VIA NWS - SPRINGFIELD 8:45 P.M. -- August 5, 2017 

Thunderstorms and heavy rain will continue to affect the region tonight. The main areas of concern will be associated with thunderstorms moving south southeast from the Kansas City area into Central Missouri, and with thunderstorms moving into southeastern Kansas and southwestern Missouri from south central Kansas.

These thunderstorms are expected to persist for most of the night, with multiple rounds of heavy rain. Flash flooding will be possible across a large portion of the outlook area, especially those areas that have already seen several inches of rain earlier Saturday.

At this time, the greatest flash flood threat appears to be across Central Missouri, including the greater Truman Lake and Lake of the Ozarks region.

In addition to heavy rain, a few strong thunderstorms are possible across southwestern Missouri and southeastern Kansas. Winds to 50 MPH and hail up to the size of nickels will be possible.

Widespread rainfall will be ongoing Sunday morning with residual flooding likely. A few severe storms will be possible mainly along the Missouri Arkansas border. Large hail and damaging wind gusts will be the primary risks with the stronger thunderstorms.
