Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Springfield MO
610 AM CST Sat Feb 24 2018

St. Clair-Hickory-Camden-Pulaski-Phelps-Barton-Cedar-Polk-Dallas-
610 AM CST Sat Feb 24 2018

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 thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Limited flooding risk.
  Limited lightning risk.
  Elevated fog risk.


  Another round of moderate to locally heavy rainfall will
  spread through the area late this morning into this evening.
  The heaviest rainfall will be across southern Missouri. This
  additional rainfall occurring on already saturated grounds
  will lead to an additional risk for flooding of low water
  crossings and low lying spots, as rises on area creeks,
  streams, and rivers occur.

  Scattered thunderstorms will also develop as a cold front
  moves through the area. A few severe storms will be possible
  this afternoon and evening across primarily south-central
  Missouri. The primary concern with any severe storms will be
  damaging straight line winds. An isolated tornado may also be
  possible but not likely.

  Patchy dense fog may occur in low areas across extreme southern
  Missouri through early morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

  Scattered thunderstorm may be possible again towards the middle
  of next week.


  Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
