All of MetroRegion Kansas City- including the Metro- is inside a "slight risk" forecast area for possible severe thunderstorms later today.
The primary severe threats will again be large hail and damaging wind gusts- the latter like what struck Ottawa and Garnett-KS yesterday afternoon.
Friday could ALSO see a chance of severe storms in many of the same areas- according to the SPC's "Day-2" outlook.
What I'm watching this morning is a MCS or mesoscale convective system (group of thunderstorms- see radar images) moving down the Missouri River north of Omaha at this post.
This MCS is moving south-southeast toward the MetroRegion- and eventually Metro K.C..
