Monthly Climate Summary - July 2015

National Weather Service, Springfield, MO

Monthly Climate Overview

July 2015 was one of the wettest July's on record across the Missouri Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas. Two of our climate stations were in the top 5 wettest July's and all four were in the top 20. Tropical-like moisture remained in place across the area for much of the month with upper level flow allowing for quite a few disturbances to move through the area. Many rounds of heavy rain occurred, which led to flash flooding.
