Overview

A powerful storm system tracked across the upper midwest with a trailing cold front that swept through the Missouri Ozarks and southeast Kansas.  While we were on the warm side of this storm system, not much instability developed over the area which was held down by the clouds and rainfall during the day.  There was just enough to get develop some line segments as we had plenty of shear and system dynamics.  Very little to no lightning occurred with this severe weather event that produced some wind damage and a tornado near Fair Play, MO.
