Severe weather could impact weekend plans

Heading into this weekend we are seeing an increasing risk for severe weather. Luckily, rain looks unlikely Saturday morning and afternoon, which is good news for Mizzou’s homecoming, but a line of storms will approach mid-Missouri after 9 PM. As storms track into the area we will see heavy rainfall and the potential for severe weather.

Timing on the overnight storm system looks slower than before, arriving in our northwest counties around 9 PM or later. This is when we will see the strongest line of thunderstorms. As the the line tracks to the east, instability diminishes, reducing our risk for severe weather.

Areas along and west of HWY 63 are under a slight risk for severe weather. Scattered storms are likely, bringing the possibility for damaging winds and the small potential for quarter size hail. Our eastern counties are under a marginal risk for an isolated severe storm or two.

Along with severe threats, there is the possibility for localized flooding. These storms are going to be efficient rain makers as southerly winds ahead of the front pump in ample moisture. Rainfall totals could be in excess of 2″ off to our western counties. Most of mid-Missouri will see around 1″ of rain.

Lingering showers will persist Sunday morning, but dry and cooler conditions are to follow. Stay up to date with this evolving storm system with the ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Team on air and online.
