...Winds 40 mph to locally 45 mph expected through 200 pm CST...

A band of winds, with gusts of 40 to 45 mph, and possibly up to 50
mph are expected to develop quickly along and ahead of a line of
storms currently working through western sections of Southeast
Missouri.

These strong winds will be ahead of a line of showers and
thunderstorms that are expected to develop and move through Carter
and Ripley Counties through 1130 am CST, reaching western Perry
County Missouri by 1130 am CST. The line of storms will likely
move near a Perryville to Poplar Bluff Missouri line by noon, and
a Marion Illinois to Sikeston Missouri line by 1 pm CST.

Although the storms were moving east around 40 mph at this time,
the storms may accelerate even faster as they move through the
remainder of Southeast Missouri into Southwest Illinois.

Damaging winds, hail, and the potential for an isolated brief
tornado may be possible with the line of storms. Higher wind gusts
will be likely with any showers and thunderstorms.

If you have any loose outdoor objects that may cause damage, bring
them indoors. Travelers driving high profile vehicles will likely
experience some difficulty in controlling their vehicle due to
high winds.
