...Severe Storms Impact the Region Monday Night...

A thin line of strong to severe thunderstorms impacted extreme southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks Monday night. Several reports of wind damage were received as these storms raced east at nearly 50 mph.

These storms developed along a strong cold front which extended south from a powerful low pressure system centered over the northern Plains. Below is a radar loop of the storms as they pushed across the region overnight. This storm system went on to produce widespread wind damage and even tornadoes across the Ohio Valley on Tuesday.

Here is a map and list of storm reports from extreme Southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks.
