A chance of rain or thunderstorms remains this morning, but skies should clear by this afternoon, making for a mostly sunny day and a high of 91.
Storms hit across the Ozarks last night, downing trees in Taney County, which experienced some of the heaviest damage (KY3). The Ozark Empire Fair was evacuated because of storms as well (KSPR, OzarksFirst).
Skies should remain clear for the next couple of days, with mid to upper 90s returning. Another chance of rain is on the horizon for Wednesday, though.
