A second round of severe weather to impact Missouri by Monday evening


A weather system will move through the Mid-South on Monday and Tuesday, which will cause a high chance for rain and thunderstorms.

Arkansas is expected to get another round of storms Monday night into Tuesday morning. Schools, hospitals, industries, public facilities, and citizens are also encouraged to test their readiness should a tornado or severe weather event actually occur.

Severe Weather Awareness Week kicks off today with an actual possibility of severe weather.

The National Weather Service shared this information on its website Monday about the potential for severe weather in northeast Kansas.

Rain could move into the area by late afternoon, and the severe weather was forecast to hit after 6 p.m. Wind gusts could reach up to 70 miles per hour, and tornadoes are possible.

According to Foster, there are steps you can take to prepare for the possibility of severe weather.

The Annual Tornado Drill is Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 10:00 am. When a tornado warning is issued, seek shelter immediately and stay there until the threat has passed. Learning about and practicing for severe weather ahead of time will help you react quickly when severe weather strikes.
