The weekend is coming- so naturally there's an increased chance for thunderboomers.
The NWS's Storm Prediction Center has much of the Kansas City MetroRegion- including the Metro- in a forecast area of possible severe thunderstorms today and tomorrow- the latter's forecast period ending 7 a.m. Sunday.
The primary threat will be for large hail- 1-inch diameter or greater- with a lesser chance of severe winds- 58 m.p.h. or greater- and only slight chances for tornado formation.
WIth those strong to severe storms will also be a possibility of torrential rainfalls and flash flooding.
Today's severe weather forecast covers about the northern half of the K.C. MetroRegion- and Saturdays forecast shifts south to include southern areas- including the Missouri 'Quad Lakes'- as well.
Most storms will strike from late afternoon through overnight into early morning hours.
CSW will be on-duty overnight this weekend to watch and post any severe weather information.
