Some heavy downpours occurred overnight with areas around Fremont Hills, highway 60 in southeast Greene County and south of Sparta where 1-2 inches of rain fell.
A front combined with an upper level disturbance will keep rain and storms around the Ozarks. On the rain side, a Flash Flood Watch is in effect for much of southwest Missouri today and tonight. I think the potential exists for 1-3″ of rain to fall on average especially in areas north and east of Springfield.
With the severe storm potential, a risk for damaging winds and hail does exist for some of the stronger storms which will slide in from Kansas today. The main threat area is south and west of Springfield.
Temperatures will stay cool today with highs stopping in the middle eighties for most folks.
