We might want to consider moving the camera out a few inches so we can tilt up some and get more of the sky...but I'll leave that to Todd since that's really his camera...and his building
That will be great for snow fall viewing (Time Laps). And moving it up about 1/4 to 1/2 inch would give you a lot more sky, however you will lose Some of the views of the cars and such (Which you would only really need for snow fall)
Watch that cluster entering NW MO. If we can get some good heating this morning, they could be some big hailers and winds around here later. Or it will all dive south out across central MO..probably more likely.

Looks like we'll get into the mid 80s with dewpoints close to or around 70 before the line plows through. Very warm, almost sauna-like for plenty of moisture. PWATs are gonna be quite high allowing for some torrential rains in addition to some strong to damaging winds and .5 to 1.5" diameter hail within the heaviest parts of the line.
By this weekend with the next system hot on this one's heels, lawns are going to resemble jungles likely exceeding a foot plus for those with fast growing spring/cool season grasses. Mowers are gonna be choking next week. (And this is on the highest cut setting I might add.)

DISCUSSION...LATEST RADAR TRENDS SHOW AN MCS EXTENDING FROM SRN IA SWD INTO CNTRL MO WITH A SHORT BOWING LINE SEGMENT JUST TO THE EAST OF THE KANSAS CITY METRO. THE LINE SEGMENT IS LOCATED ALONG THE NERN EDGE OF MODERATE INSTABILITY NEAR A QUASI-STATIONARY FRONTAL BOUNDARY EXTENDING EAST TO WEST ACROSS NCNTRL MO. A MOIST AIRMASS SOUTH OF THE BOUNDARY EXTENDS EWD INTO SW IL WITH SFC DEWPOINTS IN THE MID 60S F. THIS ALONG WITH MODERATE DEEP-LAYER SHEAR EVIDENT ON THE ST LOUIS AND KANSAS CITY WSR-88D VWPS SHOULD HELP MAINTAIN THE MCS FOR SEVERAL MORE HOURS. THE LATEST HRRR SUGGESTS THAT THE LINE WILL MAINTAIN A BOWING STRUCTURE AND APPROACH THE ST LOUIS AREA IN THE 19 TO 21Z TIMEFRAME. A NEW WW WILL LIKELY NEED TO BE CONSIDERED AS THE LINE MOVES TOWARD THE EDGE OF WW 105.
The line appears to develop with an easterly movement before diving south south east through the metro. Most certainly a wind threat that should be monitored. I would expect a Severe Thunderstorm Watch just along the river and points West by 1pm.

12Z RGEM shows a nasty purple/pink area of intense rainfall rates and possibly some big time hail right smack dab on the metro area in about 4-5 hours. HiRES NAM shows winds sustained at 35-45Kts in the main bow with gusts likely higher then that in the 55-65Kt range. That's high-end tropical storm borderline hurricane (cat 1) strength.
Location: West Belleville (Approximately 1.5 Miles north, northwest of BTHSW, and .5 Mile east of Kmart)
This is looking like a damaging wind event & add some hail to the mix and we could be in for a rough late afternoon and evening
Welcome to the shout box. Just trying this feature out.

MakeitRain: The 12z NAM wants to develop a line of storms through the metro around 1-2pm this afternoon. However, the HRRR is not picking up on this piece. I would not rule out the chance of severe weather as we head into the afternoon.

snowday_lover: I was thinking this was to start late tomorrow night...are we thinking earlier? I'm in Ironton, so I'm not holding my breath for much per the maps that have been drawn up. I'm thinking a little bit of sleet and frz drizzle. Is that correct? It's a balmy 18
