Changing weather

April 16, 2014 

Lee’s Summit has seen the full spectrum of weather in the last few days, with highs on April 12 running into the low 80s before storms settled in on April 13. Some areas of Lee’s Summit saw nickle sized hail and residents in downtown reported up to 1.3 inches of rain. Before the day was over, the temperature had plummeted 30-plus degrees. Wind advisories with the warm weather turned to freeze advisories and a dusting of snow on April 14 as temps struggled to get out of the high 30s and fell to 27 degrees that night. Pictured here, the corner of Second and Jefferson streets in downtown Lee’s Summit facing south around 5 p.m. April 13 as afternoon storms settled in. Highs are expected in the 50s and 60s still this week and near 70 April 18.
