Gloomy Tuesday conditions came with much cooler temperatures across the area. No 80s could be found with many locations not even warming above 70°. The cloud cover didn’t yield much rain though and Springfield’s wet streak has ended after seven straight days of measurable rainfall.

Rain will be tough to find the next two days and sunshine will make more of an appearance with a mix of sun and clouds the next couple of days. Rain chances won’t be completely zero, but most areas will remain dry. Isolated afternoon showers will tend to focus over Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas.

Expect jacket weather early on both days ahead of comfortably warm afternoon temperatures.

Another cold front and a wave of rain are taking aim at the Ozarks for Friday. The best timing is lining up to be during the daytime Friday for the rain to move in from the west. The thunderstorm risk appears to be minimal with very low storm energy showing up in the Ozarks when the front passes through. This system will help clear the way for a nice weekend.
