Any more- EVERY news story HAS to have some symphonic musical opening before it's shown on a local newscast.
It's really- REALLY lame and adds NOTHING to these no-newscasts.
You don't see this on network news. What's up with this locals?
The motorcycle with 2 people on it was struck by a car- the driver of the car was not injured.
The driver of the motorcycle was dead at the scene- his female passenger in her 20's was taken to an area trauma center with critical injuries.
** MAN SERIOUSLY-INJURED IN LIBERTY-MO WRECK **
<><><> OVERNIGHT WEATHER <><><>
Skies were variably cloudy overnight with a few showers moving through the Kansas part of the Metro into Cass County MO early this morning. Temperatures held in the low to mid-70's through dawn with winds calm or light generally from the north.
There will continue to be a chance of a few- light showers over the same areas until about mid-morning.
Once again later this afternoon into this evening there are thunderstorm chances. No severe weather is expected- but watch out for the cloud to ground lightning and very heavy rainfall in the storms. Temperatures will be around normal- but high dewpoints will make it feel hotter with light winds.
With the K.C. MetroRegion being the area inside the yellow dot- you see the "slight" risk area of possible severe storms runs generally west of a line from northwest Missouri into eastern then south-central Kansas and southwestward into the Oklahoma panhandle.
Regardless-an interesting day weather-wise today- with storm cell movements from the north-northeast to the south-southwest- as you see by 2 comparative radar images from Des Moines-at 11 PM Sunday night and the most recent at 2 AM Monday morning.

A lovely mid-summer's night throughout the MetroRegion with light winds and temperatures in the mid-60's to lower-70's at dawn.
Thunderstorm chances are there during the afternoon and evening over the MetroRegion all week long- with more general coverage possible late Monday and early Tuesday. Temperatures will remain near to slightly above-normal through late week.
