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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

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


  South winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph will occur
  this afternoon, especially on the plateau around Springfield.
  These gusty winds combined with a warm and dry air mass will
  lead to an elevated fire weather risk across much of the area

  A few thunderstorms will be possible later tonight. Severe
  weather is not expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.

  Windy conditions will continue to affect the region early this
  week as wind gusts up to 40 mph are possible.

  A few thunderstorms will remain possible at times Monday and
  Tuesday. Locally heavy rainfall of 1 to 3 inches with isolated
  heavier amounts will be possible Monday and Tuesday, leading to
  a limited to elevated risk for flooding across the region. An
  additional round of rain may then be possible late in the week
  into next weekend. Total rainfall amounts from tonight 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.

  In addition to the potential for heavy rain and possible
  flooding, a shallow cold air mass will move in behind a cold
  front Tuesday night and will bring the potential for some
  freezing rain and ice accumulations, mainly northwest of an
  Eminence to Branson line. The chance for freezing rain will go
  from Tuesday night into Wednesday night.


  Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
