A warm front (yay!) is supposed to lift north across our area later today and with it comes the "slight" risk of severe thunderstorms and all modes of severe weather.
All of MetroRegion K.C. is included in this risk area that was issued early Saturday morning by the NWS' Storm Prediction Center- all except far northwestern portions of Missouri and southeastern Nebraska that is.
The risk of tornadoes is fairly small- "5-percent-" but that risk extends from the Metro K.C. area eastward into Illinois.
Please stay alert to rapidly changing weather conditions today- especially this afternoon and evening- and ANY severe weather watches affecting the MetroRegion will be posted here at CSW.
