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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

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

DISCUSSION...

Areas of showers and thunderstorms will track through the Missouri
Ozarks today and this evening ahead of a slowly moving cold
front. A few strong to severe storms will be possible into this
evening, mainly over south-central Missouri. Damaging wind gusts
over 60 mph and hail to the size of half dollars will be the
primary severe weather hazards. Locally heavy rainfall could also
lead to flooding of small creeks and a few low water crossings.

.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 INFORMATION STATEMENT...

  Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.

along and west of the Mississippi River, a slight risk of severe
thunderstorms further east over West Tennessee and Northeast
Mississippi, and a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms towards
the Tennessee River. The time of greatest threat for severe
thunderstorms will be late this afternoon into early evening west

risk for severe thunderstorms along the I-40 corridor, and
marginal risk for severe thunderstorms across most of North
Mississippi.

Additional severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall is possible
into the upcoming weekend. This heavy rainfall may lead to flash
flooding and river flooding as rainfall totals may reach 4-7
inches with localized amounts up to 9 inches possible, especially
over Northeast Arkansas.

Please continue to monitor the latest forecasts for updates
regarding this severe weather potential into the upcoming weekend.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong to severe storms are forecast today. The chance for
thunderstorms will increase throughout the day and part of
tonight, as an upper storm system and cold front move through the
region. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is expected to
form this afternoon to evening, and move through Arkansas. Damaging
winds and large hail will be the main concerns, but tornadoes
will be possible with any discrete storms that do develop out
ahead of the line of storms, as well as along the leading edge of
the main thunderstorm line. The Storm Prediction Center has placed
much of Arkansas in an Enhanced Risk area, while parts of southern
Arkansas are in a Moderate Risk. Area residents should monitor the
weather closely today. Also, winds will be elevated today and a
lake wind advisory will be in effect.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday Through Tuesday

The potential for severe weather returns again by Friday, as a
warm front lifts northward across Arkansas. Large hail and
damaging winds will once again be the main threats. The potential
for heavy rainfall will also exist, increasing the concern for
flash flooding and river flooding.

The unsettled weather pattern will continue into the weekend. Yet
another storm could produce additional severe weather over the Mid-
South as a new cold front is forecast to move through the region.
Due to forecast uncertainties with this system, please continue to
monitor the latest outlooks from your NWS office.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Spotter activation may be needed today, Friday and Saturday. Please
monitor the latest forecasts over the several few days.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southern
Illinois, southwest Indiana, western Kentucky, and southeast
Missouri.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The development of isolated thunderstorms cannot be ruled out
over southeast Missouri and southwest Illinois through early this
afternoon. Severe weather is not expected with this activity.

Strong to potentially severe thunderstorms are expected to form
along and ahead of a cold front over southeast Missouri by mid to
late afternoon. Initially, storms will be capable of producing
large hail, damaging winds, and an isolated tornado.

A line of thunderstorms should progress into southern Illinois
and far western Kentucky by early evening. Damaging winds will be
the primary concern.

The severe threat will diminish quickly as the storms move east
towards the Wabash River and the Land Between the Lakes by late
evening. Lightning and locally heavy rain will also accompany
thunderstorm activity.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Multiple rounds of thunderstorms are expected Friday through
Sunday. Heavy rainfall is expected over portions of the region.
Please refer to the Hydrologic Outlook for details.

In addition, strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible through
the period. At this time, the best chance of severe storms appears
to be with a warm frontal passage Friday night, in addition to the
cold frontal passage Sunday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will likely be needed by mid to late afternoon
in southeast Missouri, and throughout southern Illinois and the
Purchase Area of western Kentucky by early evening.

Spotters are also encouraged to monitor the latest forecasts for
possible activation over the upcoming weekend.

Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Paducah KY
230 AM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

...Heavy rainfall possible Friday through Sunday...

Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected to move
across the area during this time period. The potential for heavy
rain is highest starting Friday night and continuing through
Sunday evening.

Rainfall amounts and locations are subject to change, but there
has been a fairly consistent signal to focus the heaviest amounts
over portions of southeast Missouri into southwest Illinois. This
area could see 3 to 5 inches with some locally higher amounts
possible. Amounts are expected to be lighter further east over
western Kentucky and southwest Indiana.

There may be a break in the precipitation on Saturday at many
locations as a warm front lifts north out of the region. However,
heavy rainfall chances will increase again Saturday night into
Sunday as a cold front approaches from the west.

The heavy rainfall is expected to cause rises on some area
rivers, particularly the smaller rivers in southeast Missouri such
as the Saint Francis, Black, and Current. Minor to moderate river
flooding is possible.

Confidence is high that heavy rain will fall, but confidence is
lower as to the exact location of the heaviest rainfall. Stay
tuned for later updates or watches concerning this heavy rain
event.
