Increasing Clouds Tonight, Severe Risk Wednesday Night —
Today was a BEAUTIFUL, Spring day with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s! Overnight tonight, clouds will increase and temperatures will be warm, in the upper 50’s and lower 60’s.
Wednesday, we will start off the day dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will top off in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s despite the clouds. Our dewpoints will make it into the lower 60’s. Winds will continue to gust out of the south, bringing in our warm, moist, humid airmass. Currently, all of the Ozarks are in a slight risk for severe weather. This means that a few storms could become strong to severe. The timing is mainly through the overnight hours of Wednesday into Thursday morning. If any storms do become strong to severe, the main threat will be large hail, damaging winds, and localized flash flooding. Localized flash flooding cannot be ruled out because the airmass will be saturated enough for showers to squeeze out anywhere between half an inch to an inch and a half. An isolated tornado also cannot be ruled out. The tornado threat is low but not zero, this is something we will continue to monitor. Be sure you have a way to receive warnings through the overnight hours. Temperatures will drop into the middle 50’s.
Thursday, showers, and clouds will linger through the day. Thursday will also be a cooler day with temperatures only topping off in the upper 50’s and lower 60’s Overnight temperatures will drop into the lower 40’s.
Friday, we will see more sunshine but temperatures remain cool, topping off in the lower 60’s. Overnight lows will again drop into the lower 40’s.
Saturday, temperatures rebound and will warm up into the middle 70’s with plenty of sunshine. Overnight lows will drop into the middle 50’s.
Easter Sunday looks great. Temperatures will top off in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s with plenty of sunshine. Showers chances increase overnight and into Monday.
