Scattered showers/ storms possible this afternoon, breezy & warmer —

The system that brought us a rainy, cool day yesterday is continuing to approach the Ozarks. A warm front combined with a low-level jet (strong winds in the lower levels of the atmosphere) is aiding in the development of a few showers/ storms this morning.

This round of storms could bring you a wet morning commute. Lightning and small hail will be possible with these storms. This round should push east and dissipate by mid-morning/ noon. 

By this afternoon, the cold front approaches and we’ll keep those strong, low-level winds. IF storms can break through the cap (an inhibiting factor in thunderstorms development) we’ll have some scattered showers/ storms this afternoon with an isolated severe threat.

IF storms can develop and become strong, our main threat would be for large hail. Areas to the north of I-44 have the healthiest chance of seeing a strong storm.

Otherwise, we’ll keep mostly cloudy skies this afternoon but a breezy, steady south wind will help push temps much warmer than they were yesterday, expect highs in the middle and upper 80’s. 

A storm is possible to the northeast tonight as this entire system exits. Lows will be warmer in the lower 70’s thanks to clouds and a steady south wind.

Summer heat returns tomorrow! A ridge of high pressure, or a warm, dry pattern, builds back into the Ozarks starting tomorrow. Highs pop back into the low to middle 90’s. We’re forecasting 94 degrees for both Saturday and Sunday in Springfield. With the humidity ,it will feel closer to 100 degrees.

We’ll keep mostly sunny skies and hot temperatures in the lower 90’s through Tuesday.

A cold front breaks the heat and brings a chance for showers/ storms by Wednesday and Thursday.
