Even lovers of summer heat may not care much for the weather to start off this work week!
Today and tomorrow will be hot days. I’m looking for the thermometer to peak in the middle nineties both days in Springfield. Humidity is what is pushing the heat to the levels of caution. Dew points are running in the middle seventies which is on the high end of summertime readings.
The heat index will run between 100 and 105 degrees today with some areas west and northwest of Springfield heading as high as 105 to 108 degrees during the peak of heating this afternoon and early evening.
A cool front will trim these readings back by the middle of the week. This front also has a small shower and thunderstorm potential attached to it late Wednesday.
High temperatures will drop down to the eighties on Thursday and Friday, just in time for the opening of the Ozark Empire Fair!
