CSW WEATHER: Severe Storm Watches In The Kansas City MetroRegion

Severe thunderstorm (tstm) watches affect the Central States from Iowa (IA and Nebraska (NE) south into eastern KS..

One tstm watch- No. 318- covers an area generally along and west of U.S. 75 highway- and includes MetroRegion KS cities such as Topeka- Emporia and Seneca until 11 p.m. this Saturday night.

Just in the past few minutes- Douglas and Jefferson counties KS were added to Watch No. 318- inculding the cities of Lawrence and Oskaloosa.

Another watch includes NE cities such as Lincoln and Omaha.

Currently- severe storms have erupted southwest of Topeka- and are moving toward the KS State capital.

General storm movement is forecast to be slightly north of due east- so tstms could affect Metro K.C. later this Saturday night-early Sunday morning.

CSW will be on-duty overnight- so any severe weather affeting the Metro will be posted here as soon as it's reported.
