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.
Limited Flooding risk.
Significant Lightning risk.


Scattered showers and thunderstorms will occur today as a cold
front moves through the area. Isolated stronger storms will be
possible this afternoon mainly southeast of I-44. The front will
move south of the area by late afternoon.

The front will stall off to our south tonight as disturbances
approach from the west. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to
move back into western portions of the outlook area overnight
with pockets of heavy rain and some flooding possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Periods of heavy showers and a few thunderstorms will impact the
outlook area Friday and continue through late Friday night before
tapering off. Widespread 2 to 4 inch storm total rainfall is
expected. Rainfall of this magnitude over a large area has the
potential to produce flooding in flood prone areas, low water
crossings, and poor drainage areas. Flooding of larger main stem
rivers may also develop.

A low or marginal threat for strong or locally severe storms
exists across far southern Missouri on Friday if enough
instability can develop.


Because of the overall limited severe storm risk, widespread spotter
activation will not be needed through tonight. Spotters and
emergency managers should monitor forecasts and radar trends
concerning heavy rainfall potential and report any significant
flooding should it develop. .
