Tropical Depression Cristobal may impact travel in Missouri

JEFFERSON CITY – As Tropical Depression Cristobal moves inland, it continues to lose strength. But the storm is still expected to produce high winds and isolated intense rainfall across the state Monday night into Tuesday.



The Missouri Department of Transportation urges drivers to be aware of rapidly changing weather conditions and to be prepared for flooded roads and the possibility of downed trees and road debris.



“Flash floods can quickly wash away road surfaces and any vehicle attempting to cross them,” said Natalie Roark, state maintenance director. “Floodwaters can be deeper than they appear and can hide such hazards as sharp objects, electrical wires, sewage and chemicals.”



Please, for your own safety and the safety of everyone in your vehicle, take heed of these lifesaving tips:



· Don't drive through flooded areas.

· When you see water over the roadway, assume that the roadway below it is either damaged or destroyed.

· Turn Around! Don’t Drown!

· Steer clear of downed power lines and road debris.

· Wipers on, headlights on! It’s the law.



Heavy rain and localized river crests can cause road conditions to change quickly. Keep up to date on roads in your path by consulting MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map at modot.org, or through MoDOT’s smartphone app, available for iPhone and Android mobile devices.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Missouri
Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

Limited hail risk.
Limited thunderstorm wind damage risk.
Limited lightning risk.
Limited excessive heat risk.

DISCUSSION...

Heat index values in the middle 90s to around 100 degrees will
continue into early this evening near and west of the Highway 65
corridor.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible across south-central
Missouri this afternoon into early this evening. A few storms may
produce locally damaging wind gusts and hail up to the size of
quarters.

Afternoon heat indices of 95 to 105 are expected Saturday with
heat indices of 90 to 100 on Sunday.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Cristobal are expected to track
through the region from Monday night through Tuesday night. While
the exact track of this system is still unclear, it appears that
rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches may occur in its vicinity, with
locally higher amounts possible. If these rainfall amounts
materialize, it would lead to a flooding risk.

Wind gusts over 30 mph will also be possible with this system if
it tracks over the Missouri Ozarks.
