Isolated storm chances today, warmer and sunshine Friday —

A few spotty showers are possible today, but no everyone will see these showers.  Main rain will occur this afternoon with mainly partly to mostly cloudy skies all day.  Highs will still be above normal, but like yesterday, cooler than records with highs in the lower 80’s.

Storms cannot be ruled out later tonight and clouds continue to linger tonight with warm lows in the lower 60’s.

Tomorrow, a ridge, or warm, dry pattern in the jet stream, starts to nose into the Ozarks. It is weak, meaning the sunshine will be short-lived. Expect mostly sunny skies with warmer highs in the middle and upper 80’s. Southerly winds could be a bit breezy.

Saturday, that warm, dry pattern starts to break down already (remember it was fairly weak), and storm chances return to the Ozarks. Widely scattered storms are possible mainly late on Saturday. Southerly winds will be breezy continuing to bring warm, muggy air into the Ozarks so highs will continue to get into the upper 80’s.

Storm chances continue on Sunday as with highs a bit cooler in the lower to mid 80’s.
The pattern stays unsettled Monday and Tuesday, meaning storm chances continue for most of the area. Highs will be a bit cooler in the lower 80’s.
