Two rounds of showers & storms Thursday

Strong, low level winds will carry moisture and a wave of low pressure into southern Missouri Thursday morning. Showers and t-storms are expected to move into south-central Missouri by daybreak and track to the northeast through early afternoon. These will affect the Lake of the Ozarks area by mid-morning to near I-70 by noon. Areas near and east of HWY 54 have the best chance of rain as these showers and t-storms move northeast, gradually shifting east and out of Mid-Missouri by 4PM.

The next chance of rain arrives as a narrow band of fast moving showers & storms moves in ahead of a cold front during the evening hours. A broken line of rain and storms is expected to reach near HWY 65 by 7pm, quickly moving east and out of Mid-Missouri by midnight. Strong wind shear and limited instability will give us a small chance of strong winds with these storms as they move through.

There is a marginal severe storm risk for all of Mid-Missouri Thursday evening due to the potential of isolated storms with damaging wind over 60 mph. The tornado and large hail threats are very low. Rainfall amounts of a quarter to half inch are expected with Thursday’s rain.

The Stormtrack Weather Team will have updated tracks of the storms and what they will bring on ABC 17 News and at
