Damaging winds up to 70 miles per hour will be the biggest severe weather threat across the Ozarks Thursday afternoon into early Thursday night.
The National Weather Service says numerous severe thunderstorms are likely during that time period.
There’s also a threat for large hail and flooding, with the large hail risk greatest in areas west of the Springfield metro area.
Forecasters say there is also a very conditional, low confidence threat for hail larger than golf balls and perhaps tornadoes.
The Storm Prediction Center has much of southwest Missouri in an “enhanced risk” for severe weather on Thursday.
