A strong storm system winding up in the High Plains will bring a severe storm threat to mid-Missouri Sunday afternoon through evening. Storms will rapidly develop in eastern Kansas and western Missouri ahead of a cold front Sunday afternoon and move to the east through the evening.
As the storms develop in the afternoon in eastern Kansas and western Missouri, they are expected to be supercells which will pose a threat of very large hail and tornadoes. Some of the tornadoes could be strong (EF2-EF5). The probability of a tornado within 25 mph of a point is highest in western Missouri and decreases toward the east. (SEE RELATED CONTENT)
As the storms move east through early evening, the storms will pose a greater threat of strong, damaging winds in excess of 70 mph, large hail and isolated tornadoes. The highest probability of damaging winds is east of HWY 63 where there is a 30% chance of 57 mph winds or greater.
Storms will move out of mid-Missouri by late-evening Sunday. Please check back for updates and tune in to ABC 17 for live updates during storm warnings. You can track storms with us on our website at abc17news.com where you can also sign up for free text alerts.
