Two Days of Severe Weather

Here is the breakdown of severe weather threats for later today and tonight:

The significant tornado threshold is 5% and that is highest in southeast Kansas. Kansas City is in the 5% area.

Damaging thunderstorm winds (15% significant threshold) are possible in the areas outlined.

For large hail (≥1"), the significant threshold is also 15%. The hatched area is where hail 2" in diameter or larger is forecast.

For Thursday and Thursday night, a large area will be affected by severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds. A tornado or two is possible.

Even though it is autumn, Forecaster Evie urges you to pay attention to the weather if you live in the areas outlined above. Tornadoes can occur in any season.
Evie and I will be watching the weather today and will update these forecasts in early afternoon.
