Ozarks Weather Expected for the Rest of Summer

Jul 16, 2014

With the spring and summer months comes severe weather season here in the Ozarks. KSMU’s Taylor Vance reports on what conditions to expect for the next several weeks.

As we approach August, the severe storm season in the Ozarks will turn from tornado-producing storms to those that produce isolated damaging winds. The two most common threats for this time of the year are rainfall and lightning.

Steve Runnels, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Springfield, says the tornado producing season is over, but severe weather is still a threat to the Ozarks.
