Hazardous Weather Outlook

Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Springfield MO
1255 PM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

St. Clair-Hickory-Camden-Pulaski-Phelps-Barton-Cedar-Polk-Dallas-
1255 PM CDT Wed Apr 26 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 Flooding risk.
  Elevated Lightning risk.


Areas of showers and isolated embedded thunderstorms will
continue to track east through the Missouri Ozarks this afternoon
spreading out of the area from west to east later this afternoon
into this evening. Cloud to ground lightning strikes will be the
main hazard with any of the storms. Localized flooding of small
creeks and a few low water crossings will also remain possible
this afternoon across south central Missouri from the heavy
rainfall that occurred earlier today.

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

Confidence then continues to increase in the potential for
widespread heavy rainfall from later Friday into the weekend.
With soils nearly saturated, excessive runoff will be likely and
will lead to an increasing risk for flooding. At this time, it
appears that the heaviest axis of rainfall may occur from
northwestern Arkansas through southern Missouri where 3 to 6
inches of rainfall is forecast with locally higher amounts
possible. Widespread flooding will become possible beneath this
axis of heaviest rainfall.

Additionally, there will be a risk for strong to severe
thunderstorms from Friday into Saturday across southern Missouri.

Those with outdoor and travel plans for this upcoming weekend
should pay close attention to the forecast as there is the
potential for multiple weather hazards, including the potential
for widespread flooding.


  Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
