(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Severe storms caused widespread damage around St. Joseph overnight.

The storms were marked by heavy rain and damaging winds. At one point tornado sirens sounded in parts of St. Joseph and Buchanan County but no tornado warning was issued or confirmed by the National Weather Service.

Strong winds ripped the roof off part of an apartment building on Genefield Road and the Patee House in downtown St. Joseph. The storm also brought down trees and power lines across many communities leaving thousands without power.

It will be a cold start to the work week, with cloudy skies and below average highs in the low-to-mid 50s for northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. Tuesday and Wednesday a cold front will move in and give us a chance for rain and t-storms. As the warm front moves in and remains stationary it will spark rain/storm chances Wednesday through Thursday. Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with a high in the upper 70s. A cold front moves back in Friday returning highs to the low 50s for the weekend.
