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

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Elevated hail risk.
  Elevated thunderstorm wind damage risk.
  Elevated flooding risk.
  Significant lightning risk.


  A weakening line of thunderstorms is expected to impact
  portions of extreme southeastern Kansas and western Missouri
  from late this evening into the overnight period. A few
  storms within the line may still be strong enough to produce
  locally damaging wind gusts and perhaps some hail to the
  size of quarters, mainly along and northwest of a Columbus,
  Kansas to Versailles, Missouri line.

  Additionally, brief torrential rainfall and cloud to ground
  lightning can be expected with these storms. Given that
  ground conditions are already saturated, flash flooding will
  be possible late tonight mainly along and west of the
  Interstate 49 corridor.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

  Scattered thunderstorms will be possible at times through
  Sunday night, especially across northern portions of the
  outlook area where a front will stall and then weaken.
  Localized heavy rain will be the main concern.

  A cold front is expected to move into the region with
  increasing chances for severe storms Tuesday and Tuesday night.
  Heavy rainfall will also be possible.

  Some lingering chances for showers and isolated thunderstorms
  will be possible Wednesday.


  Spotter activation may be needed overnight generally near and
  west of the Interstate 49 corridor.
