Hallie’s Hint: Sunday 12:30 pm Severe Update

Good news and bad news today. With it being Mother’s Day, the showers and thunderstorms are putting a damper on today’s outdoor events. The good news, the storms that are moving through the area will help stabilize the atmosphere which in turn will result in a lower severe threat through the afternoon and evening.


With cloud cover and thunderstorms moving through, it’s going to take a great deal of sunshine and heat to help strengthen storms to severe levels. That’s not to say we won’t see severe weather today though. We remain under a “slight risk” for severe weather through the afternoon and evening hours.


Showers and thunderstorms will remain likely through the afternoon and evening, most storms will remain below severe criteria.



The main threat with any thunderstorm that can strengthen to severe limits will be gusty winds in excess of 60 mph and quarter size hail. Our tornado threat is not zero, but it is on the lower side. Northern Missouri is where we’ll be watching for a quick spin up tornado through the afternoon and evening.


Stay with the StormTrack5 Weather team for the latest on the severe weather today.
