Severe Weather Moves Through Northeast Missouri!
A storm system moved from the northern plains-upper midwest region southeast across northeast into eastern Missouri Sunday night.  The storms quickly became supercellular across the region during the evening hours.  The strength of rotation within these supercell thunderstorms prompted the issuance of tornado warnings from western Putnam county, southeast to Macon county.  While no reports of tornadoes were received, numerous reports of very large hail up to 5 inches in diameter and occasional wind gusts over 60 mph were received.  The storms also contained several rounds of heavy rainfall.  Many locations from north central Missouri southeast toward central and east central Missouri received more than 2 to 3 inches of rain. 

The image on the left shows the strong supercell thunderstorm which produced large hail up to 5 inches in diameter.  The image on the right shows storm total rainfall amounts.
