Another spring weekend comes to an end, but the warmth will hold on into Monday. Colder, wetter weather will follow.
For tonight, we’ll find drier air filtering in behind a cold front that moved through earlier in the day. Temperatures by morning will drop into the mid 30s with some lower 30s possible, mainly near and east of Springfield.
The week will start off on a nearly perfect note with sunny skies and highs around 70°.
A storm will gather strength Monday night as it approaches the Ozarks. Rain and thunderstorms will sweep through early in the day. Right now, it looks like the threat for strong to severe storms will stay just to the south. Temperatures will fall sharply behind the storm with readings falling into the 30s during the afternoon after early morning temperatures in the 50s. There will likely be some snow showers in the wake of the storm north of Hwy. 60. No accumulations are expected.
Sunny skies will quickly return on Wednesday, but another storm will sweep through on Thursday with a few showers.
Sunshine will once again return on Friday. Temperatures will remain seasonably cool throughout the remainder of the week.
Weekend weather isn’t looking too bad. Another mild spell looks to set in over the weekend. Temperatures on Saturday look to warm into the 60s with highs near 70° possible Sunday. There could be a bout of clouds and possibly a few showers Saturday afternoon. Sunday looks mainly sunny.
