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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

Limited Hail risk.
Limited Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
Limited Flooding risk.
Limited Lightning risk.
Elevated Excessive heat risk.


An outflow boundary will develop scattered storms across central
Missouri and move southward into southern Missouri later this
morning into the afternoon. There may be enough instability and
wind shear for a limited threat for isolated wind gusts up to 60
mph and large hail up to quarter size possible. Abundant moisture
may lead to a heavy rainfall threat with slow moving storms and
very localized minor flooding will be possible.

A combination of afternoon temperatures in the lower 90s and
dewpoints in the middle to upper 70s will create heat index values
of 103 to 108 degrees for extreme southwestern Missouri into
southeast Kansas this afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.

Periodic isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are
expected Monday. Heat index values may reach 100 to 104 across
areas of southeast Kansas into parts of southwest and west
central Missouri.

There will be a better chance for widespread showers and storms
Tuesday and Tuesday night with the passage of a cold front. A few
strong storms will be possible.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
