A heat advisory kicks in for Springfield and much of the area west and north of town today.
Joplin and areas roughly along I-49 and points west are under a heat warning.
The shower chances are gone now as a dome of warm air in the upper atmosphere build into the area.
This will mean a run of high temperatures back into the 90’s starts today and will run through nearly all of next week.
The humidity is running on the high side too and this combined with hot temperatures will send the heat index values into the 100-108° range during the afternoon and early evening hours today. This will probably be repeated for the next several days.
