It looks like a typical late June forecast of hit or miss showers and warm and humid conditions.  Showers this evening will tend to fade away after sunset, but with upper level energy around an isolated shower can't be ruled out later in the night.  Pockets of upper level energy linger in the region, and will remain triggers for a few showers and thunderstorms on Friday.  The higher rain chances of Friday appear to be east of Hwy. 65, closer to some upper level energy that will be exiting the Ozarks.

The weekend forecast will feature more of the same.  A trough which will help kick out the unsettled weather we're currently dealing with will lead to additional chances for widely scattered shower and thunderstorm activity Saturday and Sunday.  Temperatures will remain close to normal levels with morning lows near 70 and afternoon highs in the upper 80s.

The area looks to be rain free on Monday.  The drier weather will also come with hotter temperatures.  Highs in the low 90s look possible.  90s have been something of a rarity this year so far with only 3 days so far at or above 90.

A front will settle into the area on Tuesday, and is expected to stall over the area for a few days.  A daily chance for showers and thunderstorms will be the result through Thursday. 

Taking a peek over the horizon at the 4th of July Weekend, things don't look too bad.  A few showers and thunderstorms look possible on Friday as the front, mentioned above, washes out.  Saturday and Sunday are looking mainly dry and hotter, two ingredients to good boating weather.  The holiday weekend also looks like the beginning of a sustained period of hotter and drier conditions.  So far summer has taken it easy on the Ozarks, but there's plenty of summer left, and I think we'll be seeing the hotter side of summer soon.
