THE HAZARDOUS WEATHER RISK LEVEL IS...SIGNIFICANT WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED... ELEVATED TORNADO RISK. ELEVATED HAIL RISK. SIGNIFICANT THUNDERSTORM WIND DAMAGE RISK. SIGNIFICANT LIGHTNING RISK. DISCUSSION... SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON ALONG AND NORTH OF A WARM FRONT THAT WILL EXTEND FROM JUST NORTH OF A LINE FROM FORT SCOTT KANSAS TO OSCEOLA AND VERSAILLES IN MISSOURI. THE PRIMARY SEVERE WEATHER RISK WILL BE LARGE HAIL...HOWEVER STORMS THAT ARE ABLE TO DEVELOP JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THE WARM FRONT WILL POSE A DAMAGING WIND RISK AND A LIMITED...ISOLATED TORNADO RISK. ANOTHER AREA OF THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT IS EXPECTED DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON HOURS FROM CENTRAL ARKANSAS INTO SOUTHEAST MISSOURI...POTENTIALLY CLIPPING SOUTH CENTRAL MISSOURI. STORM MODE WITH THIS ACTIVITY WILL BE SUPERCELLS...POSING A RISK OF LARGE HAIL... DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND ELEVATED RISK FOR TORNADOES.

Yes I am in Missouri and I am ready. I have flashlights,batteries,crank powered radio, battery operated TV and charged cell phone. My apartment is on the walk out basement level so I will just go into the bathroom. My gf said if it gets too bad tonight we should sleep in the bathroom.(lol). It is about 40 degrees what I am wondering is are they anticpiating a warm up? 40 degrees typically does not produce severe thundertsorms or tornados. We are under a severe thunderstorm watch.
I am also charging up my video camera to get some video of the severe weather. I have been in so many tornado warnings and severe weather that while I am scared I am used to it. It does seem the storms last year were more voilent though.edit on 27-2-2011 by dreamseeker because: (no reason given)

mid. jan. tornadoes all over, they were small thank God..
Not much you can do for a tornado except watch for
funnel clouds and stay down....
Good luck, BE safe!!
