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 Lightning risk.


Unsettled conditions will continue to develop over the area
this evening. Warming mid level temperatures will develop a
thermal cap in the atmosphere which will likely keep most
thunderstorm activity from developing until tonight. Coverage
should be isolated in nature with the primary threat being
large hail.

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

Overall...the best chance for strong to severe storms will
occur from Saturday afternoon into Saturday night as the cap
weakens and very strong instability develops ahead of a cold
front which will move through Saturday night.

The main risks will be large hail up to the size of baseballs
and damaging wind in excess of 70 mph. The possibility exists
for a tornado or two as well.

With the risk of severe thunderstorms...frequent lightning and
heavy rainfall will be possible. Localized flooding of low
water crossings may be possible where the heavier rainfall


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
