CSW Weather: "Slight Risk" Severe Weather Chances Over Central States Later Today- Saturday

After a break of a whole day- parts of the Central States- including Metro Kansas City on Saturday- are under the gun for a chance of more severe weather for about the next 48 hours.

The good news is that the chance for any more tornadoes is low- as the "slight risk" of severe weather  is expected to be mainly large hail.

Later today- the storms are expected to develop over parts of southeastern Kansas- southwestern Missouri- northeast into central and southern Oklahoma and extreme northwestern Arkansas along an old frontal boundary.

That front is expected to lift north on Saturday as will the severe weather risk- from about the northeastern quarter of Kansas eastward across about the northern half of Missouri into central Illinois.

Once again- large hail is the primary severe threat with any chance of tornadoes very small.

Summer-like weather will prevail into the last part of this Memorial Day weekend locally- with highs in the upper 80's and high humidities with some rain chances later next week.

CSW wishes all of you a safe and relaxing Memorial Day weekend!
