A strong bow echo is moving South/Southeastward along I-29 between Omaha and St. Joseph at this hour. Wind gusts of 90 mph and baseball size hail were reported in Omaha earlier this evening, and within the last 10 minutes, wind gusts of 67 mph were recorded at Clarinda, Iowa (just across the Missouri border).
If this bow echo continues on its present track and intensity, the Kansas City area can expect possible damaging winds in excess of 60 mph during the 11 o'clock hour this evening.
If you live ahead of this bow echo across extreme northwest Missouri and extreme northeast Kansas, take action now to secure light weight, loose objects outdoors in case strong winds impact your area.
