The heatwave's days are numbered. A storm will bring wetter and cooler temperatures to the area later this week.
We hit 90° for the 6th day in a row, continuing what has been a hot month already. In fact, this June has been one of the hottest on record so far. We'll keep the heat going for one more day. Morning lows will be in the low 70s with temperatures warming into the low 90s during the afternoon. Skies will bubble up with clouds, but only a few isolated showers will manage to pop up.
Rain chances will head higher on Wednesday as a storm moves into the mid-section of the country. Temperatures will finally be cooler, topping out in the mid to upper 80s.
The storm will push a front across the area on Thursday. Showers and thunderstorms will likely impact most of the Ozarks at some point during the day, with highs falling into the low to mid 80s. A front will edge south of most of the area by Friday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms possible. Highs will be in the low 80s.
The pattern will remain unsettled through the weekend as a front wobbles across the area. This will lead to a chance for scattered storms on a daily basis through the weekend. Temperatures will edge higher over the weekend into Monday.
The stormier pattern will come with a risk for a few severe storms, along with the risk of heavy rain at times.
