Relief from the heat on the first day of summer!

Relief from the heat on the first day of summer! ---

Springfield got some decent rain yesterday for the first time in weeks! 

The front associated with that rain will sag east today. The low pressure spinning to the north will slowly sag south into the Ozarks. 

Because the cold front is east, no severe weather is expected today. We won't have any wind energy or forcing to grow thunderstorms. 

Because the low will exit the Ozarks with us on its backside, rain chances will be spotty. The backside of the storm tends to be the drier one! Expect mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with a few spotty showers, isolated rumbles of thunder. Rain will not be as widespread or heavy as yesterday. Temperatures will be much cooler with highs in the upper 70's and lower 80's.

Any showers should wrap up this evening, we'll be mostly cloudy tonight with lows in the lower 60's.

Tomorrow the low pressure slowly exits east, the Ozarks staying mostly dry and mostly cloudy. Highs will hover the 80-degree mark.

Our next storm system comes through Saturday. Scattered showers and storms are likely Saturday morning. If the atmosphere can recover in the atmosphere and rebuild that fuel, or instability to grow thunderstorms, we could have a threat for severe weather. Stay tuned for updates on that.

Highs will be in the middle 80's.

A few storms could linger on Sunday and Monday with highs continuing to warm and nudge back into the upper 80's.

Another ridge, or hot dry pattern starts to build in by Tuesday and Wednesday. Expect mostly dry and hot conditions with highs back in the lower 90's.
