Today the Ozarks will be watching for storm development to the north and west which might slide into the Ozarks as we stay warm and humid.
Outflows from previous areas of showers and storms will be monitored today in a a somewhat messy storm chance situation.
There is a risk of some severe storms with some of these cells later today and tonight, mainly in areas far north and west of Springfield.
Otherwise, the Ozarks will tend to clear up somewhat by later today, allowing our temperatures to rise into the eighties.
The pattern over the rest of the week features a chance for storms backing off a bit on Wednesday and then inching closer to us Thursday and Friday.
On Thursday and Friday, severe storms will again be possible but the details remain somewhat up in the air. During this time, heavier rain will likely begin to set up over somewhere over the Ozarks.
A weekend cold front will put an end to the higher humidity and storm chances.
