While severe weather isn’t likely Monday, severe weather is predicted for Tuesday afternoon.

According to Sedalia-Pettis County Emergency Management Agency Director Dave Clippert, Tuesday late afternoon through the evening is the area’s next best chance for severe weather. Pettis County is in an Enhanced Risk, which is a 30 percent chance of severe weather.

“In weather terms 30 percent is a pretty significant risk,” Clippert said via email.

The main risk is high winds of 58 mph or higher and large hail, 1-inch or larger. Clippert added that Pettis County does have a tornado risk, but it is less than the hail and wind risks. courtesy of National Weather Service
