A swath of heavy rain will affect a portion of the Ozarks followed by a very cool weekend.
Today, the air will be a tad less humid over the Ozarks. Temperatures are running slightly below what you would expect for late July. Maximum temperatures should reach the middle eighties here in Springfield. The day will start clear and then a deck of clouds will begin to roll in from the west later this afternoon.
The clouds are connected to the next rain for the Ozarks. This system will concentrate most of the rain south and southwest of the Ozarks. This means that areas of northwest Arkansas have the highest potential rain chances and totals on Friday.
Because of the large rain area, Friday’s highs will stop in the seventies over much of the Ozarks.
This weekend (the last in July) looks cool by summer standards! I expect seventies most of the day on both Saturday and Sunday. Lows in the fifties are possible both weekend mornings. All in all, nice stuff, and a far cry from the weather last year.
