CSW WEATHER: New Storms Forming to West of K.C. May Prompt New Severe Weather Watch

Thunderstorms have increased in coverage and intensity generally along I-70 in central and eastern Kansas- and the Storm Prediction Center may well issue a new severe storm watch for eastern Kansas and Metro Kansas City within the next hour or so.

Many living in parts of Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties KS as well as southern Platte- Clay and north and eastern Jackson counties in Missouri are still dealing with the after effects of Sunday afternoon's severe storms.

As you can see on the KCP&L map image shown here- thousands are still without electricity as winds of up to hurricane-force tore though those areas from about 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

The new area of storms may mainly affect areas along and south of the Kansas and Missouri rivers.
