A strong line of thunderstorms moved through the Ozarks Saturday evening.

While most of the storms did stay below severe limits, there was a radar indicated tornado north of Springfield in Polk County that did damage several barns according to reports to the National Weather Service office in Springfield.

In the Lakes Region, an amateur radio report in an area in far eastern Taney County near the Ozark County Boarder west of Theodosia indicate several trees were down due to gusty winds while winds speeds were reported over 60 mph in an area northeast of that location in Douglas County.

After several days of above normal temperatures, more normal readings will return to the Ozarks with Daytime Highs in the 40’s by Monday.
