Warm and muggy this evening with temperatures only falling into the upper 60s and low 70s overnight.
Sunday will be another hot and humid day with temperatures again climbing into the low 90s. Moisture will increase just enough that we could see a handful of storms popping up during the afternoon but most places should remain dry.
By the early to mid part of next week, we'll be closely watching the remnants of Tropical Storm Alberto as it moves north off the Gulf of Mexico. Right now, it appears this system will skirt just east of the Ozarks but it will cause an increase in cloud cover by Tuesday. As a cold front interacts with this tropical moisture Wednesday into Thursday, showers and storms will return to the Ozarks with the best chance of rain being on Thursday.
Beyond this time, a strong ridge of high pressure will build across the southern Plains and this could bring a major early season heat wave to the region. High temperatures by the end of next week into the following weekend could soar into the mid and even upper 90s with heat index values in the triple digits! Summer has arrived early this year!
