Severe weather possible Tue afternoon and night
Mon, 02 Jun 2014 23:23:49 GMT — Severe weather is possible Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning in Mid-Missouri. A warm front will move north across Missouri during the day on Tuesday and stall out across the northern Missouri in the evening and overnight. The warm front will open the doors to very warm and a very unstable air mass over much of the area. This will be the focal point for showers and thunderstorms Tuesday and into Tuesday night. While most of Tuesday morning and afternoon will be on the calm side. As we get into late afternoon and early evening, we could see a couple isolated thunderstorms develop as that warm front moves north. Any thunderstorms that develop will have the potential to have very large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes with them. Overnight, attention will turn to the north as a very strong complex of thunderstorms looks like it will form over Nebraska and Iowa. This will move east and south over northern Missouri and into central Illinois. This complex of thunderstorms will not impact all of Mid-Missouri. Locations that will be most impacted will be from 1-70 and north. However, the most intense portions of this complex of thunderstorms will stay north of Hwy 24 in northern Mid-Missouri. Threats with the overnight storms will be torrential downpours and widespread wind damage. An isolated tornado is possible across extreme northern parts of Mid-MO, but that threats is on the low side. Thunderstorms could linger until sunrise in eastern portions of Mid-Missouri.
