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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited Tornado risk.
  Elevated Hail risk.
  Elevated Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Significant Lightning risk.


  A few storms will be possible during the day today, mainly
  across far south central Missouri near a surface boundary and
  possibly across far central Missouri near a stationary front.
  Most of the area should remain dry during the day.

  Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop in the southern
  and central plains later in the afternoon and evening,
  eventually pushing northeast into the area by mid to late
  evening. While the storms will likely be decaying in strength
  after moving into the area, a few strong to severe storms may be
  possible west of highway 65, with damaging wind gusts up to 60
  mph and hail to the size of quarters as the main severe weather
  risks. There will be a low end isolated tornado risk as well.

  In addition to the strong to severe storm possibility, heavy
  rain will be likely with the storms as they push across the area
  overnight. Any training of storms may lead to some isolated
  flooding due to the already high water tables from extreme
  flooding earlier in the month. Widespread flooding is not
  expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

  Thunderstorms are expected to linger into Friday, but in a
  diminishing fashion. Another chance of strong to severe
  thunderstorms will develop Friday night as thunderstorms will
  develop to our west again and move into the area, most likely as
  a line of thunderstorms. Damaging winds will be the main severe
  weather risk Friday night, with additional heavy rain.

  The storms should come to an end from Saturday night into
  Sunday morning with storm total rainfall area wide of 1 to 3
  inches. A limited flooding risk will continue into the weekend.

  Additional thunderstorms will return Monday night into Tuesday
  as another quick moving upper level system moves in from the


  Spotter activation may be needed later tonight west of the U.S.
  65 corridor.
