Very interesting storm

We have strong southerly winds out ahead of a storm that will affect us later this afternoon and overnight and Sunday. Winds are blowing out of the south at 10-35 mph and this will continue into Sunday. Take a look at the surface map below:

There are some showers possible this afternoon, but the beter chance of rain and thunderstorms doesnt come until this evening. A line of showers and thuderstorms is likely to form and push through the area this evening. But with a cooler system and limited moisture, the storms should stay below severe limits. I wouldnt rule out 1 or 2 storm reaching marginally severe limits.

This will be a thin, fast moving line, so rain totals will not be high at all - maybe up to 3 tenths of an inch The the cold front will move through later tonight and by Sunday morning temperatures will be in the 40's with a chance of some rain and snow, then as temperatures drop during the day, it turns to all snow and there could be some accumulation in northern Missouri, possible over an inch or more.

Be carefull today if you traveling to Nebraska as a big late season blizzard is ravaging the state with strong winds an up to a foot or more of snow!
