A second round of severe weather to impact Missouri by Monday evening

In a news release announcing the storm talk's postponement, Nichols noted that Shawnee County was under a wind advisory, which was expected to continue through 8 p.m. Monday, and a fire weather watch, which was to continue through Tuesday.

Parts of Arkansas could see severe weather from a storm system that's targeting the central United States.

At this point, it doesn't appear that this weather event will be in the manner or magnitude of what led to last week's Perryville tornado.

As warmer weather begins to move into the area, now is the time to make sure you and your family have a severe weather plan in place.

Shawnee County Emergency Management Director Dusty Nichols says the Storm Talk has been cancelled due to the potential threat for severe weather in the area. Each day during Severe Weather Preparedness Week will focus on a different topic. During a tornado watch, you should remain alert for changing weather conditions and have a way to get those alerts. He suggests practicing what you would do in the event of a tornado.

Tuesday features a statewide tornado drill that goes beyond the normal monthly testing of warning sirens.
