A second round of storms Thursday in the Kansas City area brought hail to Johnson County. Olathe received quarter-sized hail, and pea-sized hail was reported near Kansas City, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill. The storm is expected to move northeast this afternoon along I-35.

The area was under a severe thunderstorm warning.

Although sunshine is expected Friday, storms will continue to develop over the region Saturday night, the National Weather Service says.

Severe storms are predicted throughout Sunday and Monday in eastern Kansas and western Missouri, with several inches of rain possible across the area.

The National Weather Service issued an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for the southern metro area until 3:30, saying if any flooding occurred, it should be short-lived.

Heavy rains, however, forced the closure of Belinder Avenue near Brookbank Lane in Mission Hills.
