Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Good morning!  Our lower atmosphere is still fairly dry this morning, but moisture is gradually increasing from the west.  We have a few showers out there now, but I think they'll be quite scattered today as the richer moisture and better lift will be to our west.  You can expect a lot of clouds, however, with highs mainly in the low 70s.  The "zone" for storms will be in eastern Kansas and Oklahoma today and tonight, and some of these could spill across into far western Missouri and Arkansas.  Several inches of rain are expected to our west, but at this point I think the highest flood potential in the Ozarks is near the Kansas and Oklahoma borders.  Thought the flash flood watch includes Springfield, I don't expect that much rain for the city right now.  The storm threat will continue primarily in the western Ozarks overnight to early Sunday, but another round of storms is possible on Sunday.  The storm threat will continue into Memorial Day as well, though we will certainly see some dry periods too.
