Severe Weather Likely Today

The National Weather Service says that severe weather is likely across Southern and Central Missouri today, primarily this morning. Main threats look to be:

* Destructive straight line winds, possibly as high as 80 mph

* Large hail, possibly to golfball size

* Flash flooding

* Isolated tornadoes

Neighbors to our west across Southeast Kansas and Northeast Oklahoma are under a PDS Severe Thunderstorm Watch. A PDS is different from a regular watch in that it means conditions are favorable for a Particularly Dangerous Situation, such as a wide swath of damaging winds.

Be abreast of the situation this morning and take appropriate precautions as needed!
