Daily brief (3/10): Top picks from the Springfield media

Mostly sunnyThe skies will clear today, and warmer temperatures will follow.

Today’s high will be 49, and winds will keep things a bit nippy today. But tomorrow will be much nicer: sunny, with a high near 65.

Despite the nice weather, you may hear storm sirens at 1:30 p.m. today. Don’t worry; it’s all part of a statewide tornado/severe weather drill.
