Strong to Severe Storms Possible in Northern Ozarks Wednesday Afternoon and Evening

We have the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms for parts of the Ozarks from Wednesday afternoon into the evening hours.

The National Weather Service says the primary hazards will be damaging wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour and hail the size of ping pong balls.

The highest threat area is west central and central Missouri along and north of a line from Nevada to Rolla.

Parts of central Missouri have already had storms move through late Wednesday morning, with lightning, heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds.

Portions of Morgan and Benton Counties were under a severe thunderstorm warning during the 10 a.m. hour with the potential for 60 miles per hour winds and nickel size hail.
