A few showers have formed this afternoon right along the Missouri Arkansas state line. This activity will quickly die off once the sun sets this evening.
A clearing sky will take place later tonight leading to fog by morning. The fog may form a low cloud deck early Friday but should eventually give way to sunshine by mid-morning. The Ozarks are in for an extended dry stretch from Friday through the middle of next week as a weak ridge builds over the region.
Highs will gradually warm to the mid 80s this weekend then low 90s early next week. Models have been very consistent with bringing a cold front and rain to the Ozarks next Wednesday. Right now I do not see any prolonged hot spell through at least the middle of August.
