Severe Weather Summary - July 2, 2008

Another round of severe weather swept across eastern Kansas and western Missouri on Wednesday bringing large hail, damaging winds, and flooding. A long duration severe weather event began across the Kansas City Metro area as a cluster of HP Supercells produced up to baseball sized hail as well as small bowing segments producing damaging straight line winds across many areas of the metro. In addition, torrential rainfall of upward of 6.50 inches fell across portions of the city resulting in major flash flooding across Leavenworth, Platte, and Wyandotte counties. Wind damage also occurred across portions of Holt and Buchanan counties associated with a bowing segment.
