Strong storms possible Monday afternoon/evening

Strong storms possible Monday and Monday Night:

One final round of strong and a few severe storms will move through Mid-Missouri as a cold front pushes into the area Monday afternoon.

Thunderstorm chances will ramp up in the afternoon as an approaching cold front interacts with warm and humid air across Missouri.

The prime time for thunderstorms would be after the lunch hour on Monday. However, the main line of storms will move through late afternoon and through the evening. A few pop storms are possible early in the afternoon on Monday, these isolated storms will eventually merge into a large line of strong showers and t-storms. This line will move across the state of Missouri through the afternoon and evening. The main line of showers and thunderstorms will move out after midnight, however, light rain will linger through the overnight hours. All of Mid-Missouri is under the risk to see some severe weather. The main threats will be some large hail and damaging winds. The tornado threat is rather low for Monday.

Heavy rain is likely across Mid Missouri and especially the southern parts of the area so flash flood could become a concern Monday evening and overnight.

After this cold front fully moves through, our weather pattern will settle down a bit over the next 5-7 days. Light rain will be possible as moisture wraps around the center of low pressure to our north. Temperature will also take a tumble. Highs on Tuesday will be in the lower and middle 60s. Cooler temperatures remain until atleast Friday.
