High heat, storms and flash flooding are in the forecast for Monday from the National Weather Service.

Today’s temperatures will be a high near 94, with a heat index as high as 101, the weather service said.

The temperature at 10 a.m. was 81 degrees with a heat index of 84.

The weather service said hot and humid conditions along with an arriving cold front from the north will lead to severe thunderstorms early this evening.

The main concerns will be strong damaging winds with the greatest threat found in northeast Kansas and northern Missouri, the weather service said. Severe hail also is possible with any storms that develop later this evening and overnight.

The severe weather threat possibly may result in heavy rain and possible flash flooding overnight as the cold front slowly sinks south across the area.

As this occurs, strong winds in the lower atmosphere may pump ample amounts of low-level moisture north. The end result could be heavy rains with the possibility of flash flooding, according to the weather service.

A flash flood watch is in effect for Wyandotte County and surrounding areas from 7 p.m. Monday until 7 a.m. Tuesday, the weather service said.
