KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The National Weather Service has canceled a Tornado Watch for some counties in the Kansas City region.
Several counties on the Missouri side of the Kansas City area — including Carroll, Livingston, Caldwell and others — have now been downgraded to a Severe Thunderstorm Watch.
The FOX4 Weather Team is monitoring severe weather conditions Tuesday night:
Severe Thunderstorm Watch
The NWS has canceled all Severe Thunderstorm Warnings in the Kansas City region. As of 11 p.m. only a Severe Thunderstorm Watch, issued until midnight, remains.

Kansas: Johnson, Leavenworth, Linn, Miami and Wyandotte
Missouri: Caldwell, Carroll, Cass, Clay, Clinton, Daviess, DeKalb, Grundy, Harrison, Jackson, Lafayette, Livingston, Mercer, Platte and Ray
FOX4’s Weather Team said incoming cool air has been cutting storms off from any available energy and moisture, causing them to weaken and die out so far.
While Kansas City-area residents should remain Weather Aware until midnight, the risk of severe weather is decreasing.
The entire Kansas City area is also under a Wind Advisory from 2 p.m. Tuesday until 1 a.m. Wednesday. Strong winds are moving through the region, gusting up to 45 mph into the evening.
