A strong cold front will move very quickly through the outlook
area from 5 pm to 11 pm. A narrow band of scattered thunderstorms
is expected to develop along the front. While the storms may be
short lived, large hail up to two inches in diameter and damaging
winds will be possible. The best chances for the scattered storms
will be east of Missouri Highway 5, but isolated activity is
possible as far west as Interstate 49.

Dry and hot conditions today with increasing winds late in the

Cold temperatures behind the front will make a frost or light
freeze possible late Thursday night into Friday morning. Another
push of cold air next week will increase frost and freeze
potential Monday night into Tuesday.

Gusty northwest winds and a dry air mass will produce an elevated
fire danger for much of the area Thursday.
