KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Severe thunderstorms are headed towards the Kansas City metro, bringing with them possible hail, heavy rain, lightning and strong winds.

The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for northeastern Johnson County, eastern Wyandotte County, KS, as well as southwestern Clay County, west central Jackson County and southeastern Platte County, MO.

The severe weather could bring with it hail larger than a quarter in size, gusty winds in excess of 60 mph, lightning and very heavy rainfall.

Storms will likely be ongoing through the late afternoon, evening and overnight hours. Any leftover showers and thunderstorms will diminish by mid-morning on Father's Day with strong to severe thunderstorms likely to redevelop late Sunday afternoon or evening.

A spokesperson for the Kansas City Chiefs said they are opening the gates to the stadium a half hour earlier than planned so that fans in the parking lot have a chance to get out of the elements when it starts raining. They opened the gates at 3:30 p.m.

The spokesperson said those attending the concert will be able to go to their seats or the concourse.

The concert was supposed to start at 5 p.m., but Arrowhead officials announced they are delaying its start time due to the weather. Kacey Musgraves took the stage about 6 p.m.

The spokesperson said the concert is a rain or shine event, but they do have plans in place for all kinds of weather, including severe weather.

The Arrowhead stadium and security staff will be monitoring the weather situation and will plan announcements based on what comes up.
