AVERAGE YESTERDAY, ABOVE TODAY
Today is the beginning of a stretch of warm days that will last through much of the workweek. Springfield's temperatures were exactly average yesterday with a low of 23 degrees and high of 44 degrees (it seems like that doesn't happen often). Afternoon highs are likely to be about 10 degrees warmer today than yesterday with mainly sunny skies and breezy southwesterly winds.
Lows tonight will drop into the mid 30s before the warmest day of the week which will be tomorrow. Both Monday and Tuesday could have temperatures in the low 60s but in order to get there it will be windy.
LIGHT RAIN POSSIBLE TUESDAY
Surface high pressure is going to be located in the southeastern United States with low pressure developing west of the Ozarks. That set up will allow moisture to increase in the lower atmosphere so more clouds are expected late Monday and on Tuesday. Light rain showers are possible on Tuesday as a cold front enhances lifting over the area. That system will pass to the east with another one quickly on its heels.
MORE LIGHT PRECIPITATION, COOLER
Light rain is possible again on Thursday but temperatures will still be warm at that point. A stronger system is expected to arrive by Friday and bring some cooler air along with a chance for precipitation. Long range computer models have been fairly inconsistent with the late week system. The latest run is warmer than the previous run so we'll have to continue to monitor the changes closely through the week.
