Rain and storm chances will increase this week as a wet pattern develops over the central U.S. Some storms may be severe Tuesday afternoon and evening across northern Missouri and northeast Kansas. Unfortunately, rain chances will only increase as we head into the latter half of the work week as a slow moving storm system moves over the area.

In the Sedalia/Warrensburg area, rain chances slip back into the forecast Tuesday and continues through Saturday night. The first opportunity for a rain free is forecasted for next Sunday, June 9.

According to the National Weather Service:

Tuesday through Sunday

 Severe storms will be possible Tuesday afternoon and evening. Large
 hail and damaging winds are the main concerns with this activity.

 Several rounds of rain and storms are expected this week with
 continuation right into next weekend. Rain may be heavy at times,
 which will only exacerbate ongoing river flood impacts across the
 area.
