Severe Storms Possible - Monday 4/25/11

The Storm Prediction Center has the Ozarks in a slight risk box for severe weather today. The good news is that the moderate risk box shifted south. The National Weather Service office in Springfield lists the following risks in the Hazardous Weather Outlook:

  • Flooding Risk: Significant to Extreme
  • Tornado Risk: Limited to Elevated
  • Lightning Risk: Significant
  • Hail Risk: Elevated
  • Thunderstorm Wind Risk: Limited to Elevated
These risks are most likely during the afternoon hours, and along and southeast of the Interstate 44 corridor.

You should stay tuned to local weather forecasts. Make sure your NOAA All Hazards Radio is on and backed up by battery. If you don't own a NOAA All Hazards Radio, you should. Click the link for a previous blog post on selecting one.
