KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas City could break records on Wednesday when it comes to high temperatures as we’re expected to warm into the ’70s. But how turbulent the bigger story is likely to be.
If you think Tuesday is windy, it’s child’s play against the gusts we’ll see on Wednesday.
A rare high wind warning was issued Wednesday for most of the Kansas City area. Subway is was under the high wind, was released earlier this week.
Several counties south and east of the metro are under Wind Warning, but those areas will remain windy.
By Wednesday morning, gusts are expected to exceed 40 mph. During most of the day, wind speeds of 40-50 mph are possible.
In the afternoon and evening we expect gusts of about 50-60 mph!
All these strong winds can cause problems with damaged old trees, power outages and even driving.
A cold front will move on Wednesday night after a band of showers and thunderstorms. We don’t expect anything serious with that system, but it should cool us down for the second half of the week and into the weekend.
