The heat wave rolls on! The ridge is holding overhead keeping the heat in place. No change is forecast for at least two more days. Therefor there is no change in the advisories either.

An excessive Heat Warning north of I-44 with a Heat Advisory south of I-44 remain in effect until 8 pm Saturday. The heat index is still forecast to top 100 degrees. Temperatures will not cool off at night with lows both Friday and Saturday morning of 74. Friday’s high will again be 94 with Saturday hitting 95.

Relief is on the way though with a cold front entering the Ozarks during the day Sunday. Thunderstorms will form along the front. Temperatures will be cooler with a low of 74 and a high of 90.

A few of these storms could be severe with hail and strong winds the main threats. Timing of this activity is still in question. Right now it appears the storms will form mid to late afternoon then head south to Arkansas. A few storms may linger into early Monday before ending.

Cool high pressure then builds into the Ozarks. Temperatures early next week should be well below average. Highs will drop to the lower 80’s with lows in the lower 60’s. I would not be surprised to hear about a few upper 50’s in the rural areas east of Springfield.
