Still tracking an area of low pressure with its respective cold front coming in from the west. The area of low pressure is anticipated to shift to the north, and we will be more likely to interact with its cold front moving through the overnight Monday into Tuesday, and portions of Wednesday. Severe weather activity is plausible as we continue to bring in a powerful inflow from the south. This inflow is bringing in very warm, unstable, moist air, which is allowing for a good shot for shower and thunderstorm activity, along with a slight risk for severe weather, which does include an opportunity for tornado and hail development. 

At this point, hail and wind are more likely to develop along the front. Our northern counties from Kansas City northward have a small risk for tornado development and a higher risk for powerful winds above 55 mph, and hail greater than an inch in diameter.  The timing of the storm system is not exact. However, we do ask that everyone stays weather alert overnight Monday night into Tuesday.

As the front passes, temperatures will begin to fall back into the low and mid 70s for daytime highs, with evening lows in the mid and upper 50s. A dryer pattern takes over for the end of our short business week, and a small opportunity for scattered showers and thunderstorms begins again for the upcoming weekend into the beginning of the following work week.
