Over the next seven days, a few rounds of rain and storms will visit the Ozarks with decent rains. Temperatures will stay at or below normal for the most part.
This morning’s rain totals were impressive for a portion of the Ozarks. The band of heaviest rain came in from southeast Kansas and made a beeline for Springfield and Greene County. Widespread 2-3″ totals have been reported in Greene County. I inserted a radar estimation of rain as of 4:50 a.m.
The main batch of rain is slipping southeast away from Springfield. It will be capable of producing several inches of rain in its wake. Additional patches of rain can be expected through the day over much of the Ozarks.
We’ll take a break from rain on Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures on these two days will attempt to climb to near normal highs in the upper eighties to near ninety.
More rain batches may affect the Ozarks as early as Thursday night and into Friday.
The additional rain is part of a pattern of enhanced rainfall setting up over the central U.S. starting later this week and lasting into the weekend and beyond. The exact timing of these rain chances is somewhat hard to pin down.
