THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF THE MISSOURI
OZARKS AND EXTREME SOUTHEAST KANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

  ELEVATED LIGHTNING RISK.
  LIMITED NON THUNDERSTORM WIND RISK.

DISCUSSION...

  AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM WILL BE POSSIBLE TODAY ACROSS
  EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN MISSOURI. THE MAIN HAZARD WITH ANY
  STORMS WILL BE ISOLATED CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES.

  SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS WILL THEN DEVELOP ACROSS
  EXTREME SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS AND WESTERN MISSOURI LATE
  TONIGHT. CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING WILL BE THE MAIN
  POTENTIAL HAZARD.

  BRISK AND GUSTY SOUTHEAST WINDS WILL DEVELOP LATE TONIGHT
  ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST MISSOURI. GUSTS OVER 30 MPH WILL
  BE LIKELY...ESPECIALLY AROUND THE SPRINGFIELD AREA.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

  BRISK AND GUSTY SOUTHEAST WINDS WILL CONTINUE INTO FRIDAY
  NIGHT ACROSS MUCH OF THE OUTLOOK AREA AS A LOW PRESSURE
  SYSTEM APPROACHES FROM THE WEST.

  MEANWHILE...SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS WILL
  CONTINUE TO SPREAD EAST ACROSS THE OUTLOOK AREA FRIDAY
  MORNING. THE MAIN HAZARD WITH THESE STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO
  BE CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING.

  THERE WILL THEN BE A DECREASE IN THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY BY
  FRIDAY AFTERNOON OVER MOST AREAS BEFORE ADDITIONAL
  THUNDERSTORMS BEGIN TO DEVELOP LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND
  FRIDAY EVENING BACK TOWARDS THE INTERSTATE 35 CORRIDOR IN
  KANSAS...AND POSSIBLY SOUTH INTO OKLAHOMA. ANY
  THUNDERSTORMS THAT DEVELOP WILL THEN TRACK NORTHEAST
  TOWARDS WESTERN MISSOURI FRIDAY EVENING.

  THERE WILL BE AN ELEVATED RISK FOR SEVERE STORMS ACROSS
  EXTREME WESTERN MISSOURI AND SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS FRIDAY
  EVENING...AS WELL AS AREAS OF THE MISSOURI OZARKS NORTH OF
  A BOLIVAR TO ROLLA LINE FROM LATE FRIDAY EVENING INTO THE
  OVERNIGHT PERIOD.

  HAIL UP TO TWO INCHES IN DIAMETER WILL BE THE PRIMARY
  SEVERE WEATHER HAZARD WITH ANY SUPERCELLS THAT TRACK INTO
  THE ELEVATED RISK AREA. WIND GUSTS OVER 60 MPH WILL ALSO
  BE POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY WITH ANY LINE SEGMENTS. ISOLATED
  TORNADOES WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE WITH ANY SUPERCELLS OR
  LINE SEGMENTS.

  MEANWHILE...THE THREAT FOR SEVERE STORMS WILL BE MORE
  LIMITED FRIDAY NIGHT ALONG AND SOUTH OF A BOLIVAR TO
  ROLLA LINE. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT LITTLE IN THE WAY OF
  THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY DEVELOPS ACROSS THIS AREA FOR MUCH
  OF FRIDAY NIGHT. IF ANY STORMS CAN MANAGE TO DEVELOP
  ACROSS THIS AREA...THEY WOULD BE CAPABLE OF ALSO BECOMING
  SEVERE.

  THUNDERSTORMS WILL THEN REMAIN POSSIBLE INTO SATURDAY AS THAT
  LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AND A TRAILING COLD FRONT MOVE THROUGH
  THE OZARKS. THERE WILL BE A CONDITIONAL RISK FOR STRONG TO
  SEVERE STORMS PRIMARILY SOUTH OF THE INTERSTATE 44 CORRIDOR
  IF ENOUGH INSTABILITY CAN DEVELOP AHEAD OF THE FRONT.
  DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND LARGE HAIL WOULD BE THE PRIMARY
  SEVERE WEATHER HAZARDS IF ENOUGH INSTABILITY MATERIALIZES.

  THERE WILL THEN BE ANOTHER SLIGHT CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS
  AGAIN EARLY NEXT WEEK DEPENDING ON THE TRACK OF ANOTHER
  STORM SYSTEM.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

  SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED THROUGH TONIGHT.
