Some of the area really got soaked last night. Anderson in McDonald County reported nearly 6″ of rainfall! Springfield has officially measured 0.65″ of rainfall over the past 24-hours.
Afternoon sunshine pushed temperatures into the 70s in much of the area.
Tonight should be dry for most with temperatures in the low 60s and Thursday will be partly sunny and mostly dry. Highs Thursday afternoon will reach the low 80s. Rain chances go up again late Thursday into Friday morning as another rain trigger moves across the Ozarks.
There are daily chances for rain through at least Sunday with no day a washout. Much of Friday looks partly sunny and quiet. There may be a few showers early and again later in the afternoon as temperatures climb to near 80°.
We’ll cap off the wetter stretch of weather with a risk for widespread rain and thunderstorms late Saturday night into Sunday morning. The risk for severe weather remains on the lower end, but can’t be ruled out.
There’s some uncertainty with how slow the storm will track through the region and this may lead to shower chances lingering into Monday. A drier pattern should take hold Tuesday into Wednesday. Temperatures should have more of a fall feel too.
