Nasty weather threatening Saturday’s match in Kansas City

Bad weather-Kansas City

We’ve written a lot about tonight’s match at Livestrong Sporting Park.

Let’s hope by later tonight, we’re only writing about the attacking menace of Kei Kamara and the high pressure of Kansas City’s 4-3-3, not about the deadly serious menace of terrible storms or the undesirable effect of high pressure weather systems.

These are the ominous words from the Weather Channel:

A large upper-air cold pocket will exit out of the Four Corners and meet up with a humid and very warm air mass still present across the Plains and parts of the mid-Mississippi Valley. Other factors including an energetic jet stream energy and winds changing in direction with height will all lead to a much greater threat for tornadoes compared to earlier in the week.

The greatest threat for tornadoes exists in the Sooner State and south-central Kansas, including Wichita and Oklahoma City. This is a life-threatening situation and you should make sure you have an action plan if tornado watches and warnings are issued for your area.”
