Tuesday was another beauty with one more on the way Wednesday. This will be the last of the quiet days with wetter, and eventually warmer, weather to follow.

Tonight into Wednesday will feature clear skies, chilly morning low,s and comfortably warm afternoon highs. Given the sunshine, warmer temperatures and light winds, it’s my pick day of the week.

The pattern takes a turn after Wednesday as a frontal boundary sets up to the west. This will lead to a cool and showery day Thursday. A bigger round of rain and thunderstorms will sweep through Thursday night into Friday. Little to no severe weather is expected, but the rain will be heavy in spots. It looks like a band of heavier rain totals is on tap for Southwest Missouri into North Central Arkansas where 1 to 3″ is possible through Friday. This could lead to some limited flooding concerns by Friday morning.

Rain wraps up heading into Friday afternoon. A stalled front will lead to a big range in temperatures with early summer to the southwest and more of a feel of spring to the northeast.

The front will remain a player into the weekend, serving as a focus for a few showers and thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday. No widespread severe weather is expected, but there may be a threat of hail and wind with any stronger storms. A steady south-to-southeast wind will draw warm and humid weather across the Ozarks. Highs Saturday and Sunday will be in the 80s.

A warm and humid pattern will remain into next week. A front in the area and a storm moving through the middle of the country will keep the threat of storms in the forecast as well.
