This ridge of high pressure that has been dominating our forecast over the weekend will continue to keep us quiet and hot as we progress through the early part of the week. More sun is on tap across the Ozarks for our Tuesday with afternoon readings climbing back above average. Highs will top out in the low 90s for many locations along with a more muggy feel. Lows will be seasonable for this time of the year as the starry conditions hold. We’ll awaken to the low-mid 60s throughout the viewing area to kick-start our Wednesday. Sunshine will be the headline for our Hump Day with temps looking slightly warmer. The hotter trend in our temperatures doesn’t stop there with a more steamy feel on the menu Thursday and Friday. Highs look to surge back into the mid to possibly upper 90s around the region under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. It’s looking like we’ll see a few more clouds around Friday ahead of a weak cold front that drops our way by Saturday. We are looking dry through the day at this point with the rain holding off until dark. This boundary really doesn’t usher in any cooler air though with highs still close to 90° on Saturday. We are tracking on and off storms throughout the day so if you have outdoor plans, make sure you stay weather aware. The threat of storms lingers Sunday as well but coverage is looking a bit more isolated. Another cold front approaches the Ozarks by the start of next week and this one looks to bring a round of showers and storms and finally some more refreshing temperatures. We’ll be monitoring the threat for any strong to severe storms as time gets closer. Afternoon readings are looking to dip back into the mid-80s by Monday.
Have a great day!
