Severe Storms and Heavy Rain in the Plains; Cool with Mountain Snow in the Great Basin and Rockies

A cold front combining with Imelda remnants will produce severe storms with large to very large hail, damaging winds, and heavy rain across the Central Plains and Middle Mississippi Valley. Storms may also develop in the Upper Midwest. Mountain snow in the North and Central Rockies, and widespread cooler than normal temperatures will follow the fronts passage. Read More >

A cold front pushed through the Missouri Ozarks and southeast Kansas during the afternoon and evening of March 24th, 2019.  Storms started developing by mid afternoon just ahead of the boundary from around the Lake of the Ozarks region through Springfield.  The storms continued to develop east of this boundary as the boundary shifted eastward through the area throughout the remainder of the afternoon into the late evening.  Some of the stronger storms went on to produce severe hail, with hail up to 2.5" in diameter in Roby, MO.  Storms started to diminish in intensity after sunset with the loss of daytime heating and weakening instability.
