Cold Front

Today, we're talking about the heat, again. The high temperatures will be similar to Monday, reaching the mid 90s. With the muggy dewpoints and abundant sunshine, it'll feel more like the triple digits across the board. Remember, "Beat the Heat, Check the Backseat". In just about 15 minutes, your car can easily feel like 115-120°!  If you have plants or possibly a garden, be sure you are watering multiple times a day. Nighttime is the best time to water, because the plant will be able to hold more of that moisture vs in the afternoon where the sun evaporates all the water.

 Not feeling very "September-Like" on this Monday...as temperatures soar once again into the low and mid 90s.  The humidity is high...but it's still in the tolerable range....so as a result...the heat index numbers are a bit higher than the actual temperatures.  Nothing but clear skies over the top of us as a ridge of high pressure aloft is creating the hot and dry conditions.  Later Tuesday..we'll see a cold front moving into the Plains...with clouds and showers with it. This front will move through later in the week...and end the 90 degree weather.

 We're seeing a great evening for Friday night football. Temperatures are slowly falling through 70s. We'll see lows somewhere in the middle 60s.  Rain chances look very slight the next few days. There could be a few showers and storms...especially for our eastern counties on Sunday.  Later Sunday we'll see a cold front trying to move our way...and that's the system that could trigger some scattered showers and storms.   Otherwise we're looking at dry conditions through the next several days.

Today, will be pretty similar to Thursday. Highs will boost to the upper 80s, but with the heat index, it'll feel like 93° to 94°. Be sure to lather up on the sunscreen, as that sun will be blazing with the lack of cloud cover. Here's your Game of the Week forecast below - and it's looking good!  Expect the heat to rise as we head into Saturday. Humidity will also be higher, just adding to the heat index. By Sunday though, we could see some relief. A cold front will push its way south of Kansas City by early Sunday morning.

Today, it's starting to warm...slowly. After a cool start to the day near 60°, we'll easily boost to the low 80s by your lunch hour, and peak in the mid and upper 80s. Sunshine will be out in full force, so don't forget that sunscreen if you are heading outdoors.  The cause for the increase in temperatures by the weekend? Big ridge in the upper levels of the atmosphere moving in our direction. It's in Colorado now, but it'll slowly shimmy it's way towards the Ozarks, and this will bring back temperatures near 90° with high humidity for Saturday and Sunday.

Today, it's Labor Day! Most of us have the holiday off, and boy what a great day for it too. We'll see plenty of sunshine with highs in the mid 80s (as best)! Here's another good thing, the humidity is slightly lower too.  If you happen to be traveling, you'll be good to go, unless you are coming from the south and east. That's where our cold front from Sunday is currently staked out. That's the only area that have shower chances, isolated mostly. They could be mildly strong, with damaging winds, but nothing serious.

Today, it's much of the same in the Ozarks. High temperatures will boost to the low 90s, but with that heat index we're going to feel like the triple digits leading into the afternoon. Try to stay indoors if possible today, as those highs will be scorching.  But...there is some light at the end of the tunnel. High pressure continues just south of the Ozarks. A front will try to push through without much luck. This could increase slight rain chances towards our east.

Today, it's all about the rain. Our Flash Flood Watch has been extended AGAIN, this time through Thursday. Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms impacted the Ozarks overnight, causing immediate flash flood emergencies across Pulaski and Texas counties this morning. That activity has pushed east, but we're not done yet.  A warm front is the cause of the weather weather today. As it lifts towards Illinois, it will continue to bring moisture to the area. We could see a nice break in the action from lunchtime through 3 or 4pm, but after that, a few isolated storms cannot be ruled out. Since the ground is supersaturated from all the previous rain, flooding will be imminent.

 The showers and storms continue to move south out ahead of a cold front. Behind the front some cooler and drier air is filtering into the Ozarks. Sunshine will increase as we head through the day.  Temperatures are in the upper 60s and lower 70s...and will warm into the mid 80s...but lower humidity than yesterday.    High pressure over the Great Lakes will conitnue to push in the drier air. High pressure will hold through Thursday...with another chance of showers and thunderstorms for Friday.

Today, well it's much of the same across the Ozarks. Hot, Humid, and a lack of rain. In fact, below is a list of our rainfall deficit and abundance in Springfield. Oddly enough, we are still in an abundance as of July 19th. Other areas to the south of Green County (especially Northern Arkansas) are experiencing abnormally dry conditions and even moderate drought conditions.  So, what are our rain chances then? Well, it's looking better as we get towards the weekend.
