Hard to top today’s weather. We started the day with temperatures in the 50s, our coolest levels since the second week of June. Afternoon highs were around 80° with abundant sunshine throughout the day. It’s definitely been a fall teaser, but August reality will set back in, especially this weekend.

Another comfy cool night is dialed up with temperatures heading higher Thursday.

Southwest to west winds will strengthen Thursday ahead of a cold front drawing in warmer air across the Ozarks. Skies should largely remain sunny tomorrow morning with increasing high cloudiness by afternoon as the front arrives. The front will sneak through with no rain expected and not much of a change in temperatures behind the front.

Thursday night temperatures will dip into the upper 50s and low 60s and Friday will be slightly below average in the mid to upper 80s thanks to Thursday’s glancing cold front. The hot weather though isn’t gone though and our temperatures will climb into the 90s Saturday through Wednesday of next week as high pressure strengthens over the central United States. The heat dome is back and rain chances are not found over the next 7 days.

The long-range pattern looks hot and mostly dry through the end of the month.
