First Alert Forecast

*** PDS ( Particularly Dangerous Situation Tornado Watch Until 9PM FOR for Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Chariton, Cole, Cooper, Howard, Macon, Moniteau, Monroe, Montgomery, Randolph and Saline County until 9:00pm. The threat for storms should end before this time, as a frontal boundary pushes through central Missouri over the next few hours. If storms can form they will have the potential to produce very large hail and long track tornadoes, but that is dependent on the formation of storms. Storms very well could form east of our viewing area. Stay tuned to KOMU 8 and download the KOMU Weather App for updates.
