Strong to Severe Storms Overnight and Tuesday

The Storm Prediction Center has Southern MO, SE KS, Eastern OK and Arkansas in a slight risk box, and the SE portion of the risk area in Arkansas and beyond is a moderate risk.  This is for overnight tonight and tomorrow.  The National Weather Service office in Springfield, MO lists the hazards as:
  • Limited tornado risk
  • Limited thunderstorm wind damage
  • Limited lightning risk
  • Limited non-thunderstorm wind damage
These risk are for the Day 1 outlook.  There is a good chance the Tuesday morning outlook will contain stronger language.  To be clear, for SW MO there will be a risk just after midnight tonight or so, then a bigger risk Tuesday in the late morning hours or noon.  

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.
