Your calendar isn’t fooling you. It’s late September and we are still getting those summer-like temperatures across the Ozarks. It’s a shame the pools have closed down for the winter, but thankfully the lakes are still open!
Lake weather on Saturday/Sunday should be nice. Saturday will be slightly warmer and slightly sunnier than Sunday. While the air temperatures are going to be warm, water temperatures will still be a bit on the chilly side of things. Overall a great weekend to possibly head to area lakes before those fall temperatures return.
For the start of your work week, the heat is going to hang around with temperatures in the mid-80s around the Ozarks with sunny skies still shining brightly. As we move into Wednesday, a storm system approaches from the west and will bring us our first fall cold front.
Typically in the fall, the jet stream begins to shift farther south bringing cooler air with it. We will see the first major shift in the jetstream this fall by next Wednesday. We’ll also get a decent rain chance out of it too. Temperatures will be kicked back to the low to mid-70s for the second half of next week, perhaps cooler.
