CSW BREAKING: Severe Storms Possible in K.C. Metro-MetroRegion Late Thursday

ccording to the National Weather Service's (NWS) Storm Prediction Center (SPC)- much of the Kansas City MetroRegion- including the Metro- is inside of a "slight risk" forecast area for possible severe thunderstorms later tomorrow.

The tornado risk at this time is fairly small and the SPC expects "large hail" to be the primary severe threat- but another SPC graphic indicates a "30%" probability for  ANY severe storms from the Kansas City Metro westward along Interstate 70 into Kansas.

Bear in mind- a severe thunderstorm CAN produce a tornado at any given time if conditions are appropriate.

I'll keep you posted here at CSW on this severe weather threat for later Thursday....
