CSW Weather: Upgrade of Severe Storm Risk Friday- Saturday and Sunday in Kansas City MetroRegion

It appears that the Kansas City MetroRegion is going to have our first bona-fide severe weather outbreak beginning later tomorrow (Friday)- with a "moderate risk" of severe storms on Saturday...

The NWS' Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has the MetroRegion outlooked to possible receive severe thunderstorms and tornadoes beginning Friday afternoon with the threat extending into Sunday.

In Metro Kansas City- it appears the greatest threat for severe weather could come later Saturday into Sunday- until a dry line and cold front passes by.

One area NWS office- Topeka- even mentions the possibility of violent- long-track tornadoes in our area on Saturday- with storm activity maintaining it's severity even in the nighttime hours!

Please take this time to review and/or plan a weather safety procedure for your home- workplace and/or mobile activities.

When severe storm watches and/or warnings are issued- please call friends and family to make sure THEY are aware of the situation and to seek underground shelter if need be.

PLEASE- don't let the weather end your world in 2012!
