Update 7:30 PM: Tornado Watch issuedPosted Tuesday, January 29, 2013, at 7:25 PM
A Tornado Watch is now in effect for Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois. The watch states:
LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER SOUTHERN MO IS EXPECTED TO INTENSIFY DURING THE NEXT FEW HOURS AS THE LOW LEVEL JET BECOMES VERY STRONG AND THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH APPROACHES. DESPITE WEAK INSTABILITY...90KT+ WINDS IN THE LOWEST 3KM COUPLED WITH EXTREME SHEAR VALUES WILL PROMOTE A RISK OF DAMAGING WIND GUSTS IN STRONGER CONVECTIVE ELEMENTS...ALONG WITH A RISK OF ISOLATED EMBEDDED TORNADOES.
