  A COLD FRONT WILL BEGIN TO MOVE SOUTH INTO PORTIONS OF
  SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS AND WEST CENTRAL MISSOURI EARLY THIS
  MORNING. THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG THIS FRONT NEAR
  SUNRISE...THOUGH THE BETTER CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL OCCUR
  AFTER SUNRISE INTO THE MORNING HOURS THURSDAY.

  THUNDERSTORMS WILL PUSH INTO MUCH OF THE OUTLOOK AREA DURING THE
  EARLY AND MIDDLE PORTIONS OF THURSDAY MORNING AS THAT FRONT

  LIGHTNING... WIND GUSTS TO 50 MPH AND BRIEF HEAVY RAINFALL WILL
  BE THE PRIMARY HAZARDS WITH THIS ACTIVITY.

  ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT WILL THEN BE POSSIBLE LATER THURSDAY
  AFTERNOON INTO EARLY THURSDAY EVENING. IF THESE STORMS CAN
  MANAGE TO DEVELOP...WIND SHEAR AND INSTABILITY WILL BE
  SUFFICIENT FOR HAIL TO THE SIZE OF HALF DOLLARS AND WIND GUSTS
  OVER 60 MPH FROM A FEW OF THE STORMS. LOW LEVEL WIND FIELDS MAY
  SUPPORT A LIMITED THREAT FOR AN ISOLATED TORNADO WITH ANY LINE

  ALONG THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY. AGAIN...THE THREAT FOR ANY TORNADOES
  LOOKS LIMITED AT THIS TIME.

  BOUNDARY. A LIMITED TO LOCALLY ELEVATED THREAT FOR SEVERE STORMS
  WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY ACROSS SOUTHERN MISSOURI.
  THERE WILL BE AT LEAST A LIMITED THREAT FOR FLOODING FROM LATER
  THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY MORNING AS HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BECOME
  INCREASINGLY LIKELY ACROSS THE OZARKS. THE THREAT FOR ANY SEVERE
  STORMS AND HEAVY RAINFALL WILL END BY LATE FRIDAY MORNING AS
  THAT FRONT CLEARS THE AREA.

  BEHIND THE FRONT...SUSTAINED NORTH WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH WITH
  GUSTS UP TO 40 MPH CAN BE EXPECTED FRIDAY MORNING AND EARLY
  FRIDAY AFTERNOON. WINDS WILL QUICKLY BEGIN TO DIMINISH LATE IN
  THE AFTERNOON.

  SUNDAY THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.
