Storm Chances on the Rise

Severe weather on Saturday night will stay focused across Missouri and southern Illinois. However, a few showers and even a couple of thunderstorms will drift our way from Iowa overnight through sunrise.

Have that umbrella handy this Mother’s Day! Scattered showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast for Sunday. The best time frame for storms is during the afternoon and evening hours. With a warm front lifting north, our temperatures will rise into the middle and upper 70s across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. We’ll notice an increase in humidity as well.

That warm front will also act as a trigger for thunderstorms to develop. Cities such as Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Omaha, Kansas City and Wichita have the greatest risk for severe weather, including the threat for a tornado. Locally, we will be at Threatrack Level 2. Strong wind, hail, torrential rain and cloud-to-ground lightning will be our biggest concerns. We may have to monitor the radar for possible rotation. Thunderstorms, however, will be scattered in nature.

Our thunderstorm chances stick around Sunday night and Monday. Monday could very well be another active day across the Midwest. We will remain at Threatrack Level 2 until a cold front sweeps through the area Monday night.

Monday: Threatrack Level 2
