  WINTER STORM WATCH Seeing similiar trends, I suspect, the National Weather Service offices in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri have issued a WINTER STORM WATCH for parts of the Ozarks... mainly West of US 65.  It does not include Taney County or Branson or Harrison just yet.   As with other types of weather watches (Tornado, Thunderstorm, Flood...), a "watch" simply means "watch out".  The weather mentioned in the bulletin could be developing and headed our way.  But, since it's not here yet..

HARRISON, Ark. - One of America most famous families gets a big welcome to the Ozarks. The Duggar family, stars of the TLC reality show, "Nineteen Kids and Counting," were guests of honor at a ceremony welcoming them to town.  A crew from TLC was on hand to document the event.   Most of the troupe was in town for the special screening at the Lyric Theatre of a new movie they appear in.  Courageous, which opens in September, is a faith-based film by the creators of Fireproof, a 2008 picture starring Kirk Cameron.

GREENE COUNTY -- For the next several days folks in the Walnut Grove area will be picking up the pieces from Friday night's storm. Several trees are uprooted in the Walnut Grove area.  Many tall trees snapped like twigs all caused by the strong winds. Trees blocked parts of major roads like highway Z and BB outside of Walnut Grove. Ralph Noble has lived here for 20 years. "At first it just got dark. The wind just barely blew, but then all at once turned loose.  Then the trees were blowing hardest I have ever seen them blow since we have been out here.  It began to pop," said Noble.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The first line of heavy rain that the Ozarks has seen in weeks packed a punch, with double-digit wind gusts and large hail.  Still, the most visible damage was only branches and leaves whipped off the trees in the wind on Monday night. Video from KY3's tower camera at the station taken just before 5 p.m. Monday shows the lack of visibility.  For the first 20 seconds, it was hard to make out anything on the screen between the sheets of rain and the hail coming down.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The F-3 tornado that tore through the Queen City ON April 29, 1983, killed one person, injured more than a dozen others, and left a lasting impression on thousands of Ozarkers.  It's been three decades since then, but those who survived the storm say their memories of that day are still vivid, making the tragedy seem much more recent. "I was at the bowling alley, Sunshine lanes.  I remember going toward the doors, because we were getting ready to leave, and the sirens were going off, so everybody headed to the basement," said Ashley Mooneyham.

The Salvation Army is responding to help people in need in Joplin... while the local group is also a victim of the tornado. The storm is estimated to have destroyed 8-thousand buildings in Joplin-- including the Salvation Army Thrift Store. The stores are a major source of funding for the efforts of the charity.  Major Norman Grainger joined Ozarks Today to talk about the future of the organization in Joplin.

Pre-thunderstorm clouds on Monday, June 7 caught the attention of weather watchers around the Ozarks and across the Mid-South. The clouds, known as Undulatus Asperatus (meaning roughened or agitated waves), are a new type of cloud being considered for inclusion to the International Cloud Atlas by the World Meteorological Organization. Scientists are trying to determine if a specific set of atmospheric conditions are required for this type of cloud to form.

TODAY 80s Partly cloudy with scattered showers and storms possible. TONIGHT 60s Storms likely south late, dry north. TUESDAY 70s/80s Rain and storms south, dry north. 12-hour forecast 24-hour forecast 7-Day Forecast Pollen Count Satellite & Radar Almanac   Scattered storms have been firing this morning, and this will continue through the afternoon as upper energy moves in from the west.  Temperatures will vary, but will likely be in the low 80s for most of Missouri, and as high as 90 in northern Arkansas where more sun has occurred this morning.  A few severe storms are possible, but heavy rain will continue to be the main threat.  The focus tonight will begin shifting south as a cold front drops in from the north and begins to bring in drier air.  Heavy rain may fall over parts of extreme southern Missouri and northern Arkansas, but the chance will diminish with time on Tuesday.  Several dry days are likely for the end of the week into the weekend.

POSSIBILITY OF A FEW STORMS IN SOUTHERN OZARKS Good evening. A surface cold front has moved into northern Arkansas so many locations around the Ozarks stayed dry today and saw some sunshine. Rain chances do remain in the forecast tonight and tomorrow closer to that front in extreme southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. Atmospheric moisture content has come down a bit with the passage of the front so any rain that does materialize may not be quite as heavy. However, with saturated grounds flooding could be a risk with any rain that does fall tonight or tomorrow.

TODAY Mainly 80s Scattered showers and storms. TONIGHT Near 70° Rain possible, mainly in southern MO/northern AR. SATURDAY Low 80s A good chance of morning rain. 12-hour forecast 24-hour forecast 7-Day Forecast Pollen Count Satellite & Radar Almanac   The rain this morning has focused mainly in central Missouri, though we've had some showers over parts of southern Missouri and northern Arkansas too.  Amounts have been reported all the way to 2.25" in Cross Timbers, and some low-lying areas are flooding again.  To the south the sun is trying to come out in spots, and this will likely cause some storms to redevelop this afternoon.  A front is still sitting just to the south of the viewing area, and this could continue the chance of rain--some of it heavy--over the southern Ozarks tonight into early Saturday.  Right now it looks as though Sunday could be a bit drier as a whole, but the unsettled pattern will likely continue into about the middle of next week.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- All eyes on the skies. The Ozarks next rainmaker has already started dropping rainfall on the western edge of the area in the 7:00 a.m. hour.  Much like Thursday, the rain will spread over the region, ending by the afternoon.  Storms have a chance to fire up again in the afternoon and evening hours.  Flash flooding remains a possibility in already hit communities. There remains some uncertainty about Friday night into Saturday morning.  Stay tuned to ky3.com or the KY3 Weather App for the latest track of interactive radar and forecasts from the KY3 Storm Team meteorologists.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A strong line of storms gave much of the Ozarks an early wake-up call Saturday morning. Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for many Ozarks counties throughout the morning.  We have received reports of up to five inches of rain in spots, including near Marshfield.  There are homeowners reporting trees down in their yards. The Ozarks remains under a flood watch through Monday.
