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

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

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


  Isolated thunderstorms will continue to occur across the area
  early this evening. The best coverage will occur along and west
  of the Interstate 49 corridor, where a few strong storms will
  also be possible early this evening. Heavy downpours and cloud
  to ground lightning will occur with these storms. These storms
  will move slowly and as a result a localized minor flooding
  risk will occur generally along and west of I-49.

  Additional scattered thunderstorms will then be possible late
  tonight across southeastern Kansas and west-central Missouri.
  Cloud to ground lightning will be the main potential hazard
  with these storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

  Scattered thunderstorms will then continue into Friday. A few
  storms may produce strong wind gusts and perhaps some hail up
  to the size of quarters. Locally heavy rainfall and frequent
  lightning can also be expected with storms on Friday.

  Isolated thunderstorms will then be possible on Saturday and
  again around the middle of next week.

  Afternoon heat indices in the middle to upper 90s are expected
  from Saturday through next Wednesday, especially from
  southeastern Kansas into west-central Missouri.
