INSIDER BLOG: Tracking some afternoon storms

Hot and humid conditions-that's what storms love to feed off of. We'll have plenty of that in places as a complex of storms dives south.

With temperatures returning to the low to mid 90's, and dewpoint temperatures nearing 70-we won't have much standing in the way of a complex of storms that's already rolling through Nebraska. Those will continue to dart southward over the next few hours.

Many times, complexes like these like to follow right along an axis of instability. This can give us a rough idea of where these will end up later today. But they can stray a bit east and west of that axis, so anywhere shaded will have the threat of storms later today.

Areas of greatest instability will be southwest

With higher instability and shear staying west of the viewing area, the severe threat is looking fairly low. If this group of storms moves a little further east than expected, gusty winds and some small hail will be possible. But as of this morning, that's expected to stay along and west of Kansas City.
