Our fall teaser will continue into Wednesday before August reality sets back in.

Looking at tonight, wow, a perfect combination is setting up for a cool summer night. Clear skies, dry air and calm winds will all contribute to lows in the 50s across the area. This will be the coolest night since the second week of June.

Cool morning readings Wednesday will give way to a comfortably warm afternoon. A surface high will be positioned to the east by late afternoon with light southerly winds beginning the process of warming temperatures back up. Skies look brighter than Tuesday, but there will be some cloud cover bubbling back up east and southeast of Springfield during the afternoon.

A cold front will approach the area Thursday with winds picking up out of the west. This will draw summer air back into the Ozarks with highs near 90°. The front will sneak through Thursday evening with no rain expected. We’ll only get a glancing shot of the mild air behind the front. Humidity levels will remain low into Friday with warm afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s.

The nice break from the summer heat comes to an end this weekend. Temperatures will spike into the mid to upper 90s this weekend into next week. The heat dome strengthens during this time and may stay strong through next week keeping rain chances near zero through at least the middle of next week.
