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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

Limited lightning risk.
Limited non thunderstorm wind risk.
Significant fire weather risk.


Gusty southerly winds will develop late this morning into early
this evening. Gusts over 30 mph can be expected at times,
especially across southeastern Kansas and western Missouri.

The gusty winds will combine with warm and dry conditions this
afternoon to create an elevated to locally significant fire
weather risk. Fires will have the potential to rapidly spread in
these conditions.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible overnight tonight into
early Thursday morning. Cloud to ground lightning strikes will be
the main risk with any storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Gusty southerly winds will occur again on Thursday and Friday.
Gusts near 30 mph will occur at times.

Showers will become more widespread on Thursday, especially north
of Highway 60 as a front stalls across central Missouri. Embedded
thunderstorms will occur at times.

A cold front will sweep through the region later Friday into early
Saturday morning. Thunderstorms will develop along the front. A
few strong to severe storms may be possible. Large hail and
damaging wind gusts would be the primary severe weather risks.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
