A cool front later today will spark quite a few showers and thunderstorms in the Ozarks and give us a very cool Wednesday.
Yesterday’s more isolated showers will be replaced by more organized bands of showers, thunderstorms and just plain rain from now until Wednesday evening.
An upper-level system will travel over Kansas and into Missouri today. Rain connected with this feature will diminish today as it moves east but then re-fire over the Ozarks by late afternoon.
The front will move through overnight with additional areas of showers and storms.
Overall, the threat for widespread severe thunderstorms remains low but there is a small risk for some hail and gusty winds with a few of the stronger storms.
Behind the front on Wednesday, conditions will be chilly for mid-August. The afternoon temperatures will stay in the sixties over most of the Ozarks. This same cool air will send our low temperatures down into the lower fifties by Thursday morning.
More general areas of rain with some thunder will be around the area during most of Wednesday afternoon.
The long range forecast calls for temperatures to stay below normal for the next 10 days.
