Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
1141 PM CDT Sat Jul 15 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Sunday)
Issued at 210 PM CDT Sat Jul 15 2017

Warm conditions continue across the region this afternoon, with
temperatures topping out in the mid 80s to low 90s. Humidity
levels are more variable today, with drier air working its way
south across Mid Missouri and the eastern Ozarks. Further south
and west, dewpoints remain in the low to mid 70s.

A short-lived shower or thunderstorm is possible across the White
River Valley this afternoon, but the vast majority of the area
will remain dry.

Lows tonight will range from the low 60s east to around 70 west.

Sunday looks very similar to today, with highs within a degree or
two of 90 degrees.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday Night through Saturday)
Issued at 210 PM CDT Sat Jul 15 2017

The coming workweek will feature the warmest temperatures of the
summer thus far, with highs solidly reaching the mid 90s area-
wide, with a few areas across Central Missouri approaching the
upper 90s. Heat indices look to be between 98 and 103 degrees each
day, with several days of readings between 105 and 107 during the
heart of the week. A Heat Advisory seems probable for a good
chunk of the area by mid week.

With a strong ridge building overhead through the week,
precipitation chances look quite low through at least the end of
the workweek. By next weekend, the ridge may start to retrograde
back to the west, which could yield a slight increase in
precipitation chances. In general though, the week looks hot and
dry.

Issued at 1139 PM CDT Sat Jul 15 2017

A few pesky showers developed around sunset across far southern MO
and are continuing as of 0430z. Have kept in some VFR cloud cover
and VCSH wording for a couple/few hours from the onset of the 06z
TAFS at BBG. Otherwise, there is still a potential for some MVFR
at BBG towards sunrise. JLN/SGF expected to remain in VFR with all
locations maintaining a light surface wind.
