Daily brief (7/9): Top picks from the Springfield media

Today will be mostly cloudy, with thunderstorms likely. We’ll also get a break from the heat, as the high will be below 90 for the first time in days; 87 is the expected high.

Storms moved through some areas yesterday as well, with at least three counties experiencing some wind damage.

The clouds will clear by tomorrow. The rest of the week will be mostly sunny, and highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s.
