Tracking showers and storms for the weekend

Volatile, warming weather Thursday could end with strong thunderstorms — and a soggy Cubs game

Saturday isn't looking like a washout but keep an umbrella on stand by.

Though the storm is expected to weaken as it moves across the state, localized flooding in poor-drainage areas and wind gusts up to 30 to 40 miles per hour can still be expected. Additional strong storms are possible by the middle of the upcoming work week. Stay weather aware for any post game celebrations on Broadway.

More than $3700K raised for boy thrown from Mall of America balcony
Witnesses told officers that the child may have been thrown or pushed and that a male suspect had taken off running. Potts said on Saturday there were "a lot of witnesses that were helpful" in the incident Friday.


We avoid the active weather tonight, but we could see a few showers rolling in from the southwest.

A line of potentially severe storms will move eastward through the area into Sunday morning. We're hopeful that outdoor events that are scheduled can still take place. Our main concerns at this time are damaging winds, however large hail, and an isolated tornado are possible. The severe threat is expected to last into Sunday evening before coming to an end. Clouds will be on the increase as temperatures will go from near 70 into the lower 60s by early Sunday morning.

Falcon Heavy launch delayed again, now targeted for Thursday evening
As with the first Falcon Heavy mission in February 2018, the two side cores made a side-by-side landing along the Florida coast. The massive Falcon Heavy rocket was tested successfully in 2018 when it managed to carry a red Tesla roadster to space .


Monday: Becoming partly cloudy and cooler with temperatures topping out around 60.

MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Low: 51. Lows are going to dip back into the 40s. A few of these storms could be strong to severe, with hail and high wind gusts being the primary threat, mainly for central and eastern Kansas. Wind turn briefly to the southeast in the morning which many be enough to help us warm into the 50s, however temperatures will quickly crash in the afternoon, with many spots falling into the 30s by late afternoon.
