KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for the Kansas City metro.

The watch is in effect until 2 a.m., and KSHB 41 Chief Meteorologist Gary Lezak has reported that the line of thunderstorms is moving to the south.

A “rare” nighttime tornado warning also has been issued north of the Iowa border.

The National Weather Service said in a tweet that storms in southeast Nebraska and southern Iowa moving into the metro will bring “the potential for wind gusts in excess of 60mph and hail to half-dollar size.”
