Some rain for a few fell from the skies yesterday but it didn’t go very far.
A second band of showers and storms developed just west of Springfield during the 6:30-7:30 pm time frame, messing with viewing of a partial solar eclipse. The skies did break enough from Springfield westward to get some good shots of the eclipse as the sun was setting. Here are some shots from around the Ozarks:
High pressure has pushed a cool front through our area and will give us the two coolest days in the forecast in today and Tuesday.
This will give the Ozarks its coolest morning tomorrow morning with some lows in the upper 40’s
Then, beginning on Wednesday, a big warm-up starts that will peak over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
We should reach very close to 90 degrees by Friday and into the nineties by the weekend. I put down a list of record high temperatures which might be threatened during this period. Sunday might be the best chance to break the record as it’s only 88 in the books.
