A cool front is in Kansas early today. This front will make slow but steady progress into Missouri by later today. It is the reason that showers and storms will be on the increase over the Ozarks later today and early on Wednesday.
Rain chances look healthy with 1-2″ totals common over the area. I’m forecasting the heaviest rain potential for areas just east of Springfield.
Today’s front will be backed up by another on Friday which will keep our temperatures very comfortable through the weekend.
Except for today, I think highs will stay in the seventies for the remainder of the extended forecast.
Low temperatures will drop close to the upper forties by the weekend.
