Strong to Severe Storms Today

The National Weather Service reports strong to severe storms will move into SW MO after 1pm today.  Large hail up to half dollar size, damaging wind gusts and lightning are the main threats.  These storms should move out of the eastern Ozarks by 7pm.  The Storm Prediction Center is not showing a tornado risk with these storms, but as always, keep informed.  The threats are listed as:

  • Elevated hail risk
  • Elevated thunderstorm wind damage risk
  • Significant lightning risk

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.
