Isolated strong to severe storms possible north of I-70 tonight

Warm, humid air being pulled in from the south will keep the atmosphere over Mid-Missouri somewhat unstable throughout the day. Highs reach the lower 80s with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon.

A stationary boundary parked over far northern Missouri will stall over the northern third of the state throughout the day and evening, providing lift for the development of thunderstorms late in the afternoon into the evening.

Given the amount of instability, there’s a possibility that some of these clusters of storms could become strong to severe.

The main severe risk is north of I-70, mainly along and north of Highway 24. The atmosphere is lacking significant wind shear, also known as the changing of wind direction and/or speed with height. Therefore the tornado threat for Monday is very low.

The primary threats for any isolated severe storms tonight will be large hail and localized damaging winds up to 60 mph.

This threat will wane overnight as the front lifts north as a farm front, with mainly dry conditions expected Tuesday.
