ISSUED AT 238 AM CDT SUN OCT 24 2021  
 
TODAY:  
 
OVERNIGHT, A WARM FRONT LIFTED NORTH ACROSS MID MISSOURI. STORMS  
HAVE STAYED FAIRLY WELL BEHAVED OVERNIGHT, WITH MOST STAYING  
BELOW SEVERE LIMITS. A FEW ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS  
HAVE DEVELOPED IN THE WARM SECTOR IN A BROAD AREA OF ASCENT.  
SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT ANTICIPATED WITH THESE MORNING STORMS, BUT  
BRIEF HEAVY DOWNPOURS WILL BE POSSIBLE.  
 
SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WILL MOVE OUT BY MID MORNING AND WE  
WILL SEE SOME DRY TIME THROUGH THE DAY. LIKELY WILL SEE QUITE A BIT  
OF CLOUD COVER LINGERING THROUGH THE DAY, BUT EXPECT TO SEE SOME  
CLEARING IN THE WARM SECTOR. AMPLE SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL CONTINUE TO  
DRAW MOISTURE NORTH THROUGH THE DAY. AS THIS HAPPENS, INCREASING  
CAPE VALUES UP TO 2000 J/KG WILL BE IN PLACE BY THE AFTERNOON.  
ADDITIONALLY HEALTHY SHEAR APPROACHING 50 KNOTS WILL ALSO INCREASE  
THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. BY EARLY AFTERNOON, EXPECT A COLD FRONT TO  
BE MOVING INTO WESTERN MISSOURI. THE FRONT WILL CONTINUE TRACKING  
EAST, WHERE EVENTUALLY STORMS WILL IGNITE ALONG IT. STORMS ARE  
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP EAST OF I-35 AND WELL EAST OF THE KANSAS CITY  
METRO. MOST WILL STAY DRY, BUT THOSE IN OUR FAR WESTERN AND  
SOUTHEASTERN COUNTIES WILL WANT TO PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE  
SKIES IN THE AFTERNOON. STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO QUICKLY DEVELOP AND  
MERGE INTO A LINE WITH THE MAIN SEVERE THREAT BEING STRONG WINDS.  
BUT ANY STORMS THAT CAN STAY MORE DISCRETE WILL HAVE A SHORT  
LIVED POTENTIAL FOR LARGE HAIL AND A TORNADO CAN'T BE RULED OUT.  
THE LINE OF STORMS WILL MOVE OUT OF OUR AREA BY SUNSET AND WILL  
TRACK THROUGH SOUTHEAST MISSOURI WITH CONTINUED POTENTIAL FOR  
STRONG WINDS IN THOSE AREA. BUT FOR US, EXPECT A DRY FORECAST TO  
RETURN BY LATE SUNDAY EVENING.  
 
THE WORKWEEK:  
 
THINGS WILL COOL OFF BEHIND THE COLD FRONT AND  
MONDAY MORNING LOWS MAY DIP INTO THE 30S AGAIN FOR THOSE IN  
NORTHWEST MISSOURI. THE REST OF THE AREA SHOULD EXPECT MID 40S TO  
START THE DAY MONDAY. SUNSHINE WILL RETURN MONDAY, BUT ITS GOING  
TO REMAIN CHILLY WITH HIGHS ONLY TOPPING OUT IN THE 50S ACROSS  
THE AREA. DRY WEATHER WILL CONTINUE ON TUESDAY WITH A BRIEF WARM  
UP INTO THE 60S AGAIN. ACTIVE WEATHER WILL RETURN TO THE AREA  
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AS A DEEPENING TROUGH SWINGS THOROUGH THE  
MIDWEST. THIS WILL BRING ADDITIONAL CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AND  
THUNDERSTORMS. HIGHS WILL RETURN TO THE UPPER 50S FOR THE SECOND  
HALF OF THE WEEK WITH LOWS REMAINING IN THE 40S. DRY CONDITIONS  
WILL RETURN FOR FRIDAY INTO HALLOWEEN WEEKEND WITH HIGHS BACK TO  
THE LOW 60S TO UPPER 50S.

WILL LINGER INTO THE AFTERNOON, BUT SOME SCATTERING OUT IS  
EXPECTED PRIOR TO THE ARRIVAL OF THE COLD FRONT. THIS FRONT WILL  
SHIFT WINDS TO THE NORTHWEST AND GUSTS UP TO 30 KNOTS WILL BE  
POSSIBLE THROUGH THIS EVENING.
