Severe weather will be on the increase by Wednesday morning. Large hail, damaging winds and even tornadoes will be possible across the Midwest. This morning the Storm Prediction Center has upgraded the severe weather outlook to an enhanced risk across Missouri. Here in the state, a slight risk of severe weather has been issued for areas south of interstate 80.
The storm system that will bring this severe weather chance is currently on the west coast currently getting its act together. Since this system is still currently developing, this will allow room for error.
By noon on Wednesday, the low will be centered over southeast Nebraska/southwest Iowa. This is when rain will begin to be on the increase. Instability will be lacking with this system, but the strong wind shear will make up for that.
The main threat will be damaging winds, however, a few tornadoes can not be ruled out. As it looks right now, the greatest threat for any tornado potential looks to be across southeast Nebraska, southwest Iowa back through central Missouri.
Rainfall totals will be on the moderate side. The heaviest totals will fall on the northwest side of the low, which will be across northwest Iowa and north central Iowa. This is where over an inch to near two inches of rain will accumulate.
