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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

Elevated Tornado risk.
Significant Hail risk.
Significant Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
Elevated Flooding risk.
Significant Lightning risk.


Strong to severe storms will continue to impact the Ozarks
this afternoon into tonight as very strong instability and
wind shear develop ahead of a cold front.

The potential exists for supercell thunderstorms, especially
early this afternoon into this evening as storms initially
begin to develop. If these supercells do form, hail up to the
size of baseballs, damaging winds, and tornadoes will all be

The storms will eventually become more linear in nature and be
capable of producing widespread damaging wind gusts. Gusts
over 75 mph will be possible. Tornadoes will also be possible
with any portions of the line which bow towards the east. This
has the potential to produce power outages.

Along with the risk for severe thunderstorms, frequent
lightning and locally heavy rainfall can be expected. Localized
flooding of low water crossings will be possible where the
heavier rainfall occurs. A Flash Flood Watch has been posted
from this afternoon through 7 AM Sunday. Localized rainfall
amounts of up to 4 inches will be possible if training storms

Those with outdoor plans this afternoon and tonight are urged
to pay close attention to the weather and have a plan in place
to move to a sturdy shelter when severe weather threatens.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

A few lingering strong to severe storms will impact portions of
south central Missouri Sunday morning before the system moves
completely through the region. Large hail and damaging winds
will be the primary concern.

The next chance of storms comes towards the end of next week.


Spotter activation may be needed in the next three hours for
across the entire area.
