Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Good morning! We've had a quiet night for the most part with storms confined to central Missouri, but new storms have formed this morning over eastern Kansas and western Missouri. They're not severe but are producing a lot of lightning. These are expected to weaken by mid morning, with many areas getting substantial sun today. This will allow highs to reach the 80s, with more storms developing by early afternoon. I expect an extensive line of storms to develop by late afternoon or early evening over western Missouri, and this line will move through the viewing area through early tonight. Severe weather is likely with a low tornado threat and a moderate hail and wind threat. Locally heavy rain may fall as well. Behind the front much colder air is coming and highs will, at best, reach the lower 60s Friday and Saturday. Patchy frost is possible Saturday morning.
