Good morning! After receiving some much needed rain Saturday things will dry out for our Sunday. Today will be the best day of the Labor Day weekend to spend some time outdoors despite being a little on the muggy side. Highs will make it into the lower 90s under mostly sunny skies. There’s a very isolated chance for pop-up storms in our eastern counties, but the day will be mostly dry overall. Get outside and enjoy!
Skies stay partly cloudy overnight and into Monday. There farther south you are Monday the longer you’ll stay dry. An upper level disturbance will drag a cold front into northern Missouri by Monday morning sparking up storms out in front of the boundary. These storms will make their way south pushing into our northern counties by the early afternoon. Springfield should stay dry until the evening with places south dry until the early nighttime hours. When the storms do arrive they could be strong. The Storm Prediction Center has portions of our area under a slight risk for severe storms Monday and Monday night. The main risks with any storms will be damaging winds, large hail and heavy rain. If you’re trying to squeeze some outdoor time into your Labor Day it’s best to get it done as early as possible. Temperatures stay in the lower 90s once again Monday.
Scattered storms linger around Tuesday and Wednesday before an upper level ridge takes control of our weather drying us out for Thursday and Friday. Right now it looks like next weekend might be another wet one. Temperatures stay right around average in the upper 80s and lower 90s.
