We have clouds crossing our sky this morning, and there is an upper level disturbance producing thunderstorms over central Kansas. These thunderstorms are heading our way, and they’re still hours from Kansas City. We’ll take a look.

There is a higher level disturbance moving towards us. Here is the radar just before 7 a.m.:

This disturbance is captured by the monsoon flow. Monsoon means “seasonal wind”. The United States summer monsoon is a description of the seasonal flow aloft that brings moisture to the southwestern United States. Sometimes this moisture will be diverted east over Kansas City, and that happened this week.
