Region Under Moderate Risk of Severe Weather Today

Fresh on the heels of yesterday's tornado which impacted the Joplin area, the region is once again under a moderate risk of severe weather. Very large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes will be possible in and near the areas above that are outlined in red. This includes all of the Missouri Ozarks.

Additionally, with the recent heavy rains coupled with the amounts forecasted over the next few days, there is a Flash Flood Watch for the region as well.

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.
