Severe Storms Possible Today - 6/16/11

The Storm Prediction Center has almost all of MO, SE KS, NE OK and NW AR in a slight risk box today. The Springfield NWS Office Hazardous Weather Outlook calls for scattered storms to move southeast into the area today. Severe weather potential starts late this morning. There is some uncertainty as to how and where the storms will form.

The risks include:
  • Tornado Risk: Limited
  • Large Hail Risk: Elevated
  • T-Storm Wind Risk: Elevated
  • Lightning Risk: Elevated
  • Excessive Heat Risk: Limited
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.
