Severe Storms No Longer Expected Tuesday Afternoon and Evening

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to redevelop over the Ozarks Tuesday afternoon and evening, but the National Weather Service says severe weather is no longer expected.

The Storm Prediction Center has removed areas north of I-44 from a “marginal risk” area for damaging winds and large hail.

Forecasters say you should remain aware for lightning Tuesday afternoon and evening, with additional rainfall amounts likely remaining below a half inch.

The weather service says check the forecast before heading out, remain weather aware if you have outdoor plans, and have an umbrella ready.

Heavy rain and some flooding were reported in several areas late Monday night into Tuesday morning, with Cowskin Creek flooding at Highway Y west of Ava and Highway AB closed at Wolf Creek due to flooding northeast of Mansfield.

Some areas of far western Missouri, including Mindenmines in Barton County, reported two inches of rain over a 24 hour period.
