Few stronger storms possible
The final front of the work week has moved over the past 12 hours, bringing showers and storms to the region. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are on the table throughout the day, but we will see a few rays of sunshine at times. It won’t be a washout, but you might want to keep the umbrella handy just in case. With instability rising ahead of the front, we may also see some stronger storms. Marginal risk has been put in place by the Storm Prediction Center meaning hail and gusty winds are possible. A drier evening is forecast as this wave of moisture heads southeast. The high then takes over behind this disturbance and this will lead to calmer conditions on Saturday.
The heat takes over
As this ridge builds over the weekend and the upper level flow turns to the southwest, a sharp rise in our temperatures is on the cards. It also allows a drier pattern to develop over the first half of next week. The highs seem to go from the 80s on Saturday to the 90s on Sunday with lots of sunshine. As this ridge is strong, more sun and heat are present. Times will likely hit the mid to high 90s by Sunday into Monday. Looks like temperatures could exceed 100° Sunday through Tuesday with possible heat advisories. Be sure to take frequent air conditioning breaks if possible and remember to wear your lighter colored clothes. Dry, windy and warm conditions prevail through the middle of next week with highs in the low to mid 90s. A cold front is approaching the Ozarks late Wednesday through Thursday which could bring a or two parasitic storms. This is something we will be watching over the next few days.
