Great news! We’re talking about RAIN!
A one-two punch will keep the opportunity for rain going into Wednesday. The first punch will come from a pocket of unsettled weather moving out of the Southwest. Showers will increase from the southwest overnight with a tendency for the wet weather to focus along and north of the interstate. The I-44 corridor will remain a hotspot for showers on and off throughout the day Tuesday.
Shower chances will wind down to just a few spotty light showers Tuesday night ahead of the second wet weather punch. A cold front from the northwest will bring rain late Tuesday night into Wednesday with the rain progressing from northwest to southeast. A few stronger storms could be associated with the frontal passage, mainly closer to Southeast Missouri and North Central Arkansas where the timing of the frontal passage will be during the afternoon.
While we won’t see a wash-out, a few places could pick up close to an inch of rain by the middle of the week. The last time we saw a good soaking was 38 days ago. It’s time.
Temperatures will cool down for the end of the week, we are expecting Thursday to be the chilliest.
