Isolated Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible in the Ozarks Wednesday

The National Weather Service says in addition to heavy rain, some of the storms that are sweeping across southwest Missouri on this Wednesday could contain some wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour.

While the overall severe weather threat is low, an isolated strong to severe storm is possible into the early afternoon hours.

Forecasters say frequent lightning will also be possible with these storms.

The risk for flooding is low on Wednesday, but periods of showers and storms can be expected through Friday, which could lead to some isolated flooding.
