Conditions are quiet across the Ozarks this evening. Temperatures have fallen to the low to mid 50s in our eastern counties. This may cause some fog to form especially in valleys. Storms are still forecast to form by morning with locally heavy rain possible. Temperatures are forecast to fall into the low 60s to begin the day Wednesday.
Cloud cover has hung over the Ozarks for much of the day. Satellite and local weather cameras indicate that the clouds are breaking up over parts of the Ozarks. This evening is going to be quiet with temperatures falling to the lower 60s.
Thunderstorms are forecast to erupt very early in the morning and then linger until early afternoon. Localized areas may see an inch or more of rain. A few of the storms may produce moderate size hail. A second round of thunderstorms is possible early Thursday morning.
Friday looks very nice. Temperatures should remain near or slightly below normal for this time of year. A cold front then approaches the Ozarks on Saturday. Storms are forecast to develop very late in the day. I think we will get plenty of outdoor time before the storms arrive. Highs Saturday should be in the low to mid 80s. Sunday looks delightful!
The deficit on the rain is currently near 9 inches. We need to have this rain in the next few days because the long range forecast shuts off any rain chances until early October.
