Weekend storms looming

Mother's Day weekend may have to deal with the threat of severe weather. Aside from some rain and isolated thunderstorms during the morning hours, Friday should be a quiet weather day. A warm front will move in from the west on Saturday and stall over Mid-Missouri bringing the chance of scattered showers and storms during the afternoon and evening hours. Some of these storms could be severe. Isolated rain/storms may continue into early Sunday with stronger activity expected for the northern half of the viewing area later in the day. The timing for these strong storms again looks like the peak heating hours of the late afternoon and early evening.

Wind and hail will be the biggest threats with the storms for both Saturday and Sunday. However, a few tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Be aware of changing weather conditions through the day, especially if you have outdoor plans.
