Strong to Severe Storms Late Today and Tonight

The Storm Prediction Center is calling for a slight risk for severe weather over much of MO, KS, OK and NW AR (as well as other portions of the Midwest).  The National Weather Service is forecasting strong to severe storms to move into the western potions of the forecast area (eastern KS counties and western MO counties) late this afternoon and move through the rest of the area through the night time hours.  Damaging wind gusts of 75mph will be the primary risk with these storms.  The list of risks include:
  • Limited tornado risk
  • 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.
