I’ll be watching for more clusters of rain and storms flowing in from the northwest today and tomorrow.
Severe storms are in the forecast for today. High wind and hail are the main threats today. It looks like the storms will organize better by later today and tonight, coming in with a line from the northwest and north. I’ll watch for developments during the day.
A weak front is sagging southward today and Wednesday. It will continue to focus the storms and the rain. The latest projection suggests a broad 1-2″ rain swath is possible from the activity today and early tomorrow. (image insert).
But the rain doesn’t end with this round. It looks like more is on the way later in the week. Projections include 3-4″ of total rainfall for the next five days in an area which includes southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. It could be just what the doctor ordered as those areas have been the driest this summer.
It will also be cooler! There may be a day over the weekend in which our temperatures stay in the seventies! Lows will fall into the lower sixties.
