NEEDED RAINFALL CAME WITH STORM DAMAGE
Good Sunday morning. Strong and severe thunderstorms developed late in the day yesterday near Interstate 44 as a cold front moved into the area. A second batch of storms developed a little further north last night. Most locations throughout southern Missouri and northern Arkansas received between 0.50" to 1.00" of needed rainfall from overnight storms. Here are a few totals as of 8:00 A.M. this morning:
Mountain Home, AR: 1.07"
Monett, MO: 1.04"
Springfield, MO: 0.63"
Harrison, AR: 0.62"
Branson, MO: 0.56"
West Plains, MO: 0.54"
The rain was welcomed but some storms also came with damaging winds. There have been reports of blown over trees, some of which fell on power lines, highways and houses, causing damage.
CLEARING IN AFTERNOON
Some light rain continues early this morning in the southern and southeastern Ozarks. We will start the day with cloud cover and a chance for rain in extreme southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. Clouds are expected to begin to clear late this morning and this afternoon.
MUCH COOLER WEATHER!
Today is going to be much cooler than yesterday when highs reached a record 106 degrees in Springfield. Afternoon sunshine today will allow temperatures to warm to near 90 degrees for the high - a noticeable difference. Lows tonight will cool into the mid 60s.
This week will be cooler than last week with highs in the 90s each day. There is a slight chance for storms on Wednesday as a weak disturbance moves over the area. Thunderstorms will again be possible next Saturday.
