CSW Weather: Dense Fog This Morning- Severe Storms Later Today in Central States

National Weather Service (NWS) advisories for dense fog continue this morning over a large part of Kansas and smaller portions of Missouri- Nebraska and Oklahoma through about 9 a.m. Sunday morning.

The dense fog advisories cover all of Metro K.C.- and that part of the MetroRegion generally along and south of U.S. 36 highway.

A strong low pressure system with it's associated warm and cold fronts will adversely affect Central States weather later today into midday Monday.

According to the NWS' Storm Prediction Center (SPC)- there are increasing probabilities of severe thunderstorms- with some producing possibly strong tornadoes- over central and southern portions of our 6-state Central States area.

A "slight" risk of severe storms will exist later today generally along and southeast of a line from near Parsons KS northeast through Nevada to near Columbia and Hannibal MO..

The higher "moderate" risk area  includes extreme southeastern Oklahoma- much of Arkansas except the northwest and southern areas- and about the southeastern 1/3 of Missouri.

And if all that isn't enough- there is a chance for some type of wintry precipitation on the backside of this storm system late tonight into Monday morning from eastern Kansas into western through northern Missouri- including (again) Metro Kansas City.

So far- no advisories have been issued by the NWS on any of that possibility- but stay tuned....
