123 PM CDT Sat Apr 29 2017

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 Tornado risk.
  Elevated Hail risk.
  Elevated Thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Significant Flooding risk.
  Significant Lightning risk.

DISCUSSION...

Multiple rounds of thunderstorms with heavy rain will continue to impact
the outlook area today through tonight. Torrential rainfall will
continue to train from southwest to northeast across the area
which will cause significant flooding to occur.

There is an elevated risk for strong to severe storms generally
along southeast of Interstate 44. The strongest storms will be
capable of producing large hail to the size of golf balls, wind
gusts in excess of 60 mph and perhaps an isolated tornado.

Flash flooding will be likely, especially south of a Pittsburg
Kansas to Lake of the Ozarks line as additional waves of
thunderstorms with heavy rain will impact the area through
tonight. Additional rainfall amounts of two to four inches of
rainfall with embedded higher amounts will be possible. This will
lead to extensive flash flooding and moderate to major flooding on
most of the rivers and streams in the area. Some record crest
levels are even expected.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the entire outlook area
through Sunday.

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

Residual flooding will continue Sunday through at least the first
half of the workweek next week.

There will be an additional risk for showers and a few
thunderstorms by mid week next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed this afternoon and evening across
south central Missouri.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* The Missouri Ozarks and far southeastern Kansas.

* Through Sunday evening

* Periods of showers and thunderstorms producing torrential
  rainfall will occur today through Sunday. Widespread event
  rainfall amounts from 3 to 6 inches are expected, with localized
  amounts up to 8 inches possible. The highest rainfall amounts
  will occur across far southern Missouri with lighter amounts
  toward central Missouri. Intense rainfall rates will quickly
  lead to flash flooding.

* With soils already saturated as well as streams and rivers
  running high, the potential for significant flooding is becoming
  more likely. Flooding of streams, rivers, and low water
  crossings could last for several days after the rain ends. Areas
  that don`t normally flood could flood in this event.

Some main stem rivers that will experience significant rises and
potential flooding include the Elk, Spring, James, Big Piney,
Gasconade, Jacks Fork, Current, Eleven Point, Osage, and Marmaton.
Some river points may reach moderate or major flood stage.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
