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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

Limited Hail risk.
Limited Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
Limited Flooding risk.
Significant Lightning risk.


Scattered showers and thunderstorms will impact far southern
Missouri generally south Highway 60 the remainder of this
afternoon. A localized strong to marginally severe storm will be
possible with the strongest storms capable of producing hail to
the size of nickels and wind gust to 50 mph.

After activity diminishes this evening, showers and thunderstorms
will spread back over far southern Missouri and extreme
southeastern Kansas late tonight. This activity could produce
heavy rainfall which may result in localized flooding.

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

Periods of heavy showers and a few thunderstorms will impact the
outlook area Friday and Friday night before tapering off Saturday.
Storm total rainfall will generally range from 2 to 4 inches with
locally higher amounts possible across far southern Missouri.

Rainfall of this magnitude over a large area has the potential to
produce flooding in flood prone and poor drainage areas and low
water crossings. Flooding of larger main stem rivers may also
develop. A Flood Watch is in effect for southern Missouri and far
southeastern Kansas late tonight through Friday night.

There is a limited risk for strong to locally severe storms
Friday across far southern Missouri near the Arkansas border if
enough instability can develop.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
