State is enforcing temporary no-wake rule on entire Lake of the Ozarks

The emergency order, which covers the entire lake, means boats need to operate at idle speed because of the increased risk of damage to docks, boats and shoreline from large wakes from boats.


Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Residual flooding continues across the Ozarks this afternoon so be careful on your evening commute. Thunderstorms are again forming but this time south of Springfield.

Southern Missouri and north Arkansas will be the favored area for storms tonight. A few of these storms could be strong to severe with gusty winds and moderate hail. Heavy rain with localized flooding is also possible with the highest totals pushing 2-4 inches.

This same area will be favored again Friday afternoon and evening. The chance of rain then diminishes but does not disappear for the holiday weekend. A few isolated storms may form in the afternoon and evening but this should not be widespread.

High temperatures for the holiday weekend should not be too bad for this time of year with readings projected in the low to mid 80s. A more active weather pattern resumes next week with what appears to be very heavy rain around Tuesday. Temperatures are forecast to slowly back to the mid 80s with it becoming hot by the end of the week.
