Heat and humidity have dominated the pattern since the beginning of the month, but spring is making a late appearance this week. The jet stream will buckle across the Eastern U.S. this week sending a couple of shots of mild weather south. The first of these arrives tonight.
For tonight, we’ll find a few clouds at times. Humidity levels are already dropping and will get downright pleasant by morning. This will also allow to temperatures to drop to comfortably cool levels with morning lows in the upper 50s to low 60s.
A sunny and mild day will follow with breezy north winds and highs in the mid to upper 70s making for an unusually mild day for June. This is open window weather at it’s finest and it should hang around through Tuesday too.
We’ll start the day Tuesday with morning lows in the 50s with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 70s again. There will likely be a bit more high cloudiness as a weak upper-level storm passes through the area.
A storm will pass through the region on Wednesday, pushing a cold front across the Ozarks early in the day. Showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible early in the day with another batch of showers popping up by mid to late afternoon. Temperatures will remain mild with highs in the 70s.
A cool night will follow with lows Thursday morning in the low 50s. Sunny and mild weather will follow throughout the day with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 70s.
The jet stream pattern will flatten out a bit by the weekend. This will allow warmer and more humid weather to work back north into the Ozarks. The pattern will also be wetter.
It looks like we’ll get through Friday with mostly dry conditions, but skies look mostly cloudy with a few sprinkles possible. Temperatures and humidity levels will be a touch higher by the end of the day.
Saturday into Sunday looks wetter. The pattern is setting up to produce a few waves of showers and thunderstorms over the weekend with a front stalling out near the area. Heavy rain and a risk for stronger storms will be possibilities too.
