Severe Weather Likely Today

The Storm Prediction Center has very far SE KS, E OK, AR and MO in a slight risk box for severe weather. Areas east of 65 are most likely to see any tornadic activity. The Springfield National Weather Service lists the risks as:
  • Limited tornado risk
  • Limited hail risk
  • Elevated thunderstorm wind damage risk
  • Limited flooding risk
  • Significant lightning risk
  • Elevated non-thunderstorm wind risk
The main threat appears to be east of highway 65 today. However, at the time of this blog post, there is currently a tornado warning in NE OK, that if it tracks into MO would track through parts of NW AR, then into Barry, Stone and Christian County. From what I can tell, this is not a current threat or concern for MO, I am only noting it to point out that tornadoes are still possible today in the Ozarks.

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.
