Warmer and mostly sunny today, tracking two fronts this week —

A front is sitting just to our north this morning, it will track through the Ozarks dry today, just shifting winds from the south to the west. Lower-levels of the atmosphere are just too dry to pop any rain. In fact, we’ll keep mostly sunny skies this afternoon!

As winds shift from the south to the west, we’ll pull in a warmer air mass into the Ozarks, highs make it to average if not a bit warmer in the low to middle 60’s.

Not as chilly tonight – we’ll have lows in the 40’s under partly cloudy skies.

Tomorrow we’ll have southerly winds and clouds increase all day ahead of our next cold front. Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with south winds gusting near 30 mph. South winds usher in a warmer air mass, highs approach 70 degrees.

Showers/ storms arrive on the overnight as the low-pressure center ejects out of the southwest. We’ll keep scattered showers/ storms on Thursday as the front moves through.

The low-pressure center tracks right to the south of the Ozarks, bringing the severe threat to central Arkansas, a Marginal Risk barely makes it to northern Arkansas. For now, it looks like the fuel, or instability, for strong/ severe storms stays tucked to our south. It is likely we are too far north for severe storms this time around.

Temperatures stay warm behind the front, totally cut-off from a source of cold air. Highs will soar back into the upper 60’s on Friday with couple clouds.

Our next cold front comes through this weekend. There are still timing discrepancies, for now, showers look possible late Saturday into early Sunday.

Some data hints that we could stay unsettled through Monday of next week. Despite clouds and rain chances, temperatures stay warm in the upper 60’s, lower 70’s.
