Different setups this week

Hope everyone had a nice weekend and enjoyed not having damaging thunderstorms in our state. Last week was rough on all of us and especially those who had storm damage.

Scattered showers and a FEW storms will be possible throughout Kansas today (Monday), but the setup is very different than last week. There is a large storm system spinning around the Great Lakes and that is sending much cooler air from Canada down into the Plains. Cooler weather = lower chances for severe storms.

Later in the week:
There will be a shift later this week back to some stormy weather, and it might influence the start of your Memorial Day weekend. I expect Thursday night and again Friday night we will have thunderstorms pushing through the area. Given this kind of setup, strong wind gusts of over 60 mph would appear to be the main threat. We will be taking a closer look at it throughout the week to help you get a better of idea of what to expect heading into the holiday weekend. Seems like every Memorial Day or 4th of July weekend has to have SOME thunderstorms to make it complete.
