Severe Weather Expected Later Today

The National Weather Service in Springfield, MO is calling for the development of severe weather later today. Wind gusts of 60MPH and embedded tornadoes are possible with the line as it develops early this evening. The showers and thunderstorms during the early part of the day should remain below severe limits.

These risks later today include:
  • Limited tornado risk
  • Limited hail risk
  • Elevated thunderstorm wind damage risk
  • Elevated flooding risk
  • Significant lightning risk
** The Storm Prediction Center site appears to be down at this time. But the last indication was a slight risk box up through Arkansas and covering most of Missouri and eastern Kansas and Oklahoma.

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.
