Last night’s rainfall was once again heaviest along and east of Highway 65 with lower amounts if anything in western Missouri where drought is the strongest. A few spots topped 1″, but most areas stayed well under the 1″ mark.
Last night’s front also ushered out the summer heat and humidity setting the stage for a clear and cool night ahead.
Another fine early fall day is on tap for Thursday. Skies will remain bright with a light north breeze and afternoon highs well into the 80s. Our next shot at some rain arrives late Thursday night into Friday morning as a pocket of upper-level storminess slides by. This system doesn’t look like it’s going to bring any widespread rainfall with the rain focused over Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas.
Scattered showers wrap up Friday morning and Friday afternoon will be dry and mostly sunny with temperatures in the mid-80s. Friday night will dip into the upper 50s and low 60s. Sunny conditions stick around through the weekend with temperatures remaining comfortable.
Another chance of rain showers comes Monday into Tuesday of next week. At this time, it looks like this system could provide a more widespread round of rain. We’ll update on how this changes in the coming days. The new week will also come with a truly fall feel with temperatures remaining below normal throughout the week.
