The area of moderate to heavy rain is going to shift southwest tonight closer to Springfield. A few evening showers are possible with the heavier rain developing later tonight. This rain will also train from northwest to southeast allowing for a band of very heavy rain.

Rain totals will generally run in the one to two inch range with local spots of 3-5 inches possible. This may lead to flooding by the morning commute. Make sure you check local conditions before venturing out. You may have to take an alternate route.

Temperatures will fall to the mid 60s. The morning rain will taper off and shift southeast allowing for some partial afternoon clearing. High temperatures will be quite pleasant running in the mid 70s.

Thursday and Friday look like really pretty days. I think we have a good chance for seeing fog both mornings as we cool into the 50s. The sky should be mostly clear with light winds and of course the very wet conditions. Highs will top out in the low to mid 80s.

Rain then returns for the weekend. Much of Saturday will be nice but storms are forecast to erupt in the evening. I am not yet sold on a location but I do think there may be some minor severe weather. Highs should reach the mid 80s.

Lingering showers and clouds Sunday will keep thinks cooler with a reading of about 80 degrees. The pretty weather then returns to kick off the following week.
