Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

Elevated Flooding risk.
Elevated Lightning risk.
Limited Non thunderstorm wind risk.


Moderate to heavy rainfall with embedded thunderstorms will

additional rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches possible. The
excessive rainfall will result in an elevated risk of flooding and

areas and low water crossings.

Some wind gusts in excess of 30 mph will be possible, mainly over
western Missouri into extreme southeast Kansas this afternoon and

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
