Storms possible this weekend, heavy rain & severe threat

Showers & t-storms in southwestern Missouri are forecast to move to the northeast and into the Lake of the Ozarks from 10 AM to 4 PM Saturday. These will be very “hit and miss” and are not expected to be severe. A few more spotty storms are possible west of HWY 63 from 5 PM through 9 PM Saturday. Due to the spotty nature of the rain Saturday, rain chances are low, especially for northeastern counties of Mid-Missouri. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 70 Saturday afternoon.

A line of showers & t-storms in Kansas will move east late Saturday night and affect much of Mid-Missouri through Sunday morning. Some of these storms could produce heavy rainfall west of HWY 63. Showers will decrease through the afternoon Sunday with the driest areas east of HWY 63 through early evening. However, additional storms are forecast to move in late evening and overnight Sunday through early Monday morning. These will also be capable of producing heavy rain.

The storms which develop Sunday afternoon-evening have the potential of becoming strong with isolated cases of severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center has put areas south of I-70 under a marginal risk of severe storms Sunday afternoon- evening for the possibility of isolated storms with damaging wind and large hail.

Rain pushes east early morning Monday with drier weather for the rest of the day. Storms are expected to develop in western Missouri Monday evening and move east overnight through Mid-Missouri. These could be strong with gusty winds, heavy rain and frequent lightning.

Rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches are expected west of HWY 63 through Monday with up to 3 inches possible. This could lead to flooding of rivers, creeks, streams and low water crossings. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect from Saturday evening through Monday evening. There continues to be some minor flooding along the Missouri River and additional flooding is possible this weekend.
