CSW WEATHER: Off and On Severe Storms This Weekend

Much of MetroRegion Kansas City- including the Metro- is forecasted to have severe thunderstorms today- Saturday and Sunday- according to the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center (NWS-SPC).

The wet- stormy weather pattern could last through the middle of next week as well.

Today's cloud-filtered morning sunshine will give way to increasingly lower and darker clouds from the south- as a developing area of showers and thunderstorms moves north from northeastern Oklahoma (OK) and southeastern Kansas (KS).

Large hail is the primary severe threat early- with some chances for tornadoes later this afternoon and evening over eastern KS and western Missouri (MO).

There is also an increasing flash flood risk over the same areas- especially by late weekend.

More chances for severe storms on Saturday- but the weekend days shouldn't be total washouts- with most likely chances of storms overnight- early morning- late afternoon and evenings.

The severe risk extends over our area into Sunday.

Please keep an ear and eye on the latest weather developments in case severe weather threatens YOUR area.
