Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Radar has been showing some light showers over the Ozarks much of the afternoon however I think little is hitting the ground. Unfortunately the rain is set to begin ramping up by Saturday as the next storm takes shape out west. Waves of energy will come rolling across the plains and combine with returning tropical moisture from the gulf. Temperatures will also slowly climb along with the chance for rain.

Saturday looks to be cloudy with scattered storms mainly west of Springfield. Highs are forecast to hit the mid 70s. Sunday there is nearly a 100% chance for rain across the region. This rain may be heavy at times especially west of Springfield and there is a tiny chance for severe weather. Highs Sunday should remain in the mid 70s. Moderate to heavy rain is also possible Monday morning but should then clear out for the rest of the day. Highs Monday may top out around 80 if any peeks of sun can shine through the clouds. Storms are possible again Tuesday before a couple of dry days settle in next week.
