Storm Team Forecast Discussion

Good morning! The cold front that moved through last night is in central Arkansas this morning, with extensive low clouds behind the front over much of our region. Temperatures are in the 50s to lower 60s with patchy drizzle. Clouds could very well hold on much of the day for northern Arkansas and perhaps far southern Missouri, with sun more likely over central Missouri. Temperatures will be cooler than yesterday and generally in the lower to middle 70s. High pressure will move away tonight and moisture will be lifted over the western edge of it. This should result in thunderstorms very late tonight (well after midnight) into Wednesday, some of which could contain some hail. Storms will continue at least on a scattered basis Wednesday, making the temperature forecast quite tricky. Right now it looks like Friday and Saturday will be our driest days, with rain and storms likely Saturday night with our next front. Models are actually bringing the remnants of Hurricane Odile northeast just ahead of the front and this may lead to some locally heavy rain. Dry and cooler weather will return for much of Sunday into Monday.
