THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF THE MISSOURI
OZARKS AND EXTREME SOUTHEAST KANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

LIMITED LIGHTNING RISK.
ELEVATED NON THUNDERSTORM WIND RISK.
ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER RISK.

DISCUSSION...

ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE TODAY ACROSS
SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS AND EXTREME WESTERN MISSOURI AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM. NO SEVERE WEATHER IS EXPECTED.

STRONG WINDS WILL IMPACT SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS AND THE MISSOURI
OZARKS TODAY WITH WINDS GUSTING UP TO 45 MPH FOR LOCATIONS WEST
OF INTERSTATE 49 AND NORTH OF HIGHWAY 54.

ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR TODAY PRIMARILY
ASSOCIATED WITH THE WINDY CONDITIONS. FIRES IN OPEN GRASSLAND
AREAS WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO QUICKLY GROW AND SPREAD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.

A SLOW MOVING...STRONG STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING THE POTENTIAL
FOR MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION FROM LATE
TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY. A FEW STORMS LATE TUESDAY
NIGHT COULD PRODUCE HAIL TO THE SIZE OF QUARTERS ACROSS
PORTIONS OF EXTREME SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS AND WEST CENTRAL
MISSOURI.

A LIMITED THREAT FOR STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS WILL THEN
CONTINUE INTO THURSDAY NIGHT. HOWEVER...CONFIDENCE IN THE
TIMING AND PLACEMENT OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL FROM
WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY REMAINS HIGHLY UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME.

MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF RAINFALL ARE ALSO LIKELY FROM LATE TUESDAY
NIGHT INTO THURSDAY NIGHT. THERE WILL BE THE POTENTIAL FOR
HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS AND A LIMITED POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING
IN LOCATIONS WHERE MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF THUNDERSTORMS TRACK. AT
THIS TIME...IT APPEARS THAT THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY
RAINFALL MAY SET UP ACROSS NORTHERN AND CENTRAL MISSOURI. AS
IS THE CASE WITH THE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM THREAT...CONFIDENCE
REMAINS LOW AT THIS TIME REGARDING THE POTENTIAL PLACEMENT OF
THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED THROUGH TONIGHT.
