Actually- Metro Kansas City has only a "slight risk" of severe thunderstorms later today- but areas of central thru northeastern Oklahoma through southeast Kansas into extreme southwestern Missouri are under a "high risk" of severe storms and tornadoes.
Only a "moderate risk" extends into the extreme southern portions of the K.C. MetroRegion- near Nevada MO and Fort Scott KS..
A sample of a few cities in the high risk area are Oklahoma City- Tulsa- Bartlesville- Coffeyville- parsons and Independence KS..
The best chance for the ugly weather will be from about 5 through 10 p.m. this Monday afternoon and evening in the high risk areas as well as the slighter-risk areas.
In these high-risk situations- there's usually an enhanced tornado risk- especially for strong/violent- long-track twisters- similar to what hit Mississippi several weeks ago.
Any severe weather watches will be posted here at CSW as soon as we get them....
