What a happy day! The Ozarks desperately needed rain, and we saw widespread, heavy rain over the past 2 days. Rain amounts were generally in the 1 to 3″ range, but quite a few spots topped the 3″ mark. A few of our weather watchers reported between 4 and 5″ near Lebanon, MO.

Springfield recorded just over 3″, the biggest 2-day total since early May. The fall soaker certainly put a dent in the drought, but we could still use some rain.

There is another storm on the horizon, but that will hold off until the weekend. For the remainder of the week, we can expect cool and quiet weather.

The weekend storm will bring clouds and some showery weather to the Ozarks but will move out in time for Halloween.
