Wednesday, July 5 Midday Forecast

Scattered showers & storms continue

Scattered showers and thunder continue Wednesday, Thursday looks beautiful! 

The upper-level low-pressure center that brought us a rather cool and soggy 4th of July is still spinning over the Ozarks today. This slow moving system will bring another round of showers and storms likely Wednesday. Expect thick cloud cover and cooler temperatures, highs will probably not make it to 80 degrees in most spots.



Again, the main concern for today will be for quick localized flooding, lightning, and some gusty winds. Many have already gotten well over an inch of rain, and today we'll add on another 0.5 to 0.75". Spots that don't drain well, or areas that are already too saturated from yesterday's rain could see some localized flash flooding. Winds could gust to 50 mph in a strong storm, but severe weather is not expected.



Rain wraps up tonight as the low finally grabs onto the jet stream and pushes east. I think we're for the most part dry by 2 AM, some clouds could linger by daybreak. Lows tonight get into the upper 60's.

Tomorrow will be beautiful! Dry air pulls in on a northwest wind behind that system. We'll have abundant sunshine and warmer temperatures. Highs will get back to normal in the upper 80's. 

Friday we'll continue to have some sunshine and warmer temperatures but there could be an isolated storm or two late in the afternoon. Saturday will be about the same, upper 80's, sun and clouds, and a small storm threat.

Sunday the storm chance looks a bit healthier, we could see a handful of storms in the afternoon, but it still doesn't look like a washout! 

Monday and Tuesday we'll dry out with sunshine and highs in the upper 80's.
