Scattered storms fired up quickly ahead of a cold front and have gradually moved into the area this evening. No widespread severe weather has occurred but there have been reports of trees down with some of the thunderstorms, especially across Morgan County. The threat of severe weather appears to be winding down now, but stronger storms will still be capable of frequent lightning and gusty winds over 40 mph.

Any rain should clear out of the area near sunrise with sunny skies expected for the bulk of the day. The quiet weather will also come with a more pleasant feel with low humidity and highs in the 80s Wednesday afternoon.

The drier air and clear skies will also lead to cool overnight temperatures with morning lows Thursday in the upper 50s and low 60s.

We stay in the 80s for the rest of the week into the weekend. There will be a round of rain and thunder Friday morning, especially over Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas. The rest of the weekend looks quiet. In fact, it looks like a perfect weekend for camping with dry weather, low humidity, and comfortable temperatures.

Another round of showers and some thunder will impact the area early next week. We can also look forward to more of a fall feel as a mild pattern gets a better foothold across the area, sticking around throughout the upcoming week.
