Many in the metro have seen wet and chilly conditions starting overnight Friday and through Saturday.

Showers and thunderstorms rumbled through the area Saturday, with many areas picking up .50" to .75" since the rain began late Friday night.

Storm Track 5 meteorologist Tom Wachs said we could still see a few strong storms overnight, with strong winds being the main threat.

The Storm Track 5 Weather Team will be watching the storms closely. Stay tuned to KCTV5 and KCTV5's weather page for all updates on severe weather.

Rain will end by mid-morning Sunday, leaving us with a partly cloudy and windy end to the weekend.

The rain affected some area sporting events on Saturday.

The Fall Classic between Northwest Missouri State and Pittsburgh State being held at Arrowhead had at least two evacuations due to lightning delays. The game resumed sometime after 6 p.m.

Fans in Lawrence waited out the storm after lightning strikes forced a weather delay at Memorial Stadium. KU and Oklahoma State resumed play following the near 90-minute delay in the first quarter.

In Columbia, players from Mizzou and Alabama headed to the locker rooms after lightning forced a delay there. Play resumed shortly after.
