The Ozarks Could See Isolated Thunderstorms This Afternoon

Isolated thunderstorms moved through the Springfield area overnight, dumping up to two inches of rain in some places.  Ryan Cardell is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Springfield...

"A few areas around Springfield, predominantly on the east side of town, did receive some isolated heavier rainfall amounts on the order of around two inches in some areas.  Points to the west--even on the west side of town--saw little to no rainfall."

Cardell says a similar situation is possible this afternoon where isolated thunderstorms, spotty in nature, could form over the Springfield area...

"There'll be some isolated areas of heavy rainfall and points just within a few miles of those isolated storms may even receive no rain at all."

There's a 20% chance for showers and storms today and tonight and a 30% chance tomorrow.
