A weak cold front has been sweeping across the Ozarks this afternoon. A line of strong to severe storms is out in front of this system and is moving east at a good clip. The majority of the storms will be east of the Ozarks by evening.
One or two storms may form behind the line in a very humid atmosphere. The rest of the night should be quiet with the potential for light morning fog. Lows will drop to near 70.
Additional thunderstorms are likely on Saturday as a wave currently in Wyoming finally makes it to the Ozarks. Highs will warm from the mid 80’s to nearly 90. One more round of storms is likely Saturday night into Sunday before calmer weather returns. Highs Sunday will reach the upper 80’s to low 90’s.
Next week for the most part looks hot and dry. A few pop up storms cannot be ruled out but will be very isolated. Heat advisories will likely be needed so watch for updates.
