Wednesday, May 27 Evening Forecast

Weather

Unsettled weather pattern continues across the region as a slow moving storm swirls just southwest of the Ozarks. The storm brought another round of clouds and scattered showers and thunderstorms to the area Wednesday afternoon with pockets of locally heavy rainfall. The slow movement of some of the showers coupled with high levels of moisture in the atmosphere led to a few pockets of excessive rain and flooding. 1 to 3″ of rain fell earlier in the afternoon near Neosho, MO, with some flooding reported.

Showers and thunderstorms spread across Springfield with heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds. The showers quickly faded after sunset. Partial clearing and wet ground conditions along with light winds will lead to fog later tonight. A Dense Fog Advisory has been posted for Southwest Missouri through 9 am Thursday.

DENSE FOG ADVISORY THROUGH 9 AM THURSDAY

It will be a repeat performance on Thursday with a mostly cloudy morning giving way to scattered showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon. Temperatures will again warm into the low to mid 70s. Showers and thunderstorms will once again linger into the evening with a front pressing in from the northwest. Drier air moving in behind the front will bring an end to the wet pattern by Friday morning.

Rainfall totals will be spotty with a general 0.25″ to 1″ expected. Locally higher amounts of 2″ are certainly possible with localized flooding not out of the question.

Patchy early fog and low clouds Friday morning will give way to sunny skies during the morning. Temperatures and humidity levels will be pleasant with highs in the mid 70s.

A long stretch of mainly dry weather will follow well into next week. Dry air near the surface will make for pleasant weekend weather with comfortably cool lows and comfortably warm highs. Skies will be mainly clear, but there could be some clouds at times as pockets of upper-level energy drop in out of the northwest.

The jet stream pattern will keep the dry pattern going over the area well into next week as a ridge develops over the middle of the country. Temperatures will climb under the ridge with highs in the mid 80s Tuesday and Wednesday. Humidity levels will be climbing as well with a muggy feel developing by Tuesday afternoon.
