WAVE 3 Weather
John Belski's Blog
Includes Western Kentucky from 2:15AM - 10:00AM EST
Central and southern Missouri squall line with embedded sustained supercells expected to continue east northeastward at about 50 knots. The storms may strengthen as the move beyond the Ozarks and encounter richer boundary layer moisture - precipitable water values 1.50 inches and surface dew points in the upper 50s to lower 60s - spreading rapidly north northeast up the Mississippi Valley. Intense low to mid level wind field with 60-70 knot southwesterly low level jet veering fro 70-80 knot west southwest flow at 500 MB will maintain potential for embedded supercells capable of tornadoes and damaging wind despite time of day. Additional storms may form east of the squall line as strengthening low level jet and large scale ascent associated with potent Nebraska/Iowa vorticity interact with remnant warm front over the region.
