Severe Weather Expected Today

The Storm Prediction Center has MO and AR in a moderate risk box for severe weather today.  There has been quite a bit of talk about an "outbreak" of severe weather today.  The important thing is to have a plan, and pay attention to local weather sources.  The Springfield National Weather Service lists the following hazards expected:

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

Take note, there has been some discussion of hail to the size of tennis balls.

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.
