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

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

Limited Hail risk.
Limited Lightning risk.
Limited Damaging Wind risk.


A weak boundary across southern Missouri will be the focus area
for scattered thunderstorms to possibly develop late evening
into the overnight. There is uncertainty on this development
due to an elevated cap in the atmosphere. Coverage should be
isolated to widely scattered in nature with the primary threat
being large hail up to the size of half dollars possible. There
may be an isolated damaging wind gust up to 60 mph possible
overnight as well.

.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 may be needed late this evening and
overnight across southern Missouri.
