A large storm system is currently centered over Utah. This continues to be a rather large storm with many waves of energy rotating around it. Forecast issues over the next seven days deal with timing each individual wave and its impacts on the Ozarks. I have been surprised by the amount of moisture that has returned so rapidly to the southern plains. This gives me great concern about the possibility of heavy rain and flooding for the Ozarks.
Tonight and Thursday
The first wave of energy has now moved across the Ozarks. A few lingering showers can be found in our eastern counties but by 7pm this area of rain will have moved east. Attention then turns to western Oklahoma where a tornado watch has been issued. The satellite show the next wave of energy is in the process of creating storms in this region. The thunderstorms will eventually track towards the Ozarks and arrive during the morning. Small hail can be expected in the stronger storms but overall severe weather is not a big threat until Friday night or Saturday. Thursday morning storms will eventually break up and dry conditions are forecast for Thursday afternoon and early Friday.
