Event Summary

A strong storm system pushed across the Missouri Ozarks and southeast Kansas Sunday afternoon and evening April 13th, 2014.  Storms formed into a squall line over eastern Kansas in advance of the strong cold front.  Initially, storms were producing 60 to 70 mph winds over eastern Kansas and far western Missouri where there was better instability.  As the storms progressed eastward across the Missouri Ozarks during the evening, they became less organized as they encountered less instability and eventually sub-severe with wind gusts less than 60 mph.
