Storms still rumbling 1:00 AM

The line of thunderstorms is still slowly pressing to the south and east. The storms are still in a training motion so flooding is a continuing concearn. Take a look at the radar image below:
There have not been any tornado reports and this severe weather event has not been as "eventfull" as it could have been. The surface low in Kansas did not develop quick enough for prime severe weather conditions. Instead of any supercells forming, the thunderstorms quickly lined up and it became a wind/hail event.

Some of these thunderstorms are still reaching severe limits and the SPC has the area under a slight risk for severe weather and a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is issued for locations that may be affected by this line of storms. Take a look at the watch area below:

I dont a think a new Watch will be issued east of this one due to the small risk for severe thunderstorms. The cold front that is pushing the storms along has pushed into Missouri and is bringing in the cooler air. Take a look at the surface map below where I have drawn in the fronts:

Lows behind the cold front will drop into the upper 40's to low 50's and the temperatures will not rise much for your Wednesday with highs in the mid to upper 50's and a chance of some showers. Temperatures across northern missouri will likely dip just below freezing Wednesday night. A warming trend will begin this weekend with temperatures well into the 70's returning to the area.

I will have a new entry tomorrow morning.
