Severe Thunderstorms with damaging winds and hail up to one inch are possible across parts of the Ozarks tonight and into the overnight hours. While Branson and Springfield are in the marginal risk area for tonight, areas to the west are in a slight risk for severe weather, including Joplin, Nevada, and parts of Northeast Oklahoma and Southeast Kansas.
Severe weather is also possible on Thursday, mainly south of a Pittsburg, KS to Springfield to West Plains line. There is a chance that a couple of storms could produce some gusty winds and quarter sized hail.
Flash Flooding has become the main concern during this weather event. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued until Friday morning for much of the area. Most areas are predicted to receive between 1-4 inches of rain, with localized areas receiving up to 6 inches. This would cause streams and creeks to rise, causing flooding in low-lying areas and also cause certain roads to close that are prone to flooding.
