Rain early in the day Sunday will move east and end but additional storms will likely develop by late afternoon in our southwestern counties and track to the northeast. These storms are expected to develop near Truman Reservoir 5-6 PM and spread to the east-northeast through late evening ahead of a cold front which will slowly push south overnight.
There is a marginal severe threat for most of Mid-Missouri with a slight severe threat in Benton county and southwestern Missouri where storms are more likely to become severe.
The best chance of strong to severe storms will be in areas south of I-70 and west of HWY 63 where instability will be the greatest. Large hail is the main threat with these storms with a chance of strong, damaging wind gusts as well. The tornado threat is very low, only at a 2% probability within 25 miles of a point.
Storms are expected to weaken as we head into late evening as the line slowly moves southeast. We will have updates as storms move in on our Live Weather Updates page and on our ABC17News Facebook page. You can also follow ABC17Stormtrack on Twitter for updates.
