FOX4 meteorologist Joe Lauria gives a Thursday afternoon weather update
Thunderstorms were rumbling through northern Missouri Thursday, and the weather forecast called for a chance of strong winds and hail in the Kansas City area, according to the local FOX4 television station.
Meteorologists were watching active skies in southeastern Nebraska and northeastern Kansas too, expecting that storms in the area could bring flooding rain, said FOX4 meteorologist Joe Lauria, who provided an updated forecast to The Star.
“We’re watching for several things overnight into the wee hours of tomorrow morning,” Lauria said. “We want you to be weather-aware.”
Since earlier in the day, the forecast called for storms overnight, and a chance for severe weather.
