We’re in an early summer mode as we head into June. A combination of warmth and humidity was just enough to trigger some spotty shower and thunderstorm activity Tuesday. It will be a combination that will lead to additional spotty shower and thunderstorm chances as we head into the weekend.

Isolated showers end this evening with temperatures gradually sliding into the 70s by 8 pm and finally reaching lows in the low 60s overnight. A pocket of upper-level energy over Northeast Kansas could trigger a few spotty showers and storms over Western Missouri early Wednesday, but most areas will remain dry.

The nearby disturbance and heat and humidity will combine to generate another round of pop-up storms later Wednesday into Wednesday evening. The chance for rain is slightly higher Wednesday, but still not widespread therefore it shouldn’t be necessary to cancel outdoor plans ahead of time.

Thursday will follow in line with temperatures perhaps a degree or two warmer than Wednesday with another chance for hit-or-miss showers and storms, mainly in the afternoon. Winds over the next few days will be light from the south to southeast around 5 to 10 mph.

The coverage of showers and thunderstorms may be a little greater Friday and Saturday as the atmosphere continues to moisten up. There may be a boundary Saturday to help focus rain chances as it moves southwest through the area.

That boundary will also be the leading edge of drier air with rain chances falling back into the “slim to none” range Sunday and Monday. Hotter temperatures will come with the drier weather with many spots up near 90° for the first time this year.
