The big story today were the howling winds. They produced scattered areas of tree damage and power outages as winds gusted between 40 and 50 mph. Winds have backed off this evening, and the rest of the night looks quiet. That will change as we close out the week.
For tonight, we’ll find mostly clear skies with temperatures falling into the mid 60s.
We’ll find ourselves between storms on Thursday. Skies will be partly cloudy and winds won’t be nearly as strong as on Wednesday. Temperatures will warm into the mid 80s across the Ozarks.
We’ll enter another active stretch Thursday night through Saturday. It looks like two rounds of storms will impact the region. The first will come through late Thursday night into Friday morning. This round of storms will move in after midnight and could produce some isolated severe weather.
Friday afternoon looks pretty quiet, but a second round of storms will sweep into the area late Friday night. Severe weather chances look higher with the Friday night round, especially near and west of Hwy. 65. The storms will likely arrive late in the night with rain lingering into Saturday morning.
Showers should taper off and shift out of the area Saturday evening. Temperatures will be a little cooler.
Sunshine will dominate Sunday’s weather with pleasant afternoon highs in the low 70s after a cool start.
Quiet weather will be short-lived with another batch of showers and thunderstorms moving through on Tuesday. Another round of cooler weather will follow on Wednesday.
