Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Sunshine this afternoon is going to give way to cloud cover later tonight. A weak cool front is pressing in our direction and a few sprinkles are possible Thursday mainly west of Springfield. I do not expect much rain out of this event. The cloud cover though will hold back temperatures with highs in the upper 60s.

Friday through Sunday looks very nice. Sunshine returns and this will push temperatures to the lower 80s. Saturday should be a bit nicer than Sunday as the winds are expected to increase as the next storm approaches for Monday.

Monday’s storms look a bit more robust to me and the chance for rain is much higher than tomorrow’s event. The rain Monday may linger into Tuesday and even Wednesday as the system stalls just south of the Ozarks.
