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.
  Locally Elevated Fire weather risk.


  A cold front may trigger a few thunderstorms from late this
  afternoon into this evening across southern Missouri. The
  main potential hazard will be cloud to ground lightning.

  Behind that front, a locally elevated fire danger may
  develop this afternoon north of the Highway 54 corridor.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

  A few thunderstorms will be possible from late Saturday
  night into Sunday morning as a warm front lifts northeast
  through the region. Cloud to ground lightning will be the
  main potential hazard.

  South winds gusting over 30 mph can be expected across
  southeastern Kansas and parts of southwestern Missouri
  Sunday. This could lead to a locally elevated grassland
  fire danger.

  There will be a chance for thunderstorms at times from next
  Monday through Thursday. However, confidence in the timing
  and coverage of thunderstorms remains low at this time.

  Brisk and gusty southerly winds may return to the area
  towards the end of next work week as low pressure begins
  to develop across the Plains.


  Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
