Dry April might be about to end.

Today’s sunny, warm weather – possibly tying the Kansas City record with a high of 91 – is expected to give way to cooler, wetter weather for several days. At least a chance of rain is in the forecast every day from this afternoon through next Tuesday. Gardeners might want to note that overnight lows aren’t expected to dip below the low 40s during that same period. The highest chance of severe weather weather is on Friday.

The chance of rain is 30 percent this afternoon, and isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected after 4 p.m. Generally, rainfall is expected to be less than one-tenth of an inch except where thunderstorms move through. The chance of rain overnight is 10 percent, and the low is forecast at 64.

It’s the same pattern – but cooler – on Thursday, with a high of 78, a 30 percent chance of rain and showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, followed by a 50 percent chance of rain in the evening and a low of 54.

Friday brings the best chance of rain: 50 percent in the day and 40 percent that night. High 68, low 49. Forecasters say things look unstable for that day, so there is the chance of supercells forming, meaning the risk of heavy thunderstorms and even tornadoes.

Saturday, Sunday and Monday look calmer and cooler, with highs near 60 and a 30 percent chance of rain each day. Tuesday brings a 60 percent chance of rain.
