Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Good morning! It has been a stormy night over much of the region. This morning training thunderstorms (repeated storms over the same general area) are affecting the southern half of the viewing area, mainly south of Springfield. This will lead to a localized flooding threat, so watch out for the low-water crossings. Severe weather is unlikely at this point, though a few storms may have some gusty winds. The rain should diminish quickly later this morning with decreasing clouds by afternoon. A few storms may try to regenerate this afternoon but I don't expect anything too widespread. The rain will leave a boundary that may be the focus for a few storms again tonight as it lifts back north. Overall I'm not expecting the same scenario as this morning with the rain much more scattered. Only isolated storms are expected on Wednesday with highs back to around 90. Thursday looks like the dry and hot day with highs back in the mid 90s. Another front will arrive late Friday and this will lead to a potentially stormy Friday evening and night. Much cooler air will arrive for the weekend.
