8-11-2015 6-10-59 AMNorth winds behind a cool front will continue to blow today, making the Ozarks cooler and eventually less humid.

The area of high pressure coming in behind the front will stick around for quite a number of days.  This feature will keep us sunny with temperatures staying in the middle and upper eighties which isn’t too bad for the middle of August!

The humidity has been slower to drop but will begin to do so by later today. It’s this drop in humidity (as measured by the dew point) along with the clear skies which will allow overnight temperatures to tumble down into the lower sixties in many locations for the next few mornings.

With north winds in the upper atmosphere and no fronts or disturbances, rain threats will be hard to come by for at least the next four days.

The weekend temperatures are expected to creep back up to around ninety degrees.

Storms Threat/Future Radar

Storms Threat/Future Radar

Today will be hot much but it is hands down the hottest day in the forecast for the next week.

Without any thunderstorms to stop the temperature climb, today should top out in the middle nineties.  Anything above 94° would make this the hottest day of the summer. We hit 94° three times last month.

A Heat Advisory is in effect all afternoon and into the early evening. Look for the Heat Index to rise into the 103-108° range later today.

Storm Review: Damaging wind north of Springfield Saturday morning

A cool front is on the way!  This features will knock our temperature and humidity way down for most all of next week.

More showers and thunderstorms will lead the charge with this front late tonight.  I expect storms to fire to our north and slip south into the Ozarks by late evening and into the overnight hours.  The storms which first start up may produce gusty winds and small hail north of Springfield affecting areas around Lake of the Ozarks, Hermitage and Stockton this evening.

The cooler conditions start on Monday with the high temperature stopping around ninety.  But the real cooler and drier air will kick in Tuesday and last through the rest of the week.  Lows may drop into the lower sixties by Thursday morning while high temperatures stay in the eighties through Friday.
