Daily brief (7/24): Top picks from the Springfield media

Though the next couple of days will be hot and dry, rain looms on the horizon.

Today will be another hot one, with a high of 100. A heat advisory remains in effect for the Ozarks through tomorrow, when the high will hit 98. There’s a 50 percent chance of thunderstorms on Thursday, but the rain will clear out for another hot, dry weekend.

As the drought continues, water companies in Springfield and Joplin are asking customers to conserve water.
