Scattered severe thunderstorms capable of wind, hail and isolated tornadoes are expected Thursday afternoon and evening, roughly from eastern Kansas into southwestern Iowa. Low pressure ahead of a developing cold front will move from central Kansas into Iowa. Preceding the low will be a warm front which will lift northward into southeastern Nebraska, and Iowa by late afternoon.
Areas of early storms may be ongoing Thursday morning from eastern Kansas into Missouri. As the low pressure moves northeastward across Kansas and toward Iowa, storms are expected by late afternoon near the low and along the trailing cold front. Atmospheric conditions will favor supercells. Tornadoes will be possible with longevity, depending on how quickly the cold front undercuts and/or to what degree storms become linear.
