Wow, what a warm afternoon in the Ozarks! We set a new record high temperature in Springfield at 73 degrees with plenty of sunshine and a breezy SW wind. A cold front is on the way and will move through the area tonight. This front will not bring us any rain, but a wind shift will cool the temperatures a bit as we head into Saturday and Sunday. You can expect more sun with highs in the low 60s both days.
Warmer air is again expected on Monday and Tuesday when highs will climb into the low 70s again. Fire danger will be high with the dry ground and gusty winds so no open burning. There is only one small chance for rain in the 7-day forecast. It will arrived on Wednesday, but don't expect much. Looks like we will just see a few showers before finishing the week dry again.
