...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED ACROSS SOUTHEAST KANSAS AND
THE MISSOURI OZARKS SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT...

A POTENT STORM SYSTEM ACROSS THE HIGH PLAINS REGION WILL AFFECT
SOUTHEAST KANSAS AND THE MISSOURI OZARKS SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT. BY
SUNDAY AFTERNOON...STORMS WILL RAPIDLY DEVELOP ALONG AN ADVANCING DRY LINE
ACROSS EASTERN KANSAS AND WESTERN MISSOURI. THESE WILL CONTINUE
INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING ACROSS
THE MISSOURI OZARKS.

THE POTENTIAL AND CONFIDENCE THAT AN OUTBREAK OF SEVERE STORMS WILL
DEVELOP AND IMPACT THE REGION IS INCREASING...ESPECIALLY FOR
SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT. ANY SEVERE STORMS WILL HAVE THE
CAPABILITY OF PRODUCING LARGE HAIL IN EXCESS OF TWO INCHES IN
DIAMETER. THERE IS A HIGH AMOUNT OF WIND ENERGY PRESENT IN ALL
LAYERS OF THE ATMOSPHERE...SO DAMAGING WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 70
MPH WILL BE A THREAT WITH ANY SEVERE STORMS AS WELL.

ALSO...WINDS WILL BE TURNING AND INCREASING WITH HEIGHT...WHICH
WILL SUPPORT A TORNADO THREAT. THE BETTER DYNAMICS FOR TORNADOES
WILL BE ALONG THE I-49 CORRIDOR OF WESTERN MISSOURI AND WESTWARD
INTO SOUTHEAST KANSAS AS WELL AS ALONG AND SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 60
ACROSS SOUTHERN MISSOURI. AN ISOLATED STRONG TORNADO OR TWO MAY BE
POSSIBLE IN THOSE AREAS DEPENDING ON THE AMOUNT OF INSTABILITY AND
LOW LEVEL ATMOSPHERIC ENERGY LATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON.

NOW IS THE TIME TO REVIEW YOUR SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY RULES.
CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS AND OUTLOOKS FROM YOUR
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY...MAKE SURE
YOU HAVE A PLAN AND ARE PREPARED WHEN A WATCH OR WARNING IS ISSUED
FOR YOUR AREA.
