Sunday, August 7 Overnight Forecast

Weather

A dose of rain and thunderstorms today made for dreary and damp conditions as we closed out the weekend.  The weekend as a whole was much cooler than previous days.  The latest heat wave’s back has been broken as clouds and rain chances will keep temperatures in check most of this week.

For tonight into Monday morning, I’ll be eyeing areas to the west.  It looks like a combination of wet weather ingredients will lead to scattered showers and thunderstorms late tonight and into the day Monday.  The atmosphere is loaded with moisture, so heavy rain will be a big concern as folks head back to work.  Rain and thunderstorms will push into Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas before sunrise and continue through most of the morning.  The activity should gradually edge east into parts of the Eastern Ozarks by Monday afternoon.  That said, it looks like the most widespread and heavy rainfall will occur over Southwest Missouri into Northwest Arkansas.  1 to 2″ of rain will be common in that area with locally higher totals.  The rain should taper off Monday afternoon.  Temperatures will once again take a big hit with highs around 80° where clouds and rain are most persistent.  Mid 80s will be more common further east.

The overall pattern doesn’t change much on Tuesday.  The rain may not be as widespread or heavy, but scattered showers and storms are likely.  They’ll tend to be most numerous Tuesday morning.

The pattern will try to dry out Wednesday into Thursday as the front lifts north of the area.  Widely scattered storms can still be expected on Wednesday, becoming more isolated on Thursday.  Activity both days will tend to center around the afternoon.  Temperatures will also ramp back up with Thursday bringing in the highest temperatures with low to mid 90s common.

The heat will be short lived, another front will drop into the area on Friday.  This should lead to scattered showers and storms Friday.  Drier weather will follow the front this weekend.  Best of all, it looks like the front will push far enough south to not only dry out our pattern, but also bring in cooler and less humid conditions.
