The towering cumulus clouds on the horizon southeast of Wichita represent the Gulf moisture needed for intense thunderstorms to form.
At the same time, this satellite image shows the towering cumulus clouds along the front. The front is nearly stationary now, but will begin moving tomorrow. The front lifting the moist, unstable air will create the severe thunderstorms we are forecasting in the south central states.
In the meantime, here are probabilities of non-severe thunderstorms along the front between 9pm tonight and sunrise.
