CSW Weather: Brief Relief From Heat Wave in Form of Severe Storms Possible Thursday
Cloud cover this Wednesday morning is offering SOME relief from this extended heat wave.
More than 16 KC-MO residents have already died from reported heat-related issues.
According to the "Day-2" outlook from the NWS' Storm Prediction Center- the Metro Kansas City and northern MetroRegion areas are forecast to have a "slight" risk of possibly severe thunderstorms from 7 a.m. Thursday to 7 a.m. Friday.
A weak cool front will settle into our area later tomorrow- but will bring only some temporary relief from the 100-degree temperatures until a stronger cool front makes it's way south late in the weekend or early next week.
Today's severe storm risk will be in northern areas of the Central States- across Iowa and Nebraska- and some of these storms could drop south into our area on Thursday.
