Nice weather ahead

  A very nice stretch of weather for the next several days or so with mostly sunny and dry conditions and temperatures mainly in the 70's. A chance of isolated to scattered thunderstorms starting Saturday and running in to at least the middle of next week as the next trough slowly migrates from the western U.S. in to the plains.

Tornado Watch issued just to the west and northwest of St. Louis until 1:00 AM

New squall line has rapidly developed out ahead of original line in KS. 

Severe weather potential update

Current supercell activity over KS and OK will consolidate in to a squall line later this evening as it moves in to western MO. This activity will try to move toward the area after midnight and may still produce gusty wind gusts and hail. 

More potential will exist tomorrow afternoon and evening as instability and wind profiles will be conducive to produce at least some severe weather. 

The mode and coverage is still in question and will have to be monitored as conditions develop. The highest chance of tornadic activity look to be to the southwest of St. Louis but we are not completely without some potential. Posting this latest graphic which is a leading indicator of tornado ingredients for tomorrow evening.

Convective debris giving us some clouds today

Some clouds around today as convective clouds from dying thunderstorms move over the area.
