Strong to severe storms may develop over the Ozarks late this afternoon into the evening. The Storm Prediction Center has our area listed in a slight risk box. The National Weather Service office in Springfield is calling for the biggest chance being north of I-44. Tomorrow there is another chance for severe weather including a chance for isolated tornadoes.

Today's risks include:
  • Tornado Risk: Limited
  • Large Hail Risk: Elevated
  • T-Storm Wind Risk: Elevated
  • Lightning Risk: Elevated
  • Non T-Storm Wind 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.
