Expect showers and thunderstorms to develop overnight tonight as a warm front moves through Mid-Missouri. The severe threat from Tuesday night will be mainly in western central Missouri (mainly along and west of US-65); this severe threat will mainly consist of large hail. Most will likely miss out on severe weather tonight, but we will see showers and thunderstorms overnight into early Wednesday morning. Wednesday: After early morning showers and thunderstorms move out of the area, a lull in the precipitation should occur. This should lead to some clearing for the afternoon, allowing temperatures to soar to near 70 degrees again during the afternoon as a warm from moves north through Missouri. We could find a few isolated thunderstorms developing along the warm front as it continues to move north into northern Missouri. If one of these isolated storms becomes strong, the main threats would be damaging winds and large hail; the tornado threat should remain on the low side for Wednesday.
More widespread showers and thunderstorms will develop late Wednesday evening and overnight. Some of these storms will be strong to severe with damaging winds and large hail being the primary threats. Thursday: After morning showers and thunderstorms move out this will once again lead to some clearing with temperatures warming into the low/mid 70s. Showers and thunderstorms will redevelop in the afternoon and evening as a cold front pushes into Mid-Missouri from the northwest. All modes of severe weather (damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes) look possible Thursday. There will likely be some tweaks and small changes to this as we get closer.
