According to the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center- this risk runs generally along and east of the state line to just east of Kansas City- then generally east of I-35 in Missouri (see/click on graphics).
Metro Kansas City is not included in this slight risk area at this time.
The risk will be mainly Thursday afternoon when a thunderstorm squall line is expected to develop along a strong cold front that will sweep through the MetroRegion Thursday afternoon.
If the frontal movement is faster than forecast- the severe storm risk area will move east. If the front is slower to arrive- Metro Kansas City may be included in a risk area.
