Sunday, May 12 Overnight Forecast

News

Mother’s Day wasn’t too bad across the Ozarks.  It started cloudy and cool, but we ended up with sun and clouds and mild temperatures.  There were a few pop-up showers too, a few of which even had some lightning and small hail.  The showers are quickly fading with the cooling temperatures this evening, and the rest of the night looks mostly clear and cool.  Temperatures by morning will slip into the middle 40s and there will likely be some patches of fog, some of which could be locally dense.

The early fog on Monday will give way to mostly sunny skies and mild afternoon temperatures in the upper 60s.

The overall set up this week will offer up warmer weather and a chance for some spotty showers and storms Tuesday and Wednesday.  This is a result of a frontal boundary lifting back to the north through the Ozarks.  Weak upper-level storms will move through the northwest flow in the jet stream pattern.  Winds in the atmosphere look pretty light, helping to stifle chances for any severe weather but an isolated strong storm with gusty winds and some hail is certainly possible.

An upper-level ridge will build over the area Thursday and Friday leading to mostly dry and warm weather.  Afternoon highs in the low 80s are likely.

A more unsettled pattern will develop over the weekend as a trough in the jet stream moves back into the Western U.S.  This should bring a stormier pattern back to parts of the midsection of the country.  Stronger storms are more likely in the weekend pattern across the region, but it’s too early to tell whether or not that includes the Ozarks.  At the very least, we’ll see warm temperatures and a chance for some wet weather this weekend, focused around Saturday night into Sunday.
