Good afternoon! Storms have been affecting northern Arkansas and far southern Missouri much of the day, and clouds are covering much of southern Missouri as well. This has led to a significant range in temperatures with sunny areas in the middle and upper 80s.
A front to our south will lift slightly north tonight. While the night will begin dry for most of us storms are expected to develop in central or eastern Kansas and slide east-southeast. There isn’t much model agreement on exactly where these will form, but there is a chance that storms make it into at least western Missouri and Arkansas late tonight. Sunday will feature a mix of clouds and sun with a decent chance for scattered storms as the front slowly moves into the area. Temperatures will once again be mostly in the 80s but could be a bit warmer if fewer storms develop. A few storms may hang on into Monday as well but temperatures will be headed up next week. It currently looks mainly dry with highs in the middle 90s and a heat index just over 100.
