First Alert Forecast
We are in a slight/enhanced risk for severe storms this evening and tonight.
Winds have picked up out from the south at 10-20 mph and has ushered in a new warmer, moisture rich airmass. Temps out the door will be in the 60s under cloudy skies with a few spotty rain showers this morning.
Conditions will be mainly dry this afternoon and remaining very breezy with gusts up to 30 mph. A few peeks of sunshine may be possible and will only help to warm temps into the middle to upper 70s.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop over central and northern Missouri this evening ahead of a strong cold front. A few isolated storms may form over the Ozarks this evening. Some of these storms may become strong or severe with our main threats as heavy rain, damaging winds and large hail. However, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out tonight.
Most of these storms will be nocturnal and are expected to be at their zenith overnight which makes this storm system especially dangerous. Be sure to leave your NOAA Weather Radio and/or your KOMU 8 Weather App turned on loud tonight when you go to bed so you stay alerted to severe weather warnings.
Rain is expected to clear by Wednesday morning with breezy west winds cooling temps back into the 40s and 50s through Friday.
