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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Limited lightning risk.
  Elevated non thunderstorm wind risk.
  Limited snow and sleet risk.
  Extreme fire weather risk.

DISCUSSION...

Very warm temperatures, low Rh values in the 20-25% range, and
gusty southwesterly winds at 40-50 mph will create a significant
to extreme fire risk today, especially toward the MO/KS border.
Dewpoints appear to be drier than forecast just west of here, so
there is a scenario where RHs decrease below 20%. Additionally,
there is a 20-40% chance that winds gust to 50+ mph. As such, a
Red Flag Warning and a Wind Advisory will be in effect today from
9 AM to 9 PM for most of central Missouri. Burning is strongly
discouraged.

Thunderstorm chances also return this evening. For areas east of
Highway 5, there is a marginal (1/5; 5%) risk for severe weather
with Dent/Shannon/Oregon counties in a slight (2/5; 15%) risk.
The most likely scenario for severe weather is for a quick line of
showers/thunderstorms to form along the cold front after 7 PM and
move SE across our eastern forecast area. Damaging winds and
small hail appear to be the greatest threats. Most locations are
expected to stay dry as thunderstorms will struggle to remain
established in the dry airmass.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Another elevated to significant fire risk day will occur on
Wednesday and Thursday due to continued dry air and gusty winds.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

  Spotter activation may be needed later today or tonight for
the eastern Ozarks.
