This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Missouri...southeast Kansas...southwest Missouri...south central
Missouri...west central Missouri and east central Missouri.

.DAY ONE...Early this Morning through Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited lightning risk.
  Elevated non thunderstorm wind risk.

DISCUSSION...

Strong and gusty southerly winds will occur over southeastern
Kansas and western Missouri this morning. Sustained winds of 25
to 35 mph with gusts up to around 45 mph are expected in many
locations. Winds will gradually weaken by this afternoon, but
will remain breezy into tonight. A Wind Advisory is in effect for
southeastern Kansas and the western Missouri Ozarks until noon
today.

Scattered showers and a few storms will develop and affect the
area at times from early this morning into tonight. Severe
weather is not expected at this time but small hail will be
possible with a few of the storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

A few thunderstorms will remain possible at times Tuesday ahead
of an approaching cold front. Locally heavy rainfall is expected
to develop along the slow moving front, bringing 1 to 3 inches of
rainfall with isolated heavier amounts possible through Tuesday
night. A limited to elevated risk for flooding will occur across
the region Tuesday and Tuesday night.

An additional round of rain may then be possible late in the week
into next weekend. Total rainfall amounts from today through next
weekend of 2 to 6 inches may be possible, but there remains
uncertainty with amounts and timing with the late week/next
weekend system.

A shallow cold air mass will move in behind the cold front
and bring a period of freezing rain to the region Tuesday evening
into Wednesday night. Confidence in ice accumulations of a few
tenths of an inch are increasing, mainly northwest of an Eminence
to Branson line. A brief period of sleet may also be possible
mainly north of I-44 Tuesday night into Wednesday as colder air
moves south into the region.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

  Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
