skies with a powerful south wind.

For now, just keep it in the back of your mind that you may have severe thunderstorms Thursday afternoon or evening in southeast Lower.

The strongest storms will be north of I-70 and east of United States 31.

Tomorrow other than a stray shower or even t-storms left in the morning we'll have decreasing clouds and highs in the mid-upper 60s. These storms should not be severe. That will be your friend in T-Town Saturday avoiding the heavy storms moving into the region. IF there is going to be a tornado (which is a very small chance) it would be when storms initially develop so something to be aware of. The primary risk in our area will be damaging winds and large hail. Temperatures will be cooling down into the 40s and 50s by early Thursday morning.

The threat for additional severe weather, including tornadoes, will escalate from Nebraska and Iowa to Illinois, Kansas and Missouri into Wednesday night.
