Tornado Watch in effect for parts of Mid-Missouri

A TORNADO WATCH is in effect for western portions of Mid-MO until 1 AM Monday morning. The counties in this watch are Saline and Chariton.

KRCG 13 Meteorologist Dan Ebner is keeping his eye on showers and thunderstorms that are developing along the border of Missouri and Kansas this evening. Currently, these storms are moving to the northeast. But as we go through the evening and into the overnight hours, storms should start to evolve into a large complex of strong storms that will make a turn to the east and southeast.

Overnight, the tornado threat looks rather low, however, we will see a threat for some damaging winds, possibly some large hail and very heavy rain. Main timing for showers and thunderstorms in Mid-Missouri (starting with the northwestern counties) will be after 10-11 PM this evening until 4-5 AM Monday morning.

You can find up to date interactive radar information online and Meteorologist Dan Ebner will have a full break down of the radar and an up-to-date look at the forecast on KRCG 13 Live at 10.
