After a warm and humid Saturday with a few isolated showers, we’ll see some muggy conditions overnight tonight under mainly clear skies. Winds will be light out of the south and lows will bottom out in the low to mid 70s. On Sunday, we’ll have a chance for a few showers and storms, mainly from late morning into the afternoon. These will slide southeast through the area, and I think most areas will be dry by 5 or 6 in the evening.

With a bit of cloud cover and some scattered rain around, it won’t be quite as warm on Sunday, but we’ll still see high temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s and heat indices will reach the mid to upper 90s and even a few around 100°. Winds will continue light out of the south.

After a few more showers and storms on Monday, high pressure will take control over the central and western portions of the U.S. This will cause the heat to intensify across the Ozarks along with an increase in humidity as well.

After a high around 90° on Monday, temperatures will soar into the low to mid 90s to round out the final week of July. Heat indices will likely be in the triple digits over most, if not all, of the area beginning Tuesday. If spending a lot of time outdoors, take breaks in the shade or AC when you can, stay well hydrated and use plenty of sunscreen.
