The Missouri Ozarks could get up to four inches of rain over the next couple of days with localized higher amounts.
According to the National Weather Service, a flash flood watch is in effect through Thursday morning for counties along and south of I-44.
The weather service says isolated strong to severe storms will be possible Wednesday afternoon and evening. The main hazard will be flooding. But the storms could bring frequent lightning, hail up to the size of quarters and damaging winds up to 60 mph.
Meteorologists urge motorists to turn around and don’t drown if they come to a flooded place in the roadway.
