Wednesday was a spring beauty and we’re teeing up another for Thursday. It looks like we’ll bypass the morning clouds with sunny morning skies giving way to a few fair-weather cumulus clouds during the afternoon. Humidity levels will remain low and winds will remain light. All in all, just about perfect.

Rain returns Friday with more heavy rain likely in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. anywhere from 0.50″ to 1.00″ is expected in our southern viewing area. Unfortunately, west-central Missouri (Nevada-Clinton-Lake Ozark) will again miss out on the higher rainfall amounts, although 0.25″ to 0.50″ is certainly possible in those areas. The rain isn’t expected to cause any flooding issues, and severe weather chances look pretty minimal and are focused more toward Central Arkansas.

The good news is that there is a cold front coming through with the rain on Friday that will help keep our good weather running smoothly. We will be dry this weekend into the start of next week with temperatures Saturday-Tuesday in the 70s. Skies will be abundantly sunny this weekend into the start of the work week.
