Here are the current conditions – you can see where the front is located as well as the surface Low over North Central KS – IT IS FORECAST TO NOT INTENSIFY GREAT THAN 990mb which is why the Winds have been back off some…
Here is the SEVERE THREAT on the Warm side of the Storm.
The best area for Tornadoes are close to the Triple point in Northern Missouri as well as where Jet Stream winds provide the best Wind Shear over Arkansas.
Severe Storms are possible East of US75 later this afternoon.
This storm will be a SLOW mover- the Cold side of the storm will be affecting us here in the Central Plains through Saturday evening before Stout winds begin to back off.
