KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City is in the middle of a wide swatch of America’s midsection in a slight risk for severe weather on Saturday.
The center of this storm system is now pushing over Nevada, Utah and Arizona and will be tracking across the Central Plains Saturday.
The result: a severe weather threat from Texas through KC and on into Wisconsin. In KC, there's a chance for scattered t-storms that may be severe Saturday afternoon. Heavy rain with a few severe t-storms are likely for Saturday evening.
The main threat will be heavy rain [1/4" to 2+"] and strong wind [possibly 60mph+] within heaviest t-storms. Small hail is possible and the tornado risk is low, but stay tuned in case that should change.
With the chance for storms comes warmer temperatures. Saturday will see a high of 77 degrees.
