Tornado Watch In Effect: Possibility of Severe Weather Increases

Tulane will play a doubleheader Saturday with Houston

Only one of those tornadoes was greater than an EF1 - that was an EF3 last May that went through Polk, Barron, Rusk and Price Counties, killing one person.

In its forecast, the Storm Prediction Center said they have "upgraded to a tornado-driven moderate risk centered on the Ark-La-Tex to central AR with the potential for several tornadoes to occur within this region late today through tonight".

A Tornado Watch has been issued until 9 p.m. Friday for the counties of Anderson, Coffey, Franklin, Johnson, Lyon, Shawnee, Atchison, Doniphan, Jackson, Leavenworth, Miami, Wabaunsee, Brown, Douglas, Jefferson, Linn, Osage and Wyandotte. These storms will move quickly to the northeast and exit the area Friday evening. The main threats are looking to be more high winds and large hail, but an isolated tornado or two can't be ruled out.

Strong thunderstorms are expected to sweep into the Kansas City area Friday afternoon and evening, bringing the metro area's first threat of severe weather this season. Stronger storms may produce damaging wind gusts, hail, deadly lightning, and brief but heavy rain.
