Daily brief (7/1): Top picks from the Springfield media

Another hot, dry day is in store, but a glimmer of hope is on the horizon: A slight chance of thunderstorms enters the forecast tomorrow.

Today’s high is expected to hit 97. Tonight will dip to 71, and tomorrow won’t be quite as hot, with a high of 91. It will be mostly sunny, although a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms enters the forecast. After another break Tuesday, the temperature will spike back up for the Fourth of July holiday.
