The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for much of the Kansas City area.
The watch is in effect until 10 p.m. Friday. Storms have begun firing in central Kansas and will push east throughout the afternoon and evening.
The first severe thunderstorm warning was issued Friday night for parts of Douglas, Osage and Shawnee counties.
KCTV5 Meteorologist Hallie Shulman says that the storms should reach the metro before midnight.
Gusty winds, hail and heavy rainfall are the primary concern. Shulman advises taking precautions if you have outdoor plans for Friday night.

KCTV5 Chief Meteorologist Chris Suchan said some of the storms could be on the stronger side with winds of 45 to 60 mph. Heavy rainfall is a big concern.
Storm strength should diminish after midnight with just a few lingering showers expected to start our Saturday morning. It's going to be a much cooler day with a morning temperature in the upper 40s and afternoon highs in the low 60s," Suchan said. "Sunday will bring mostly cloudy skies and about a 10 percent chance of isolated rain showers. Temperatures will warm from the low 40s in the morning to the upper 50s in the afternoon."
