Expect a much nicer week ahead compared to last week. Temperatures will be in the 80s for most days this week with quiet weather most days. I said most days, we are looking at some active weather Wednesday that may come with a risk of severe weather.

Overnight tonight will be great in the mid-60s for lows with light winds from the west-northwest. No rain is expected tonight. Tuesday will continue to be nice, although warmer with winds returning from the south. Humidity levels will stay on the low side throughout the day. Similar to Monday morning, there will likely be some morning cloud cover giving way to sunnier skies by afternoon.

A storm system is forecast to pass directly overhead Missouri on Wednesday and will lead to thunderstorms during the day into the evening. There is a risk for severe weather when this system rolls through. The main hazards at this time are strong wind gusts of 60+ mph and flooding. There is a risk for some hail and a low tornado threat given the severe weather ingredients that are on the table. Timing of the storms will likely play a role in how high the severe weather risk is. A widespread, earlier round of storms would likely temper the severe risk for the afternoon and evening.

Wednesday’s storm will help clear out rain chances for Thursday into Friday. Temperatures will also remain near to even slightly below normal through Thursday night. Friday is shaping up to be the steamiest day of the week as hotter air briefly finds its way back into the Ozarks.

An active storm track will remain in the region through the weekend. This will help keep temperatures in check and also supply additional rain chances to the area. Rain chances look to peak Friday night into Saturday morning and then again Sunday night into Monday morning.
