Severe Weather Possible Friday 12/26

Updated 12/25/08:
All modes of severe weather are likely to come to light on Friday into Friday night. This includes the possibility of tornadoes, large hail and damaging straight line winds. Gulf moisture flowing into the area underneath a cooled airmass, along with high winds aloft, will create heavy shear. Additionally, very heavy rains will be possible. Keep up to date here.

You should stay tuned to local weather forecasts. Make sure your NOAA All Hazards Radio is on and backed up by battery.

UPDATE: The timing of these storms is late Friday night into Saturday. Of course.

Significant Winter Weather Expected

Freezing rain turning to sleet and snow is expected in
SW MO Sunday into Monday. No one in this area needs to be reminded how
ugly that can be, so please take the time to prepare flashlights,
blankets, water and food. Strong to severe storms cannot be ruled out
Sunday afternoon before the front comes through, however, there is
limited instability, so thelikelihood of severe storms is lower.

Up to date information can be found at the National Weather Service Winter Weather Briefing Page.
