Severe Weather Fairly Likely Late in the Weekend

With all the activites going on this weekend, the word to keep in the back of your mind is weather. Sunday and Monday bringchances for severe storms to northeast Missouri. Forecasters in Kansas City last night likened the developing situation as reminiscent of some of the major tornado days on record.

A trough is expected to move into the Plains by Sunday afternoon leading to a surface low that will move to our north. This will result in the entire area being in a broad warm sector with dewpoints likely in the mid to upper 60s. Storms will likely initiate over eastern Kansas during the afternoon hours and become supercells. As winds veer into the evening and overnight hours storms should organize into more of a line/ convective complex.

Monday will be greatly dependent upon what happens Sunday night. Latest guidance suggest that the front will be nearly east of us by the evening hours with winds across the area veered southwesterly. If the wind gets around to the southwest, that will reduce our chance for high-end severe weather Monday.
