This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Missouri
Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

Limited Hail risk.
Limited Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
Elevated Lightning risk.
Limited Non thunderstorm wind risk.


A cold front will move into the southeast Kansas and western
Missouri late tonight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will
begin to move into the region by 1 to 2 am and then spread
southeast to a Osage Beach to Springfield to Cassville line by
7 am. A marginal or limited threat of severe storms is
expected as the the activity first moves into the outlook area
with small hail and gusty winds possible with stronger storms.

South wind gusts of 30 to 35 mph will be possible in southeast
Kansas and Western Missouri today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

The cold front will move through the region on Thursday
passing off to the south and east by late afternoon. A limited
or marginal risk for severe storms will be possible as daytime
instability increases by noon. Hail and strong to severe
thunderstorm winds will be the main hazards.

Periods of heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to
spread into the area from the west late Thursday night and
Friday and continue through early Saturday before tapering
off. Widespread 2 to 4 inch storm total rainfall is expected
with some higher amounts possible. Rainfall of this magnitude
over a large area has the potential to produce widespread
flooding of flood prone areas, low water crossings, and poor
drainage areas.

A low severe thunderstorm risk exists for far southern
Missouri on Friday if enough instability can develop.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
