Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Good morning! A line of storms has weakened significantly this morning, but scattered cells continue to develop behind the main line. Another cluster of storms is heading into western Missouri from eastern Kansas as the low-level jet turns a bit. This, too, is showing a weakening trend and I expect it to continue. By early afternoon we should see some sun over much of the region, with highs ranging from the mid 80s to the lower 90s this afternoon. A cold front will begin moving into central Missouri late this afternoon and this should ignite another round of storms. Severe weather is possible including hail as large as golf balls, wind gusts to 60 mph and even a low threat for a tornado. I expect much of this activity to be after 5 pm and begin primarily in central Missouri. Thus, several hours of the afternoon should be rain-free for any outdoor activities. As the low level jet kicks in tonight there is potential for training of storms and some very heavy rain. This is scenario in which several inches of rain could fall in a few spots, but pinpointing exactly where is difficult. A front will be in the vicinity through Wednesday so scattered storms will remain possible.
