A weak disturbance brought a few showers and storms to Northeast Kansas early Monday. Skies have cleared out quickly behind the morning rain and a very hot and humid afternoon is on tap for the entire state as high temperatures will be between 95-100 and heat index values as high as 107 in places.
A cold front will move into Nebraska later this afternoon and showers and storms will develop. This line for storms will drop out of Nebraska and into Kansas through the evening hours. Severe storms will be possible with the main threat being damaging straight-line winds but large hail and even an isolated tornado or two will be possible as well. Heavy rainfall will also accompany these storms and some localized flash flooding will be possible, especially in far Northeast Kansas. Thunderstorms will continue to roll across Eastern Kansas through the overnight hours and should move out of the area before 8AM on Tuesday.
Tuesday will be a very nice day in the wake of the overnight cold front and associated thunderstorms with cooler temperatures as highs will be in the 80s and lower humidity.
