Daily brief (5/5): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today will be mostly sunny and hot, with a high of 86.

It will remain clear tonight, and the biggest full moon of the year will fill the sky as the low dips to 66.

Tomorrow, a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms enters the forecast; otherwise it will be mostly sunny with a high of 88. Rain is likely tomorrow night and Monday.

The rain should help cool temperatures down, with highs returning to the more seasonable 70s next week.
