The long-anticipated cool-down is on the way- and before that cooling- there's a "slight" chance of severe storms across our area for about the next 12-18 hours.
Referring to the NWS-Storm Prediction Center (SPC) graphic- you'll note that virtually all of the K.C. MetroRegion is in this forecasted area for possible severe storms later this Friday afternoon into the overnight hours of early Saturday.
The primary threat will be damaging wind gusts and possibly large hail.
The tornado threat is very small- but not completely out of the question- especially in discrete supercells that form this afternoon.
CSW will be on-duty all night to post any breaking weather developments as needed.
