A mostly sunny sky is forecast Thursday with highs recovering to the low 80s. A pleasant morning kicks off the day Friday with lows in the low 60s. A returning south breeze should be enough to get the highs back to the mid 80s.

The next cold front then approaches the Ozarks on Saturday. There may be a few morning showers near Stockton Lake but these should diminish by mid-morning. Highs will quickly warm to the mid 80s.

Thunderstorms are likely to explode by mid-afternoon. A few of these storms could be severe with hail and gusty winds. I do not think this will be a big outbreak but will have to be watched.

The cold front settles into northern Arkansas by Sunday morning. A series of disturbances coming out of the Texas panhandle and Oklahoma will produce several rounds of showers and thunderstorms behind the front in the cooler air. Severe weather is not a threat but this may hold temperatures down more than I anticipate.

The pretty weather then returns for much of next week with highs in the mid 80s.
