Severe storms possible Wednesday, Thursday

An unsettled, stormy week is expected across Mid-Missouri with multiple chances for rain and thunderstorms and mild temperatures.

Spotty showers and thunderstorms are possible Monday and Tuesday due to low-level moisture being pushed into the area by warm, southerly winds. No severe weather is expected Monday or Tuesday, and only up to a trace of rainfall is expected.

A warm front will move in late Monday night into Tuesday, bringing in very warm, well above average temperatures for Monday night and Tuesday, priming the atmosphere for severe weather potential Wednesday.

A cold front arrives Wednesday, slowing down as it moves across the state.

This cold front will act as a lifting mechanism for thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon, with the best chance of severe weather in Mid-Missouri between 4 and 10 p.m. All of Mid-Missouri is under a slight risk for severe storms Wednesday, with the possibility of damaging winds, 1″ diameter or greater hail, and isolated tornadoes. The highest risk for strong storms will be west of Highway 65 Wednesday.

On Thursday, the focus will turn to areas east of Highway 65, with the highest risk of severe storms east of Highway 54, including Montgomery, Maries, Gasconade, and Osage counties. All modes of severe weather are possible on Thursday.

Up to 1″ of rain is possible between Wednesday and Thursday.
