Another sunny, summery day today, severe threat returns tomorrow —

We’re starting out warm and sticky this morning with both temperatures and dew points in the 60’s.

High pressure remains in control today giving way to mostly sunny skies, breezy southerly winds, and warm highs. Temperatures soar back into the 80’s today, high of 85 degrees in Springfield will be 10 degrees above average.

Clouds increase tonight, temperatures stay warm and muggy. Lows only drop into the middle 60’s under mostly sunny skies.

A potent storm system sets up to the west on Saturday with a strong cold front approaching the Ozarks. A few thunderstorms will be possible Saturday morning, maybe with the threat of large hail.

By Saturday afternoon/ evening a line of showers/ storms will move through, likely bringing severe weather. 

SLIGHT/ ENHANCED Risks are posted for the Ozarks, highlighting some strong to severe storms for Saturday. In the Enhanced Risk, severe storms could be more numerous, I also think the isolated tornado threat will be higher there.

Main threats with this line will primarily be damaging winds, large hail, and isolated, brief tornadoes.

Flash flooding will also be a concern, the atmosphere is soaked and 1-2″+ rain could fall very quickly. With some rivers/ creeks still swollen from previous rounds of severe weather, be careful around low-water crossings!

Showers/ storms end by Sunday morning as the front pushes to the east. Clouds work to clear in the afternoon with highs in the middle 70’s.

Monday will be warm, mostly sunny, and dry – highs in the upper 80’s.

Another potent storm and associated front rolls through Monday night into Tuesday. Severe weather looks like again with these storms Tuesday afternoon. Stay weather aware! 

Quiet weather returns Wednesday and Thursday next week with highs in the lower 80’s.
