Despite the tornado watch that is in effect for southeast Missouri, the Elite Spotter Workshop scheduled at 6pm in Cape Girardeau will go on as scheduled, starting at 6pm at the Show Me Center.
A narrow line of storms will approach far southeast Missouri over the next few hours. This line is expected to reach the city of Cape Girardeau by around 430pm...but will move through rather quickly. Heavy downpours are likely with this line of storms and gusty winds and hail will be possible. The worst of storms should be east of the Cape Girardeau area by the time the class begins 6pm. However, people traveling to the class should use caution, as driving conditions will be deteriorating depending on your direction and time of travel.
