    ORIGINAL REPORT

    The thunderstorm complex began developing late afternoon and moved into the Lakes Region just after 6:00, causing several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings to be issued including two for the Branson Area. Storm Sirens also sounded in Branson for a time when the potential for strong winds was detected. 

    Reports to the National Weather Service indicated over one inch size hail reported in areas between Branson to Kirbyville with several tree limbs down in areas around Table Rock Dam. 

    While rain amounts varied due to the path of the storms, several areas did receive brief heavy rain. A portion of Dry Crane Creek in northern Stone County went over its banks for a brief time due to the quick burst of rain. Minor street flooding also occurred for a time around Branson. 

    While the storms weakened as they moved south, some areas of northern Arkansas also received brief periods of heavy rain and wind. 

    More rain is in the forecast for today with another extended dry and hot period to begin on Wednesday.
