.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

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


Afternoon heat indices will top out in the middle to upper 90s,
mainly across western Missouri and southeastern Kansas.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop from
west to east across the outlook area this afternoon. Additional
thunderstorms can then be expected tonight as a cold front moves
southeast through the region.

A few severe thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon and
tonight, mainly to the west and north of a Gainesville to Salem
line. Large hail and damaging winds will be possible with the
strongest storms.

Torrential rainfall can also be expected from these storms due to
high moisture content in the atmosphere. Flash flooding will
therefore be possible in areas where multiple storms move over
the same areas. The highest risk for flash flooding will be across
southeastern Kansas and western Missouri.

Periodic showers and thunderstorms will occur through the
upcoming week and into the weekend.

mainly to the west and north of a Gainesville to Salem line.
