Severe threat ended, but Flash Flood Watch remains to southeast —
FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect until 7 PM for parts of southcentral Missouri and northcentral Arkansas. There, stalled thunderstorms could drop 1-3″ rain, causing localized flash flooding. In the event of standing water, turn around, don’t drown!
Our severe threat has diminished this morning as our front pushes eastward. Showers linger before noon and push east later today. Again, locally heavy rain is possible southeast.
Clouds linger with gusty north winds on the backside of the front. Northerly gusts to 30 mph will usher in a much cooler air mass. Temperatures will hold steady in the middle 50’s this afternoon.
Clouds hang on tonight with cooler lows in the 40’s.
Sunshine returns tomorrow. North winds remain steady, keeping us cool with highs in the upper 50’s and lower 60’s.
Southerly winds return by the weekend as a ridge of high pressure (warm, dry pattern) moves into the Ozarks. Expect sunshine and 70’s through Easter Sunday!
Our next system brings showers/ storms by Monday and could linger into Wednesday of next week. Highs stay warm in the lower 70’s.
