Meteorologist Gene Hatch with the National Weather Service office in Springfield says a fairly strong storm system is currently moving across the Plains producing some pretty significant winter weather across the northern Plains and back towards Colorado. He says that will move across the Ozarks this evening, overnight and into tomorrow…
"That'll bring a cold front across the area that'll bring the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms with the potential of bringing strong damaging straight line winds and large hail. There is the potential there that we may also see a few tornadoes with that as well," he said.
According to Hatch, at this point the Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk for tornadoes across the Missouri Ozarks late tonight into tomorrow. Hatch says currently it’s looking like straight line winds and hail will be the primary threat.
He expects storms to begin moving in after sunset and continue through tomorrow…
"This front is going to be moving fairly slow overnight, and we will still have the potential to see some severe weather across at least the eastern portion of the Ozarks east of Springfield for Wednesday," he said.
Hatch says we could see some flooding with the storms. An inch to an inch and a half of rain is possible, which he says could lead to some localized flooding.
