Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
620 AM CDT Sun Jul 16 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 145 AM CDT Sun Jul 16 2017

A few showers were exiting Taney county this morning. Patchy fog
will be possible again early this morning, mainly near lakes,
rivers and valleys. Other than some passing cirrus, it should be
mostly clear Today and Tonight with highs in the lower 90s. Winds
will remain light and variable.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 145 AM CDT Sun Jul 16 2017

A 596dam high will edge closer to the area each day this week.
This will shut off any precip potential and send high temps into
the middle to upper 90s. Have trended temps up a degree or two
given such a strong mid level high which looks to come right over
us on Thursday and Friday, thus these two days will be the
hottest. Heat indicies will range from 100-110 this week with the
highest heat indices Thursday and Friday. Confidence is increasing
that Heat Advisories will be needed by mid week. Those with heat
sensitives, outdoor workers and those without air conditioning
will need to prepare for the heat this week. No precipitation is
expected this week given this regime.

Issued at 615 AM CDT Sun Jul 16 2017
