JOPLIN, Mo. -- Temperatures barely edged into the 70's in many places around the Ozarks over the weekend, setting new records in two cities.

The National Weather Services says the high of 70 degrees in Joplin Sunday set a new record low maximum temperature for July 28.  The old record of 77 was set in 1981.

And in West Plains, the high reached 73 on Sunday, breaking the old low maximum temperature record of 76, set in 2004.
