Storms on the Way
A line of tornado producing storms have formed in Oklahoma and Kansas. Tornadoes, tennis ball size hail and winds of 60+ mph have been reported so far. The line of storms is gradually moving east and will not show up in the Ozarks until after dark tonight. Deep moisture is currently lacking but is forecast to thicken around midnight. All modes of severe weather are likely with very large hail and high winds the main threat but tornadoes can not be ruled out especially for counties to the southwest of Springfield. Very heavy rain is also possible with some models predicting as much as three inches for a swath from Fort Leonard Wood to Harrison. Persons in flood prone areas should keep an eye on water levels later tonight and remember NEVER CROSS A FLOODED ROAD, TURN AROUND DON'T DROWN!
