Spotty storms possible again today, otherwise warm & sticky —
Our warm front is still draped across the northeast portions of the Ozarks. This will be the focus for spotty storms possible again this afternoon.
We have another Marginal Severe Risk, meaning one or two of these storms could be strong to severe mainly for the threat of large, quarter-size hail. Damaging winds to 60 mph are also possible. This threat is healthiest to the southeast of Springfield, but still low.
Highs today will be warm on steady westerly winds, highs make it into the low to middle 80’s with sticky dew points in the 60’s.
Tonight a spotty storm will be possible as the front exits. Lows stay warm in the 60’s.
Tomorrow a ridge of high pressure, or warm, dry pattern, fills into the Ozarks bringing mostly sunny skies and dry conditions. Highs will be WARM in the middle and upper 80’s, feeling sticky with dew points in the 60’s.
Friday will be warm and breezy, southerly winds gust to 25 mph, pushing highs into the middle and upper 80’s again.
By Saturday a strong cold front sets up to the west. It looks like we’ll stay dry all day with mostly sunny skies and warm lower 80’s. By the evening and overnight storms push into the Ozarks from the west. We may have to monitor a severe potential with these storms.
Showers linger by Sunday morning with drier conditions Sunday afternoon. Highs stay above average in the upper 70’s.
The pattern continues to stay stormy Monday and Tuesday with another potent storm developing. Scattered showers/ storms look like a good bet, the severe potential will need to be monitored. Highs stay warm in the lower 80’s.
