Strong to Severe Storms Possible Today

Strong to severe storms are possible today.  The Storm Prediction Center has a large portion of MO in a slight risk box for severe weather today, including other states to the east and south.  The National Weather Service in Springfield, MO lists the risks today as:
  • Limited tornado risk
  • Elevated hail risk
  • Elevated thunderstorm wind damage risk 
  • Significant lightning risk
  • Limited non-thunderstorm wind risk
There are storms already developing in the Joplin, MO area, and areas to the north and south of that location.  The Storm Prediction Center is considering a weather watch for the Ozarks at the time of this post.

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.
