Rain and Wind Next Few Days

Tropical depression Christobal will travel north over the top of the Ozarks tonight and early Tuesday while a second disturbance forms in northern Missouri Tuesday night.

The combined effects will be to bring heavy rains to a good portion of the Ozarks and a fair amount of wind.

“Christobal” will spread 2-4″ of rain which will skew east of Springfield beginning tonight. A flash flood watch has been issued for this area.

Winds with this tropical system could gust over 30 mph as it passes through.

Meanwhile, a fairly potent upper air disturbance will ride in just behind Christobal. It will cause a low pressure area to deepen quickly and pass into northwest Missouri late Tuesday.

With this system, a few severe storms are possible on Tuesday afternoon before it sends a cool front into the area.

Also, winds could gust to over 30 mph before the front and perhaps over 40 mph after the front on Wednesday.
