Daily brief (4/29): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today will be another rain-free day in the Ozarks. It will be sunny but breezy, with a high of 75. Wind gusts could top 30 mph.

Tomorrow will be partly sunny, and a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms moves into the forecast after 1 p.m. That chance will remain through the night into Sunday.

Meanwhile, the break in the rain is allowing lake levels to recede. But the flooding will have a lingering effect on some areas

Today’s picks

  • OzarksFirst [KOLR/KSFX]: Convoy of Hope sending aid to tornado-ravaged Alabama. The Springfield charity has set up a mobile command center in Birmingham, Ala., which was devastated by this week’s storms, to distribute food, water, and other supplies.
  • KY3: Proposed constitutional amendments would alter term limits, petition initiatives. A Missouri House proposal would require signatures from all of Missouri congressional districts, not just six; a Senate proposal would increase the number of years a legislator can serve.
