KQ2 Forecast: Tornado Watch until 10 p.m. for parts of the area

A Tornado Watch is in effect for parts of the area until 10 p.m.

Posted: May 28, 2019 2:37 PM

**Tornado Watch for Atchison (Kan.), Doniphan, Buchanan, Platte, Clinton, DeKalb, Caldwell, Daviess, and Livingston counties until 10 p.m.

**Flash Flood Watch for Holt, Atchison (Mo.), Nodaway, Andrew, DeKalb, Worth, Gentry, Daviess, and Harrison counties until 7 a.m. Wednesday.

A widespread severe weather outbreak is probable on Today. Storms will begin to develop this afternoon and move through during the late afternoon and evening hours. Make sure your severe weather plans are in place and that you have ways to receive watch and warning information.

The Storm Prediction Center has the area in a moderate risk, that is a four out of five on the SPC's risk categories. Right now, the best timing for severe weather will be during the afternoon and evening hours, 4-10 pm is the likely time frame. Large hail up to golf ball size, damaging winds up to 80 mph and a few tornadoes are looking to be the main threats. We also still have flooding concerns from the heavy rain events the last few days, which has made the soil saturated and caused standing water issues on roads and low lying areas. We will be keeping a very close eye on the forecast for Tuesday so stay tuned to KQ2 for more updates throughout the day.

We'll have very slight chances of rain for Wednesday and Thursday, but we will be dry for the most part. Mostly sunny skies on Friday before more rain chances once again return for the weekend. Temperatures will be in the middle 70s to lower 80s.

Heat and humidity will continue to rise today with temperatures warming into the upper 90s this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Heat index values will be between 107-109 this afternoon. Thursday will be even hotter with temperatures making a run for 100. Heat index values will likely top 110 on Thursday. Be cautious when spending time outside the next two days. A heat advisory remains in effect across the area until 9 PM on Thursday. Thursday night into Friday a cold front will approach our area. This will give us some isolated to scattered rain chances into the weekend as well as some cooler temperatures. Highs will be near average this weekend topping out in the mid to upper 80s.
