There were limited threats to these storms mainly along the lines of small hail. The system quickly progressed to the east, but the heart of Missouri is not in the clear just yet.

      A warm front will bring warm, moist and unstable air to the area this afternoon as temperatures will rise to the mid 70s. As this warm up occurs, a cold front is going to crash into the airmass triggering another round of severe weather for Mid-Missouri. This second storm system will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds, isolated tornadoes and flash flooding. Stay tuned to the KRCG WeatherLab as we monitor this potential severe weather event.
