Today, Wednesday June 6th, was a windy day across the Sunflower State to say the least. An extremely powerful low pressure system moving out of the Rockies and across the Upper Midwest is the culprit of the windy conditions. This storm has a barometric pressure that is equal to a category 1 hurricane. The same storm system is bringing severe weather to Nebraska, and the Dakotas. So, I guess we will take the trade off. However, a thunderstorm is considered severe when its winds surpass 58MPH. In Concordia, KS there was a wind gust of 58MPH. Winds that strong are capable of producing damage. Here are the peak wind speeds across the state and into Western Missouri
Kansas City------47 MPH
St. Joseph, MO---51 MPH
