occur after midnight.

A flood risk also exists for portions of southern Missouri

Severe thunderstorms will be ongoing across southern Missouri
early Thursday morning. All modes of severe weather will be

A brief period of a mix of freezing drizzle, rain, sleet and snow
will be possible across portions of southeast Kansas and western
Missouri Thursday morning. An additional glaze of ice will be
possible.

Residual flooding of small streams, creeks, and low water

Below normal temperatures are expected late in the week with wind

Another round of rain will move across portions of the region
Monday into Tuesday which may bring some additional flooding to
