Severe Storms Possible Today

The Storm Prediction Center has much of OK, KS, AR and SW MO in a slight risk box for severe weather today.  The National Weather Service office in Springfield, MO lists the following hazards possible for SE KS and SW MO:
  • Limited tornado risk
  • Elevated hail risk
  • Elevated thunderstorm wind damage risk
  • Limited flooding risk
  • Elevated lightning risk
Scattered storms will move across the area this morning with the main risk being hail.  This afternoon and evening, severe storms are expected to develop.  Sufficient instability and wind shear will bring the risk of supercell development.  At this time, this is not a moderate or high risk situation.  But please pay attention to local forecasts as the weather scenario unfolds.

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.
