NWS in Springfield

Some parts of the Ozarks could be getting some thunderstorms today.

Meteorologist Steve Lindenberg says an intense low pressure in the Texas panhandle will be making its way to Missouri.

The weather service says a dry line is going to form with that low pressure and push quickly across the Ozarks from late this morning to early afternoon.

Meteorologists say while most of storms will remain below severe limits, a strong to severe storm cannot be ruled out east of Gainesville to the Salem line.

Forecasters say there could also be some wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour and could linger into the evening hours and even into the overnight.

The weather service says besides strong winds there could also be hail to the size of quarters and rainfall which could lead to flooding.
