I grew up in central Kansas, but now I live just over the border into Missouri on the north side of the KC Metro area.
I picked up the habit of weather watching pretty young because I preferred to know where the weather they were talking about was and if I needed to worry about it. When they start talking about towns like Basehor, I start to take notice because those often track up into my neighborhood. Watch the weather long enough, and you get a pretty good feel for the prevailing patterns in your area, so you know if and when you ought to pay attention.
I also watch these days because my migraines can be sensitive to atmospheric pressure changes, so it's always handy to know when the big pressure drops and climbs are coming.
Of course, it's highly unlikely any tornadoes last that long, but this one was making us pretty nervous.
