FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Sizzling Summer Sunshine
Highs in the 90′s with only isolated rain chances
It has been another hazy hot and humid day for the Ozarks. Tonight looks warm with a clear sky and lows in the low 70′s. A handful of storms are possible Saturday as high temperatures climb to the low 90′s.
The heat index will hit the 95-100 degree range. A weak cool front moves into central Missouri on Sunday and then washes out before reaching the Ozarks. A line of storms may accompany the front and impact our northern counties. An outflow boundary may help initiate a few afternoon storms however I expect most places to remain dry. Lows Sunday morning will again be in the low to mid 70′s with a high in the low 90′s.
While there still is a chance for rain on Monday the chance is much lower than previously thought. Temperatures will remain much the same with lows in the low 70′s and highs in the low 90′s.
A ridge of high pressure expands over the Ozarks next week. It appears they may be the hottest spell so far this summer as we head towards the end of the month. Highs should reach the mid 90′s Wednesday and Thursday with a heat index in the 100-105 degree range. There is also a chance for a scattered storm next Friday. Keep in mind the high may still be in the mid 90′s so it will be very uncomfortable.
