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

.DAY ONE...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
late this afternoon into tonight as very strong instability
and wind shear remain in place ahead of a surface boundary.

The potential exists for supercell thunderstorms 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 possible.

The storms will eventually become more linear in nature as the
cold pool develops and will become 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 is in effect
through 7 AM Sunday. Localized rainfall amounts of up to 4
inches will be possible if training storms develop.

Those with outdoor plans 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
the entire area.
