Despite the drought, rain moving into the area, beginning sometime throughout the day, will be the start to a rainy weekend in Springfield and that could mean bad news for some area farmers.
Weather forecasts have possible precipitation today, this afternoon and likely this evening with rain continuing after midnight, throughout Saturday and possibly into Sunday.
For some it may be welcomed after the long drought this summer with rain saturating dry fields with several inches or more of rain but it could also be too much in a short period of time.
Plus strong winds could knock over already weak crops.
