Rain returns with cooler temperatures this week as a cold front stalls to the south.
A front is slowly edging southeast across Kansas and will push south of I-44 by morning. Clouds will thicken up with showers becoming more likely closer to sunrise, mainly along and north of I-44.
The risk of showers and few thunderstorms will continue through Tuesday along and north of the front. The front will continue to slowly edge south down to about the state line during the afternoon. Temperatures will be cooler north of the front where highs will be in the 60s, 70s are expected south of the front.
The front will continue to be a focus for showers and a few thunderstorms through Wednesday into Thursday. Most of the rain will tend to occur along and north of the front that will stall across Northern Arkansas. The rain will come in waves as weak upper-level storms interact with the stalled front. Although there will be some thunderstorm activity, the severe weather threat looks very limited. That said, there could be a stronger storm or two near the front itself during the afternoon and early evening.
A surge of drier air will work in Thursday afternoon, ending rain chances and bringing sunshine back to the Ozarks.
Friday looks gorgeous with sunny skies and comfortably warm temperatures expected.
Weekend weather looks pretty good right now. There does appear to be a shot at some shower or thunderstorm activity sometime Saturday afternoon into the overnight as a cold front makes a push into the Ozarks. Rain chances don’t look all that high right now though. Temperatures will be warm with highs in the upper 70s.
Sunshine and warm weather is expected into Monday with highs in the low 80s.
