Rain Projection for Monday

Rain Projection for Monday

The rain is slipping more south with time.  Additional rain chances need to be watched for Monday.

After some more areas of flash flooding overnight, the weather will generally be drier over the Ozarks this weekend.

A flash flood emergency was issued for the Conway, MO area as a cluster of rain and storms dumped an estimated 2-3″ of rain in the wee hours of the morning.  Another hard hit area was northern Howell County.

The rain has slipped into northern Arkansas and will continue that trek through the day.

The Ozarks will see a drying out for the rest of today and Sunday as a weak area of high pressure noses its way in.

The next batch of rain will slide in from the northwest on Monday. This looks to be setting up more west and southwest of Springfield.  Areas of extreme southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas will need to watch for heavy rain potential on Monday.

Meanwhile, our cool stretch of weather continues!  All of the days in August have been below normal in Springfield. The streak actually started back on July 24th.  I see no opportunity for an above normal day over the next seven days. In fact, a mid-week cool front will supply us with more seventy-degree days and perhaps some fifty-degree low temperature mornings!
