There is increasing confidence of a more robust severe weather threat Sunday. An Enhanced Risk (Level 3 out of 5) has already been issued for Missouri, Arkansas, eastern Oklahoma and western Illinois where the severe weather ingredients look to come together the best.

Tornado

There could be some strong tornado formation for areas of Missouri, Illinois and Arkansas later today and tonight.  A tornado threat like this means you will need to have a severe plan in place in case you have to take cover.

EF2 or stronger tornadoes will be possible for cities like St. Louis and Fayetteville.

Damaging Winds

Wind damage will be likely for these areas as well and a chance for wind gusts over 70 mph will be likely.

The latest timing for today’s strong storms will be during the afternoon and evening hours for areas of the Mississippi River Valley.

Another severe threat will be the flooding rains. Areas of Illinois and Indiana could see over 4 inches of rainfall.

You can catch the Central Regional Forecast at :30 past the hour, every hour for these details along with the rest of the top weather headlines.
