Good morning, and happy Friday! The remnants of Imelda are moving north from Texas this morning and will be in Arkansas today. However, the upper energy is breaking apart, and some of this will affect the Ozarks this afternoon. With a big increase in moisture, I expect quite a few showers and storms to pop this afternoon. While not everyone will get rain, some spots could see heavy downpours. Of course, it will bring much cooler temperatures as well, but even those that don’t see rain will be cooler than recent days with highs in the lower to middle 80s today. A few showers could linger into tonight and perhaps Saturday Morning. Models differ on the extent of rain on Saturday, with the US model bringing significant upper energy across Kansas and northern Missouri during the day. In response it keeps rain over the northern half of the Ozarks most of the day. I think this is overdone, and honestly, I expect a good part of Saturday to be dry. We should be dry for the first part of Sunday as well, but a cold front will arrive in the afternoon and evening, bringing a line of rain and storms through the area. This is probably the best chance of widespread rain we’ll see. The front should just clear the area Sunday night, bringing cooler air in for Monday morning. However, the front won’t get too far south before stalling and moving back north a bit. With upper energy occasionally moving in from the southwest we’ll see multiple chances for rain next week. The timing will likely change from day to day, but highs will be in the 80s for the most part.
