Widely scattered thunderstorms will continue this morning

Additional scattered thunderstorms will then develop from
this afternoon into this evening, especially north of the
U.S. 60 corridor. Some of these storms may become severe,
with hail up to the size of ping pong balls, damaging
wind gusts to 60 mph, and frequent lightning being the
primary potential hazards. The greatest risk for severe

A complex of thunderstorms is then expected to develop late
tonight and shift into portions of central Missouri. There
is a limited risk for hail up to the size of quarters and
damaging wind gusts to 60 mph as these storms shift
southeast across central Missouri. Frequent lightning and
brief heavy rainfall can also be expected with these storms.

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

Thunderstorms may persist into Thursday morning across the
central and eastern Missouri Ozarks with a limited severe
weather risk. Additional thunderstorms may then develop
in the afternoon across portions of the Missouri Ozarks.

More thunderstorms are then expected from later Friday into
Saturday night or early Sunday as a storm system moves
across the region.

Chances for thunderstorms then look low for most of the
outlook area for early next week.


Spotter activation may be needed for this afternoon and
tonight, mainly west of U.S. 65 and north of U.S. 60.
