Tuesday, July 10 Midday Forecast

A few storms possible today, heat continues to crank tomorrow

A few storms possible today, heat continues to crank tomorrow ---

Today will be much like yesterday.

Atmospheric moisture values are high across the Ozarks as we surge moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, and even some linking to Tropical Storm Chris over the Atlantic. A weak upper-level disturbance will tap into this moisture today, bringing the chance for a few showers/ storms.

Wind energy is little to none, so no severe weather is expected. Lightning and locally heavy downpours will be the main hazards today. 

Highs will be hot again, in the lower 90's area-wide. With the oppressive humidity, 93 degrees will feel like 100 degrees in Springfield.

Any storms that pop will collapse by sunset. Tonight will be mostly clear, warm, and muggy with lows only dropping into the middle 70's. 

Tomorrow an area of high pressure scoots into the Ozarks and just sits, trapping heat and humidity in the area through the rest of the week.

Expect mostly sunny skies and hot, humid conditions through the weekend. Highs will be in the middle to upper 90's Wednesday through Monday. With humidity, heat index values will approach 105 degrees daily. A storm or two is also possible daily through Monday thanks to the heat and humidity, however, a cold front trying to nose into the Ozarks by Sunday/ Monday may make that storm chance a bit healthier.

Stay cool, stay hydrated! Drink lots of water. Check on pets, elderly, children -- they are susceptible to heat sickness! Remember, hot cars can be deadly! Look before you lock!
