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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited Hail risk.
  Limited Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Limited Lightning risk.
  Limited Non thunderstorm wind risk.
  Limited Fog risk.

DISCUSSION...

  Patchy fog may be possible across the eastern Ozarks this
  morning, generally along and south of the Ozark Plateau.

  A cold front will move into the southeast Kansas and western
  Missouri late tonight. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will
  begin to move into the region by 1 to 2 am and then spread
  southeast to a Osage Beach to Springfield to Cassville line by
  7 am. A marginal or limited threat of severe storms is
  expected as the the activity first moves into the outlook area
  with small hail and gusty winds possible with stronger storms.

  South wind gusts of 30 to 35 mph will be possible in southeast
  Kansas and parts of southwest Missouri today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

  The cold front will move through the region on Thursday
  passing off to the south and east by late afternoon. A limited
  or marginal risk for severe storms will be possible as daytime
  instability increases by noon. Hail and strong to severe
  thunderstorm winds will be the main hazards.

  Periods of heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to
  spread into the area from the west late Thursday night and
  Friday and continue through early Saturday before tapering
  off. Widespread 2 to 4 inch storm total rainfall is expected
  with some higher amounts possible. Rainfall of this magnitude
  over a large area has the potential to produce widespread
  flooding of flood prone areas, low water crossings, and poor
  drainage areas.

  A low severe thunderstorm risk exists for far southern
  Missouri on Friday if enough instability can develop.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

  Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
